Tailgate day. Yay.
Recognizing fall with a pumpkin beer, the UFO Pumpkin from Harpoon. Secret fact about me: I really don't enjoy many pumpkin beers. I can drink a few at the start of fall, but they just don't speak to me. By the time I get around to thinking a pumpkin beer might be delicious (looking at you, Thanksgiving), they're gone from the shelves. And too many have what I consider to be pumpkin pie filling as their main flavor; somewhat artificial, and way too sweet.
This one pours a hazy light amber color with a lingering white head. Aromas of pumpkin and nutmeg (shocking), and flavors of.... pumpkin and nutmeg (still shocking). It's light and drinkable, and to their credit this beer has a authentic flavor instead of that over the top fake sweetness thing I abhor. Top pumpkin beer ever? Not sure, because I've sampled about 4% of the beers out there, but I'm guessing there are others that might be more my style.
Thing to Think About Today:
Yes, I've shared this song before. But not the live version, with Ylvis backed up by The Roots! Seriously, watch this. Please. Please?
