Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
Imagine a pumpkin vine wound its way in a field of barley, and a brewer harvested it all to make a beer. Add Northwestern hops and a blend of spices, and you've got UFO Pumpkin. The malt combination provides a smooth body and slightly sweet flavor, which balances perfectly with the earthy notes derived from the pure pumpkin. And like all of our UFO beers, UFO Pumpkin is unfiltered so all the wonderful flavors are right there in your glass. Cheers!

Glass Used: nonic

Appearance: Orange-light copper body, whipped egg white foamy head. Leaves layered lacing behind as the head deflates.

Smell: Spicy cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg a wee bit of clove followed up with some vegetal gourd notes & sweet malts.

Taste: A good dose of sweet malts followed by the familiar, but subdued pumpkin and spice flavors. Nice.

Mouthfeel: Very soft & aqueous on the tongue. Easy drinking.

Overall: I was rather surprised by this pumpkin ale. It's a medium flavored, easy drinking pumpkin beer. Not overly sweet or spiced. While I prefer a more aggressive approach, I would definitely recommend this one for those looking to try their first pumpkin beer.

a beautiful head followed by picture perfect lacing. This brew has a spicey nose that follows through on the pallet with a profile of predominantly cinnamon, with more reserved pumpkin essence.earthy, and not overly sweet, but with a serious spice punch.

not the best pumpkin beer by far, but a good example that runs spice forward and shows what the style is about. Wish there was more pumpkin and less spice, but it works.
