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!

Harpoon UFO Pumpkin
12 oz bottle

Surprisingly good. For the most part Harpoon has left me "so-so" but this pumpkin beer is excellent.

Its cloudy orange beneath a short white head that drops but holds a solid surface covering (thin, but complete). It also offers fairly good lacing with splashes and streaks like fake halloween cobwebs (y'now, in the spirit of things).

The aroma is all about pumpkin spice - heavy on All-spice. Fruity. Apple pie? Some ginger. Slightly different than usual. Nutmeg... Over-spiced? It's loaded, yet it doesn't overwhelm.

The flavor follows the aroma. It's heavily spiced but somehow not overbearing. Perhaps because the bitterness is restrained, perhaps because the way that they've spiced it hasn't left it with any harsh notes. Malt comes through but is basically a base for the spice. Definitely a "pumpkin spice" beer.

In the mouth it's smooth with a medium body and a moderate carbonation.

Overall it's a pretty nice "pumpkin spice" beer. I'd imagine that you could drink a few of these despite its inherent character. Well done.

12 ounce bottle, w/o freshness/bottling indication provided.

Pours lightly hazed light brown amber. Minor off white head, quickly departs. Leaves a delicate film, collar and just minor spots of lacing.

Sweet malt nose with some mild cinnamon and typical fall spicing.

On the lighter and thinner side of the pumpkin beer spectrum. Subtle spicing and more sweet malts. Ehhhh, middle of the road at best
