BEER INFO

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

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!

Nice golden small head. A bit of a spicier pumpkin. Drinks light and crisp. Not bitter at all with a decent drinkability of a few of em

I never diss a craft beer but guys (Harpoon) try harder next year on less alcohol taste and concentrate on the beer.

From the bottle, it pours a yellowy-orange amber with a small head. The head quickly dissipates, leaving a film and ring around the glass. Pumpkin pie in the nose, and a bit of malt on the tongue.

My first pumpkin brew. Nice looking beer. Aroma like pumpkin pie with all the requisite spices, and taste follows the nose. Mouthful is nice and soft, in keeping with an unfiltered beer. The mild, but just noticeable enough hop presence saves this beer from being cloying in its sweetness and balances things out. Nevertheless, I could only drink this once in a while, not because it's bad, just due to personal tastes/mood..The surprisingly high (though not really tasteable) alcohol content does add to the enjoyment, although I know this quality should not impact a review. Bottom line, if you're in the mood for this type of beer, it's good. I had my doubts, but liked this beer more than I was expecting to. Cheers.
