I'm a huge pumpkin ale fan, I typically like Unita's offerings very much, but this one let me down. It lacks that classic pumpkin ale flavor to me. It is devoid of any of the classic spices/flavors that make this style so appealing to me. They may have been going for a more subtle approach, don't know, but overall this has been a HUGE dissapointment for me. I would not buy again.

I kind of hope I got a bad batch, as I've liked much of what I've tried from Uinta previously. But reading a few of the reviews, I'm not sure.

Appearance: Incredibly bright, with no haze and little particulate. A light amber color. Decent head retention and lacing.

Aroma: Where this beer fell apart for me. Rather than pumpkin pie spices, caramel malt notes, or even a bit of roast that I may have expected from a harvest pumpkin, I got sulfur and that cheesy, old hop aroma, with what was maybe a bit of underlying floral pumpkin aroma.

Taste: Sweet caramel notes first, pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices on the finish, but they're very subtle. A little sweet potato flavor is detectable as well.

Mouthfeel: Medium to low carbonation, and a fairly thin body.

Fairly disappointing overall. Definitely would not buy this again, unless someone told worked hard to convince me I got a really bad batch.

Served from the bottle into nonic glass

A- Poured a dark brownish orange color with soapy off-white head with huge bubbles that left splashy lace.

S- Very big nutmeg notes, ginger, pumpkin, bready, and caramel notes.

T- Lots of nutmeg, ginger, and pumpkin flavor with some caramel and bready notes.

M- Lighter bodied, prickly carbonation, somewhat watery finish but not bad for a 4% ABV ale with quite a bit of flavor.

O- This is a really solid pumpkin ale with the nice pumpkin spices you expect and a nice bready and caramel malt base.

Uinita Punk'n pours a stoic tawny color with a slight haze to it. There's somewhat vigorous carbonation going on, and the beverage has got a quarter-inch sticky, frothy cream head. With a good whiff I can definitely state that I detect actual, natural pumpkin here. Like the inside of a real raw pumpkin. Authentic! Also, taking a back seat, the slew of usual spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg. The flavor is quite close to the aroma, and in this case, it's a beautiful thing. This is a clean tasting real pumpkin beer. Not too over the top and also it still tastes like a beer, with light hops and biscuity malt identifiable in the taste. This tastes remarkably full and coats the mouth great for only a 4% alcohol beer. The flavor lingers nicely in the finish as well. I would buy this again, which is a phrase not thrown around lightly with pumpkin ales, unfortunately.
