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!

12 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter

A: Hazy dirty blonde copper, with no head or lacing.

S: Mostly pumpkin and light on the spice.

T: Mild pumpkin flavor, that is just plain malt and some spice.

M: Smooth, slightly coarse carbonation throughout.

O: Again, more towards the bottom of the pack for pumpkin beers.

Harpoon is one of my local favorite breweries, and always puts out a wonderful product. And when they put out a seasonal offering, being local always makes for a fresh, tasty beer.

A: Bubble, bubble, no toil, no trouble. A hazy, cloudy wonderful orange color with a substantial head and lasting lacing.

S: Balanced spicy aroma, with cinnamon and pumpkin making its presence known.

T: Pumpkin and spice and everything nice! The flavors of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and sweet malt come blasting through. A more balanced flavor than most pumpkin ales on the market.

M: A nice medium body, with wonderful carbonation. No warmth from the 5.9 at all.

D: This is the only area where you need to beware. This offering can catch up to your taste buds if you aren't ready for it. Unlike most pumpkin ales, you will feel comfortable enjoying more than the usual of these. But, the spicy flavor can be overpowering in the end if you aren't ready.

Very nice seasonal offering!

A fantastic seasonal choice. The light spices in this one give it a relaxed fall feel and make it a nice, chill on the patio kind of brew.

Good pumpkin flavor, weird after taste. Not my favorite, but could drink a bunch with out complaining.
