Although not prevalent from the marketing, Post Road Pumpkin Ale is a product of Brooklyn Brewery.  I have often wondered why such a fine beer does not proudly proclaim the Brooklyn name.  The rumor is that Post Road was the name of the brewery bought by Brooklyn that owned this recipe.  However, I still do not understand the lack of updated packaging.

Post Road is a beer I must buy each fall.  I only have a couple beers each season that I insist on having and this one makes the cut.  When poured from a bottle into a pint glass you should see a medium white head that will dissipate.  The beer has an orange tinge to the normal amber color and has solid pumpkin pie aroma. When drinking Post Road, you taste a distinct maltiness coupled with bitterness and a light body.  The beer finishes crisp and dry.

With a 5% ABV this is a beer you can sit around and drink all night.  I recommend serving Post Road between dinner and dessert if your the host separates the two.  Either way, Post Road Pumpkin Ale is a must have for the fall season.
