Harpoon UFO Pumpkin ....

Today's beer is a UFO Pumpkin, Unfiltered Pumpkin Ale, from Harpoon Brewery.  Twelve ounce bottle.  Their web site shows 5.9% ABV and 20 IBUs.

This beer poured with a thin, bone colored head.  Beer color is an orange-ish yellow.  It is hazy, with a good amount of fine to small sediment.  I mostly notice spices in the aroma, but also some pumpkin and fruit.  The pumpkin is pretty mild.  The taste is malty, with a stronger note of pumpkin than the aroma.  There is also a good amount of pumpkin pie spices, especially some cinnamon.  Carbonation is a little higher.  Medium in strength.  The aftertaste  is a little grassy with some spice.
