Gourd-geous Brews--Post Road Pumpkin Ale
Post Road's pumpkin pie aroma is bolstered by nutmeg and maybe some cinnamon. This pumpkin ale is beer first and pumpkin second. There is lots of autumn-style pumpkin flavour, but backed with a bitter ale base. The aftertaste is bitter, but you get one last blast of pumpkin way at the very end.
As pumpkin beers go, Post Road Pumpkin Ale is ahead of the pack. It's not the very best, but it's up there. Not too sweet and filled with real beer qualities--a real seasonal treat.
Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
