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 is a nice pumpkin ale. If I have any criticism, its that its too sweet, but the spicing is spot on and the pumpkin has a nice fresh quality.

Erzengel (2327) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 2, 2013
Brown-orange in the glass with nearly no head. Smell very interesting spicy. The beer starts very sweet-alcoholic, bitter, lots of spices like a German Underberg. And Gingerbread. The mainpart is great spicy, a nice mixture between Spekulatius, Printen and Underberg. But where’s the pumpkin? probably it’s the aroma till the end, when it gets smoother and very nicely balanced hopped. The aftertaste is long, great spicy, great beer!

Pours sunset orange with a small white foam. Smells of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and clove. Taste is pumpkin, spices, and mild sweetness. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Hoppin’ Frog Frog’s Hollow Double Pumpkin Ale finishes with a soft pumpkin kiss.

Lukaduke (1998) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Bottle thanks to Jstax ! Pours a copper color with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose is cinnamon, spice, pumpkin and even a bit baked apple. The palate follows the nose and taste pretty much like cinnamon flavored motts apple sauce with some pumpkin flesh to round it out. Sweet malts back up the flavors... I think I have come to the conclusion that im just not a big fan of pumpkin style beers in general

AWISLguy (1160) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Bomber from Discount in Waukesha. Pours a golden orange with almost no head. Aroma has - duh - pumpkin. Heavy ginger and cinnamon, with allspice. Smells like gingerbread mixed into pumpkin pie. Taste is of sweet and tangy ginger, some caramel, some other spices. Light to medium bodied and sticky. Finishes sweet and spicy. If you are looking for a normal pumpkin brew opposed to a barrel aged one, this is recommended. Solid and tasty.

veel zoeter dan de rest, haast appelcider. Ruikt een beetje medicinaal maar de smaak is heerlijk. Waarschijnlijk de beste voor een zomerdag. Prachtige amberkleur maar wel troebel
