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!

Pumpkin is nowhere to be found in this from my point of view..quite bland and boring..really not good at all..spices and pumpkin? Perhaps you need The UFO to find them..after a few sips a drain pour..was expecting a better offering

the pumpkin pie flavor of his brew is simply spot on. terrific blend of pumpkin, nutmeg with a true cinnamon bark flavor that takes charge. the brew has a moderate body on the light side with a carbonation that is vibrant enough in so that it has an edge. this combines well with a nearly creamy and frothy head. not really at all beery except for the aroma which will tell you little about the taste. no alcohol apparent but you will get a nice pumpkin buzz (unless you rate off of 2 ounces). if you really like pumpkin then this is the beer for you.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear but faintly hazed amber with a thin white head. Lots of spices on the nose, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg. Medium bodied, wheat, pie spices, more subtle than the nose would suggest. Soft bitterness, sweetness, light malt and pie spices.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 12, 2012
12 ounce bottle from State Line. Pours a hazy amber color with a large fizzy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of pumpkin, banana. heavy pumpkin spices. The taste is pumpkin, spice, earthy notes, hoppy finish. Medium bodied with a bit of lingering spice. Pretty generic, but decent.

Aroma is full of nutmeg and a dash of cinnamon sweetness. Poured a cloud brown orange but had no head. Flavor was sweet, but robust with nutmeg and cinnamon. In some ways closer to the smoothness of a pumpkin pie. Palate had a zesty froth to it.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 Smells just like pumpkin puree with all the proper spices. Beer advocate says this is the best pumkin beer. My money is still with Pumking.

Draft at the source. Hazy yellow gold color, fluffy white head. Aroma of spice and gourd. Taste is slightly sour gourd and spice.

Pours a cloudy orange with a white head that quickly dissipates into some moderate lacing. The aroma screams fall full of spices but not overbearing. The taste unfortunately falls a little short for me. There’s very good spice on the tongue but it finishes with a weird sort of bitterness. The combo doesn’t quite work for me. If the body were a little thicker, it’s possible that the pleasant spice notes could carry through but that’s not case. Decent.

Meh - sort of a thin bodied beer full of fall seaonal spices... So, conclusion,... if you like cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamon,... you’ll like this?? I dunno.

pours a golden color which is not clear, and a foamy white head. the aroma is pumpkin, cinamin, cloves, yeast, , allspice, (pumpkin pie spices) and malt. the flavor is strong up front with pumpkin and fades very quickly to spices flavor.. then feeling very watery and leaving a not so great after taste. Im not a big fan of pumpkin ales and out of the ones i have tried.. this is towards the bottom of the list.
