Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: mostpoetsdo on 07-23-2011

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!

Served in a perfect pint glass

A - It is orange with golden highlights. There is some suspended yeast in it. It is capped by a couple inches of off-white/beige head.

S - I get the typical nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, etc.

T - I get the spices in the flavor as well.

M - Thin to Moderate

O - I kind of forgot about this one in the refrigerator. The smell held up really well. The taste may have faded. It's a decent. I used to love this style, but Pumking ruined most of them for me.

Comes out of the tap a hazy honey golden with a fairly thick pale golden fine-bubbled head. Aroma has malty and fruity notes plus hints of cinnamon and pumpkin. Malty flavor has hoppy and cinnamon notes, as well as a good amount of pumpkin taste. Unlike many other pumpkin ales I have tried, the pumpkin flavor does not dominate the others, which is a plus. Smooth texture has good body and a decent amount of fizz. Save it for fall - or enjoy it now.

Pours hazy, rustic orange with a scant, off-white head and no real lacing in a tulip glass.

Nice, sweet pumpkin aroma with less spice than most that warms more akin to sweet potato pie.

Sweet and sharp up front with pumpkin flavors discernible. However, bitterness is at odds with acidity and a long astringent finish. This significantly detracts from the enjoyment.

Medium body with no discernible alcohol. Carbonation is fizzy and there is a sharp astringency.

This is a middle-of-the-road pumpkin ale, worthy of those who enjoy this style.

I poured this into a perfect pint glass, it has a nice murkey orange color body with a very little head that dissapears quickly leaving no lace behing. The smell is aromactic of spices, mainly cinnamon that i can smell. The taste starts off a little spicy with the cinnamon and spices, as it warms up a little bit the pumpkin comes into play and on the finish a nice little hop bite comes into play also. The mouth feel is really nice and overall this is a really good pumpkin beer.
