Harpoon Brewery – UFO Pumpkin (2013)

28 Sep

NicAA: Hazy and flocculent orange with fast fading head. Yeasty aroma with sweet pumpkin and a touch of fall spice. 8/10

NicTM: Light body, med carb. Flowery house yeast leads to pumpkin, fast chased by nutmeg, cinnamon and a dash of clove. 8/10

NicP: Smooth and tasty pumpkin here. Pretty much spot on amount for this mix. 5p

NicO: Best as draft. Unfiltered pumpkin beer often wins at retaining flavor, which is true here: farmy, rough, charming.84/100

AlexAA: very hazed marigold w/ fluffy 1/4 inch head – cinnamon, slight cloves, and pumpkin perfume on this one 7/10

AlexTM: heavy pumpkin on a loaf of brown sugar and molasses – cinnamon cuts thru unfiltered density and barley. 8/10

AlexP: lots of fresh pumpkin – the meat is heavily sweetened malt combo but spicing adds depth. 6P

AlexO: This is Wolaver’s older sister who’s wearing too much make-up – pretty pumpkin underneath, but too much sweet. 81/100
