Brooklyn Post Road Pumpkin Ale
At Wegman's, I picked up a case of Post Road Pumpkin Ale from Brooklyn Brewery. The beer is amber in color and smells sweet of pumpkin. The beer tastes mostly of pumpkin and has a slight spice bite on the finish, but not prevalent. The alcohol content is 5.0% ABV. The beer was ok, but not one of my favorites. I am glad I only purchased a six-pack and not a case. The Post Road Pumpkin Ale is more focused on the pumpkin than spices, and I prefer a delicate balance of pumpkin and spices. I would drink it again if it was available at a bar, but not pick up a case of it or choose it over other pumpkin ales.
