Pumpkin Ale |  5.90% ABV

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!

A - Poured EXTREMELY aggressively by an inexperienced bartender, massive head that disappated very quickly, glass covered in beer, blah blah blah. Regardless, the beer was a good deep orange color with some carbonation and lacing.

S - The smell is pumpkin and fall spices through and through. Magnificent cornucopia of scents. Rich earthy hoppiness, some spices (allspice, nutmeg, cloves) and of course, some warm inviting pumpkin.

T - Don't know what happened. It tastes nothing like it smells. It tastes like a plain beer, maybe a lighter wheat beer, without a single trace of pumpkin. I can smell it still, but I can't taste it all.

M - Sticky, but not too much. Some weight to it.

O - Overall, if it tasted how it smelled, I'd be much happier, but it didn't, so of course, I'm not very happy. However, Harpoon does have a history of making good beer, so I can't be all that upset I guess. One bad beer doesn't make a brewing company bad, it might just have been a bad batch. But, I think I'll stick to the darker, stronger pumpkin beers from the likes of Southern Tier, Weyerbacher, and Dogfish Head.

Pumpkin beer in March? Yes - picked up of a variety pack. Poured into a sam adams custom glass, color is orange, copper, light amber, very effervescent, head presents but dissipates quickly.

Smell is light spice, light malt, spice profile is some ginger, allspice - not overdone.

Taste is light pale malt, some toast, biscuit, wheat, then some lighter spices, ginger, allspice, cinnamon and maybe some vanilla.

Mouthfeel was sharp, crisp at first, the settled as it warmed and the carbonation dissipated creating a more pleasing presence. Flavors present on the tongue and then linger on the sides of the mouth.

Overall, a very good, pretty clean and good tasting pumpkin ale. nice to see the flavors hold up from the fall.
