BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brooklyn Brewery
New York, United States

Style: Pumpkin Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
Early American colonialists, seeking natural ingredients for brewing ales, turned to pumpkins, which were plentiful, flavorful and nutritious. Blended with barley malt, pumpkins became a commonly used beer ingredient. Post Road Pumpkin Ale brings back this tasty tradition. Hundreds of pounds of pumpkins are blended into the mash of each batch, creating a beer with an orange amber color, warm pumpkin aroma, biscuity malt center, and crisp finish.

L -- Clear amber, highly carbonated, modest head with minimal lacing
S -- cinnamon, pumpkin, mango, apple, malt, brown sugar
T -- quite bitter, which overshadows the pumpkin pie spices, malt, citrus, and... play doh?
F -- Medium bodied and smooth, too bitter to be considered a balanced flavor
O -- Smuttynose is a better pick for the same price point and style, but worth a try

L: Clear deep gold beer with an off white head that leaves a few random globs of lacing.
S: Sweet toasted malts, bready yeast, cloves and cinnamon.
T: Pie spices like cloves and cinnamon with a floral hops. Yeasty bready flavor with little sweetness. Seems overly bitter and not sweet enough to enhance the hops and bitter spices.
F: Light to medium body with aggressive carbonation that stings the tongue.
O: An okay beer that could use a little less carbonation and a little more sweetness to balance out the nice hops and spices.

From El Corte Ingles, 75th anniversary feria. In Teku glass. After dinner. Correct but the pumpkin is noticeable and it is a flavour i cant end up liking, although this beer has some bitterness that compesates it. Low on foam although a bit persist until the end
