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 youíve 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!

A pretty solid pumpkin beer, the flavor of pumpkin really comes through. Unfortunately there wasnít a lot of spice notes, but all in all a pretty decent pumpkin beer.

Bottle, enjoy by 12/15/13. Nose actually has some strong pumpkin character, but also very sweet and heavy in pie spice, but some pleasant floral perfumes and yeast as well. Pours hazy orange with a noisy, beige head thatís soon gone. Crisp medium-full body with a Hefeweizen-like amount of yeast, some small citrus and earthy pumpkin, pie spices are under control. Really like the heavy carbonation with the yeast, hitting all the right HW notes, even some lesser esters and phenols under the spice additions (although I suppose they are adding actual cloves). Honestly, really impressed! Something different and successful.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle. Aroma has notes of sweet brown sugar, nutmeg and fall spices, pumpkin and caramel malts. Nice aroma. Hazy medium orange/amber hue with a small off-white head that mostly diminished and left no lace. Flavor is very sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is medium bodied and oily with an average carbonation. Overall a nice pumpkin brew with a really good brown sugar note. Enjoyed it.

12 oz into a large bulbous wheat glass, 34oz it says. Aroma is of dry pumpkin, but fresh in the fields of hallows eve. Taste is the same, with pumpkin, cinnamon, and the like prevailing above. Murky, golden orange color, with solid pumpkin resemblance going on here. After taste keeps slamming me with the pumpkin, a nice yet full frontal example of the type, but definatley not too overwhelming. The tone suggests a ripe pumpking with the sees alreay burnt, is that relavant? Not sure, but this one keeps up with the season and is very satifying on its own. Enjoy!

Decent pumpkin ale. The spice slightly overpowers the pumpkin and the body is a tad thin but itís not overly sweet/spicy, a problem with many pumpkin ales.

Pours a bit hazy. Light in color, and is a smooth pumpkin beer. This isnít in my top pumpkin beers, but it is balanced and easy to drink. Overall, Iíll buy a few every Autumn.
