Day #287 – Post Road Pumpkin Ale

October 15, 2011

The Rangers are going to the World Series!!!! Back to back American League Champions baby! I was working the game last night doing valet parking and that place went nuts after the win! Crazy night.

Post Road Pumpkin Ale


I’m back on my pumpkin kick. This one is by Brooklyn Brewing even though it isn’t under the Brooklyn name. Pumpkin spice beer at 5%.

This beer pours a clear rusty orange color with a tall foamy beige head. The head response is pretty quick and lasting.

Wow I could smell this beer from the moment I popped the top! Lots of pumpkin notes in this. Ginger spice and nutmeg are also prevalent but the pumpkin was very strong.

The flavor however was a bit disappointing. Some pumpkin flavor but it is more astringent and bitter now. As the beer warms the astringency intensifies to the point where I didn’t even finish this one. Too bad.
