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.

On tap at Beer Temple. Pours a clear orange with a tan head that starts at the edges and dissipates completely. Aroma has lots of spice and a bit of pumpkin with a bread backing. Flavor has lots of spice and pumpkin with sweet grains and more pumpkin coming through in the finish.

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

jmgreenuk (4230) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2013
Tap at Local Option, Chicago. Poured a cloudy amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is big pumpkin! The flavour is neutral veggie with a pumpkin veggie watery palate. I’m running out of things to say about this but maybe Hoppin Frog need to stop brewing pumpkin ales but I’m biased as I don’t care much for pumpkins.

I am not a pumpkin fan so I try to rate based on style of beer. Bottle share. Small snifter. Poured an orange copper with a thin white head. Really smelled like a pumpkin pie with nutmeg, all spice, and even dough. The taste was similar. It was a little thinner than I thought it would be. Light body. Tasted like it smelled. A little boozy tasting. Finishes with the all spice really coming through.

kchampagne (105) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Poured this one from a bomber. Appearance is a cloudy copper with a bubbly white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma isn’t as strong as many other pumpkin beers, but that’s not necessarily a bad characteristic. Flavor is lighter than I anticipated given its name; however, it is well balanced with notes of cinnamon and allspice. This is a quality beer and is very drinkable.

Scubatrip (596) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2013
From the bottle, pours a semi hazy orange with a thin white head. Fragrant aroma with notes of cinnamon, pumpkin pie, floral hops. Thick with flavors of a pumpkin pie with whip cream. Poor rating here, no doubt. But a very good pumpkin beer.

The beer pours with a clear orange, straw color, had almost no head or lacing at all. The beer scent has a heavy nutmeg and pumpkin spice scent, but not much of actual pumpkin at the spices over power the smell. The taste is average as you tastes the spices first, then fades into a pumpkin flavor that is okay. The mouthfeel is average as the beer was poorly carbonated but the mouth leaves you interestingly dry and spicey. Overall, an average pumpkin ale that was over spiced in my opinion and not enough pumpkin flavor.
