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.

Clear orange color. Aroma has pumpkin pie spice and some caramel sweetness. Flavor has a touch of alcohol, caramel, molasses and faint spice. A bit sweet like pie, just the way I like it.

SpringsLicker (3114) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 26, 2009
Pours clear medium gold with an average sized white head. Spicy aroma, but it lacks the Nutmeg, Allspice, Clove that I usually look for in Pumpkin Ales. Sweet, almost cloying with some alcohol in the flavor. The spices don’t show up here either.

pantanap (3349) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2009
22oz bottle from south loop binny’s... Pours semi-trasparent orange brown with a thin soapy white head... Ginger forward moreso than the other pumpkin ales with nutmeg... Flavors are heavy on Ginger and nutmeg flavors that quickly dries. Predominantly sweet. Somewhat prickly carbonated. Ok.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Bottle: This has the aroma you would expect from a high abv pumpkin spice beer, but smells a little metallic and sugary. The pour was hazy copper with a thin head. Flavor is somewhat bland actually.Hints of cherry come along with the spice, but really comes off with an unsatisfying flavor overall.

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2009
(Rating #1400) Bottle… October ’09 O-Town Throwdown… Clear yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The bouquet bestows autumn spices and a touch of real pumpkin. Medium to full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Sweet and spicy flavor and finish. Thanks to mcbackus for sharing the bottle!

Snojerk321 (2975) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 19, 2009
22oz bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber with a bubbly head that dissipated to nothing. Nose held some clove spice, nutmeg. A little more carbonation would have helped this beer out quite a bit, medium in body.
