BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Harpoon Brewery & Beer Hall
Massachusetts, United States
harpoonbrewery.com

Style: Pumpkin Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.90%

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!

2.28/5  rDev -36.5%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.25

A - A dirty orange color, almost looking like apple cider, slightly cloudy; a 1/2 inch off-white head settles to the rim, no lacing, a moderate level of carbonation can be seen feeding the last of the head, which ultimately disappears completely
S - Not too much going on here, very mild apple and spice, but all very slight
T - An odd bitterness to this beer that I didn't particularly care for, the slightest hint of pumpkin is there, but only if you're trying to find it; a very odd (not good) aftertaste
F - Fizzy and a bit thin, slightly dry
O - I tried, but either Pumpkin beers are just a seasonal novelty to make cool bottle labels or pumpkins were just not meant for making beer. I will continue to try these, but I have found very, very few that are worth a damn.

Appearance: Cloudy orange. Left little to no head.
Smell: Spice, pumpkin, cinnamon, and a tart citrus scent.
Taste: Pumpkin pie. Just like the smell.

This is so good. It's a liquid pumpkin pie, and that's a good thing. Much better than what I was expecting. I will get this again next year.
