60. Post Road Pumpkin Ale

This will almost certainly be my last pumpkin/fall beer of the season as the Winter brews are starting to be released. This one tastes very similar to Shipyard’s Pumpkinhead ale which I enjoy. Maybe slightly less spice than Pumpkinhead but has similar  aroma and finish. Pours with a nice head and leaves lacing on the glass. This beer has just the right amount of carbonation and finished smooth. I find it hard to drink more than one pumpkin beer in a sitting but might have been able to do more of this one if I had not purchased just a single.

Brewers 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.
