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.

Bottle thanks to Brigadier: Pours a transparent deep orange with a thin, short-lived white head. Has a nicely spice cinnamon and pumpkin nose with some rich, sweet caramel toffee undertones. Starts with good fullness and sweet toasty caramel malty sweetness with a good balance of ginger and nutmeg with a touch of pumpkin flavor, but nowhere near as much as Southern Tier’s Pumking. Still a pretty flavorful and complex brew.

holdenn (2088) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2009
22oz bottle from Binny’s. Pours a clear orange with a creamy beige head. That’s some pumpkin spice in the nose. Fake pumpkin filling, cinnamon, clove, and brown sugar with a little citrus. Flavors are similar and not bad at first but it quickly becomes too sweet and tough to drink. If you’re into pumpkin coffee drinks or other manufactured pumpkin themed flavors you might really enjoy this. But this is otherwise tough to finish.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 18, 2009
Bomber. Pours clear dark gold with very little head. The nose is cloves, cinnamon and pumpkin. The taste is pumpkin, brown sugar and nutmeg. Medium, fairly still mouthfeel with a little prickle. Decent pumpkin brew.

mabel (7059) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2009
[2576-20091031] 22floz bottle. Mild cleaner fluid aroma has lots of spices. Clear, medium orange body with a quick foamy white head. Flavour has a lot of crust spice and some pumpkin fruit notes. Medium body. Interesting but average for a pumpkin.

TheEpeeist (3488) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2009
22 oz bottle. Clear orange with a brief white head leaving traces. Nose is cinnamon, nutmeg, apple juice, toffee and ginger. Medium body with a yeasty tang. Taste is honey, spices and banana with ginger becoming dominant. Finishes with bitter spices and alcohol. I’m not getting any pumpkin but still interesting. More a spiced tripel.

Dogbrick (9156) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 8, 2009
This brew is a clear golden orange color with a medium bone white head that recedes steadily. Sticky rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, pumpkin and nutmeg. Full, smooth body with flavors of roasted malt, pumpkin spices and caramel. More muted pumpkin character than I was expecting all in all. The finish is sweet clove and pumpkin with a malty aftertaste. Above average overall.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Likely the best pumpkin ale I’ve had to date, absolutely spot on. Warm, gentle aroma of bakers spices, roasted pumpkin and caramelized brown sugar. The pumpkin and spices smell fresh and authentic. Cloudy amber-orange body producing a huge, frothy head and thick, heavy lacing. The malt body is what makes this one stand out, it’s big and hefty...full bodied is an understatement. Subtly sweet with the right amount of spice, well blended all around. Flavor contains all of the good attributes of a standard pumpkin ale, but the thick luscious malts are what propels this forward. Real pumpkin flavor with a roasted nuttiness, lots of bread and toffee influences.

Skyview (5283) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Receiving 22-oz bomber via trade with shigadeyo. Pours a clear orange amber colored brew with an average off-white/beige head that has some nice lacing and a creamy top. Aroma of nutmeg spice, a hint of caramel malt, pumpkin pie filling and a hint of ginger. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of pumpkin, nutmeg, a hint of clove and some cinnamon. Finish has a lingering nutmeg aftertaste with some pumpkin character.

jsquire (3689) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Orange amber color out of the bottle with almost no head. Big spicey nose with some hairspray. Big spicey cinnimon, clove, ginger and pumpkin pie spice all over enough of a malty backbone to work. A well balanced and flavorful pumpkin spice beer.
