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 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!

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.
