COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There’s a place just south they call Frog’s Hollow, brewin’ pumpkin ale in Fall, and they only speak in whispers of the name. There’s a lady they say who has the secret, of spices picked just right. With a crying shout, she’ll knock it out, and hand you the Frog’s delight.

This pours a golden amber color with a slight bit of carbonation. The aroma is rich with pumpkin and spices. The flavor has lots pumpkin too it and not as much spices as the aroma would lead you to believe. The flavor is decently boozy and sweet. There are a few spices that linger in the after taste. Interesting and not like many other pumpkin beers on the market.

It is an overall mellow pumpkin ale with not a lot of spice, which disappointed me. There was not much to it and taste worse than cheaper options

Draft at Eulogy. Cloudy orange amber pour. Spicy blonde caramel. The standard spices for most pumpkin beers. Not particularly tasting in it any pumpkin itself. I’ve had worse but I’m just not that impressed here.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer & Beyond, Tel Aviv. Clear light copper with small beige head. Sweet aroma, clove, syrupy, bubblegum. Sweet bubblegum flavor, clove, fruity (pear, apricot), yeasty, quite alcoholic, spicy, some herbs. Light carbonation, medium-bodied.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear mahogany brown color, tiny beads on the rim, no lace. Taste behaves like Welch’s Grape Juice - smooth taste of pumpkin cut with hops midway through, all moving like water to a quiet finish. This can’t be what Hoppin Frog intended. It pours with carbonation, but it all disappears as quickly as the head on a Coke. Hard to figure, isn’t bad, isn’t interesting.

Beergaard (124) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2014
My first Pumpkin ale since it is not something we see alot in Denmark, so it’s quite hard to make comparisons. Very interesting and surprisingly spicy though. I liked this alot but the only thing that bothers me about this beer, and probably most other pumpkin ales, is that the pumpkin does not actually play any important role tastewise. Quite nice after all.

MayumiH (175) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2014
Bottle at home. Sweetened pumpkin is real strong in this one, with a lot of spice such as cloves, star anises and nutmeg. Im not sure all the flavours are well balanced to be honest.
