$1.99/single 12oz bottle

Style: Pumpkin Ale

5.00% ABV

Availability: Seasonal (Fall)

Enjoyed from a pint glass

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.

A: Very clear amber-brown with no head. Abundant visible carbonation.

S: The standard pumpkin ale spices; cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, allspice, a little floral presence. I should mention these aromas are very subtle. Smells weak.

T: Very little pumpkin, heavy malts, light spice notes. Possibly the most underwhelming pumpkin ale I’ve had. I ended up pouring this out. Why bother with that low abv and lack of flavor. That’s two pumpkin ale drain pours in a row.

M: light bodied with little carbonation.

O: Boring and lackluster; surprising news for this brewery. I would skip this and spend your money on something with characters.
