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.
