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!

superspak (2602) - Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2013
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 12/15/2013. Pours hazy orange amber color with a 1 finger foamy white head with horrible retention, that reduces to a ring of lace quickly. Minimal lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of pumpkin, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, ginger, wheat, bread, banana, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with prominent spice/yeast ester notes and moderate malt balance; with good strength. Taste of pumpkin, cinnamon, gingerbread, nutmeg, clove, wheat, brown sugar, light banana, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, gingerbread, nutmeg, clove, brown sugar, wheat, light banana, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance, robustness, and complexity of malt, spice, and yeast ester flavors; with a good sweetness/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is good pumpkin ale. Good balance and robustness of pumpkin, malt, and spice flavors; and very smooth to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

jgb9348 (4734) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Hazy orange and light amber coloured body with a good three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of squash, light spices, earth and a touch of nuts - no hops at all on this one. Medium-bodied; Good rich squash and pumpkin flavour and body with some moderate spices of allspice and nutmeg and a good sweetness showing toffee and caramel, all with a relatively easy to drink feel of wheat. Aftertaste shows a nice rich squash flavour, but some light sugars make it end fairly well. Overall, an interesting and good blend of a wheat and a pumpkin-based beer with a rich body and some nice light spices and sugars. Good to try! I sampled this pint on draught at Westside Brewery in New York, New York yesterday on 01-November-2013.

chinchill (1866) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 31, 2013
12 oz can, bottom dated BB 15 Jan., 2014, served in a snifter. A vigorous pour roused a moderate size bone-colored head that had limited retention. Nice, cloudy, orange-amber body. Well balanced flavor with the wheat, pumpkin pulp and spicing all coming out clearly, and a hint of hops too. Medium-light body is a touch watery and not as soft as hoped. O: nice, easy drinking wheat-based pumpkin beer.

Average pumpkin. HazY copper, small head, no lace or almost. No perceivable aroma other than a bit of hopps and flowers. Cinammony, with a bit of spice in a rather abrupt finish.

12oz bottle - pours unfiltered dark honey with ivory head. Nose is pumpkin and nutmeg. Malty and spicy. Autumnal for sure.

brianairb85 (72) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2013 Pours Amber with a short lasting head. The aroma is weak with small amounts of pumpkin purée. The beer taste is boring and flat. It is a very light pumpkin beer with some character.
