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!

Spookgolds (241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Bottle from craft beer outlet. Pours a nice hazy orange, with some pumpkin and spices in the nose. Taste however is a bit sweet/spicy upfront with some slight pumpkin-ness. A bit malty. This is ok, probably won’t have again.

tfontana (53) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 13, 2015
Bottle from Signal Variety, Plaistow, NH. Aroma is, surprise, surprise like pumpkin pie--cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice. Appearance is hazy orange with consistent carbonation and small white head with decent retention and negligible lacing. Taste is moderately sweet. Palate is medium bodied, milky texture, with average carbonation with above average kick at the tip of the tongue toward the finish, which is short. Overall a moderately flavorful representative of the genre. No surprises here to the good or bad.

I rather enjoyed this one. I'd say it's one of the better pumpkin varieties out there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very light on the pumpkin flavor. Brown sugar taste to it. Middle of the road seasonal beer.

ryanscourt (865) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Cloudy orange color. Aroma minimal and palat is pretty boring. Reminds me of a pumpkin blue moon.

On tap at Sticky Lips on recommendation of bartender. Yes, this is pretty decent. Very rich in spices, but the best part is the thick rich palate, a bit oily. Plenty of body.

jflopsu (743) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Pours a hazy rust orange with thick white head. Has a sweet malt and cinnamon aroma. A sweet taste of cinnamon, nutmeg, light pumpkin and finishes with malts. A watered down taste.

radio_nowhere (1018) - Maryland, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Draft at Kirby’s Pub in Ocean City, MD served in a pint glass, clear orangy-amber color with off-white head. Aroma of heavy pie spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, little clove) and some pumpkin in the roast malt sweetness. Taste brings out more pumpkin earthiness and light caramel. Light body, moderate carbonation, lively with minimal roast sweet finish. On the lighter side of pumpkin beers.
