Post Road Pumpkin Ale – A Thanksgiving Pumpkin Special Series Cont.

post_road_pumpkin_ale
It’s now Saturday afternoon…Time for a turkey sandwich, some re-heated corn and stuffing, and a pumpkin ale.   Tonight we have Brooklyn Brewery’s offering, Post Road Pumpkin Ale.  It claims to be more of a traditional pumpkin ale, and in my opinion, it succeeded.  There isn’t much in the way of spice, like with some of the others I’ve reviewed.   It’s not what I’d call a fruity beer at all, actually. The pumpkin balances hops in the middle, and the finish is dry, with a hint of cinnamon.   This is a solid beer for any ale lover.

I give it a 4.4 out of 5.

This is part 5 of a 8 part Thanksgiving weekend series.
