Brew Info:
  • Brewery: Uinta Brewing Company (Salt Lake City, Utah)
  • Website:
  • Brew: Punk'n Harvest Pumpkin Ale
  • Style: Pumpkin Ale
  • Serving: 12 ounce can
  • ABV: 5.0%
  • IBUs: 10
  • Ingredients: Brewed with fresh roasted pumpkin and seasonal spices
  • Pour: Cloudy golden-amber with a thin, off-white head that leaves a soft ring around the edges.
  • Nose: The nose is full of vege and spice notes with more subtle malts and hops.  There are aromas of pumpkin pie mix, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, allspice, vanilla, and pumpkin bread.
  • Taste: The flavor, like the nose is chalk full of spices (cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice), hints of brown sugar, vanilla, and pumpkin!
  • Mouthfeel: Light-bodied with moderate carbonation, the mouthfeel is fairly smooth, crisp, and refreshing with a spicy, slightly dry finish that leaves some nice, lingering nutmeg notes and a slight bitterness.
Overall pairing: I know all you punks out there think you need to drink PBR to be punk, but guess what?  PBR is made with GMO corn and rice and is owned by TSG Consumer Partners, one of the largest private equity firms in America!  Yeah, you are so punk!  ;)  Here's an idea, try a local, artisan beer with actual flavor and craftsmanship!  And those spicy, pumpkin flavors go great with the horror punk fun of Danzig and the boys!
