2.7/5 rDev -24.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
Appearance: nice orange - amber color to it. Thins at the outside and gets lighter. Head at the edges of the glass and some lasting bubbles on the surface. This so far is a good looking pumpkin ale.
Smell: a great mixture of spices and pumpkins all blended together. Smells great and exactly what i'd expect from a pumpkin ale.
Taste: First thing i thought: spicy asian dish. Right off the bat the spices hit you, and then the dissipate rather quickly w/ an alcoholic aftertaste. Almost no pumpkin taste to it. A bit disappointing.
Mouthfeel: Low carbonation, but i can still feel it. This beer isn't thick, nor is it heavy. A happy medium. This has sluggability.
Overall: A hometown beer for me, and it lets me down. I have had UFO pumpkin before, and i didn't remember it being this low quality. Great appearance and smell, but the taste just brings it down. The mouthfeel would be great, except the taste brings it down.

12 ounce bottle, stamp on bottle says enjoy by 02/15/14. Guess I can't complain, a buddy gave me a bottle of this a couple weeks ago so it was free. And I'm in the mood for a pumpkin beer so might was well try it! Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a cloudy orange/amber color with some sediment floaties noticeable. There's also an inch and a half off-white head with good retention, along with a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like pumpkin spices and pumpkin. The taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like pumpkin spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves), pumpkin, and some bready malt. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit creamy, smooth and easy to drink. I liked this brew, hopefully this upcoming fall I'll try a fresher batch of this!
