After a long weekend for sports in Philadelphia, I looked forward to sitting down this evening with a beer. One of the pumpkin beers I grabbed from the Bottle Shop was Harpoon’s UFO Pumpkin.
I’m a fan of Harpoon’s other UFO (UnFiltered Offerings) beers, so I was excited to try the Pumpkin. It poured a very pretty hazy orange-amber color, and is only mildly sweet and spicy. It is very different from the very sweet Imperial Pumpking by Southern Tier. It smells a little sweeter than it tastes, but is a nice, drinkable pumpkin beer. I could definitely see having a few of these in one sitting without getting overwhelmed by pumpkin.
