Brooklyn Post Road Pumpkin Ale

Having a beer during an ESPN Fantasy Football draft.

I wrote: "This beer is off to a great start with lovely pumpkin spices on the nose. It's followed by a great taste. Good stuff."

Website Information:
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.
