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 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.

Pumpkin beets are hands down my favorite.

The UFO is unfiltered and looks fantastic. Smell is like pumpkin pie.

Taste is like a liquid pumpkin pie. It's for once not to taste raw pumpkin like other pumpkin ales. This one taste like a dessert.

Well done.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle with an "Enjoy By" date of 12/15/13 stamped on the bottle neck glass. Unfiltered, pours a cloudy amber orange with a medium head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is the best pumpkin ale this year, possibly best that I've experienced. Truly just like freshly baked pumpkin pie. Essence of pumpkin, vanilla, wheat pie crust and cinnamon and nutmeg spice. Taste is mainly sweet pumpkin with nutmeg, vanilla and cinnamon notes. A complex array of flavors with small hop presence to balance. The spiced finish lingers for a longtime.

Update on 9/5/13: I've had several of these this year after picking up a case and have decided this is the my favorite pumpkin ale of 2013. My guests from California agree.
