UFO Pale Ale is our twist on a traditional British Pale Ale. It pours a vibrant amber color with a medium malt body and an assertive hop character throughout. This beer is well balanced, with grassy, flowery hop flavors and aromatics. Like the rest of our UFO beers we leave it Unfiltered for more natural taste, a soft, full mouthfeel, and a distinctive cloudy appearance. UFO Pale Ale is perfect for an autumn's evening, a night out or just a change of pace. We hope you enjoy drinking it as much as we enjoy brewing it! Cheers!

Serving: On tap at the beer hall in a sampler
Serving: 6 September 2014

Appearance: Hazy pale yellow with a weird brownish tinge which makes it seem somewhat sickly. If the color was a little more golden or orange it would be a lot prettier. Love the cloudiness though, looking forward to seeing how it changes the flavor profile. 3.5/5

Aroma: Smells kind of like dank hops, like most of Harpoon's hoppier options. 3.5/5

Taste: Pretty decent. Soft kiss of hops overlayed with a nice sweet malt and a fuller flavor due to the suspended yeast. Decent. 3.75/5

Mouthfeel: The suspended yeast make this one feel softer and fuller on the tongue. Combined with light carbonation, it makes for a pretty silky APA. Not bad! 3.75/5

Overall: One of the better offerings from Harpoon, since I feel like it isn't full of the dank musty hops that plagues a lot of their stuff. The softer hops combined with a lightly filtered beer make for a pretty refreshing, if pedestrian, drinking experience.
