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.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Bottle number three of a pumpkin ale side by side tasting. Very light aroma of pumpkin pie. This one was a nice middle man of the previously rated Pumpking and Imperial Pumpkin...This one had both spices and pumpkin, but very lightly done. There was some sort of funk on the back end. A sour funky finish that kind of turned this one for me. Kept this one from being my number one. Nicely done but I think I like mine sweeter.

HonkeyBra (3280) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Clear orange-amber pour with very thin white head that dissipates. Aroma of nutmeg, all spice, cinnamon, pie crust. Flavor is much more spice than pumpkin, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Lots of cinnamon and nutmeg, and light creaminess. Some brown sugar. Can’t taste any alcohol at all. Really one of the better pumpkin beers available.

Cornfield (5460) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Bomber from Kenwood Liquors in Homer Glen, Illinois: It poured a clear amber/copper body with a tall white head but curiously left much lace. The aroma has a worty (no pun intended)sweetness blanketed by a huge amount of pie spices - nut meg, allspice, cinnamon, and dark brown sugar. I didn’t catch any pumpkin, or in the flavor, either. The taste was much like the aroma with a bit of caramel added. The big ABV didn’t really show itself throughout. Looks like we’ll be needing an Imperial Spice/Herb/Vegetable category soon.

Much like Christmas decorations and back to school supplies pumpkin beers seem to be coming out earlier and earlier every year. I was a bit surprised to see this on the shelf at the start of September. Regardless I picked up a bottle at $7.99 thinking it could be a nice interpretation of the seasonal style. Overall I would say it is especially if you are a fan of pumpkin beers with more sweetness than spice.

Aroma / Appearance - The short lived cream head fades into the body which takes on a mandarin orange hue under the daylight. Squash, cinnamon, and brown sugar smell like an appetizer fresh from the oven. Fairly balanced the alcohol takes a back seat most of the time.

Flavor / Palate - The fluid mix of orange creamsicle, brown sugar, and squash is a mishmash of fall and summer. Moist throughout it soaks into every corner of the throat. On par with many other local/regional pumpkin offerings this one is a nice option for those wanting a change of pace.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Bottle. Body is a transparent light orang with a small white head and aromas that are thick with pie spices and a touch of pumpkin. Flavor is pretty light and airy, but both the pumpkin pie flavors and alcohol presence are there. It’s not watery, it is just crisp and refreshing. This is pretty good and a fairly unique take on pumpkin beers that usually border on heavy and cloying.

fiver29 (1025) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Bottle pours clear pumpkin orange with white head that whisps away to nothing right away. Aroma is nutmeg, clove, pumpkin, and with a touch of sugar. Luscious mouthfeel with a concentration of flavors. Flavor follows the nose exactly. Finishes with a slight sweetness. Good beer. Just didn’t completely blow me away. I would say this is an above average pumpkin ale compared to other pumpkin ales I’ve had. I was also surprised how well hidden the ABV was considering its 8.4%. Its not really noticeable at all.

monkeychugg55 (838) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Pours a headless (ha ha) orange amber with lots of carbonation bubbles. Has a nice aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, etc., the usual pumpkin spices, with a little bit of sweet caramel malt. The flavor is sweet and spiced, with a little bit of pumpkin. This is medium bodied and has a little more carbonation than I had expected. A little bit of alcohol an the finish. Really sweet though. Not bad, but nothing amazing.

ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Bottle. Pours a rich coppery/pumpkin color with a small white head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger. Flavor is light on the spice, nutmeg, clove, ginger, little heavier on the roasted pumpkin. Palate is a nice slick medium body, medium carbonation, finished with a nice balance between dry/sweet, and lightly spicy. A solid pumkin brew. Agree with the other rating that the spicy aroma does not really punch through in the flavor, they’re more of a side note, which I like, and you get more of the malty pumpkin. No real alcohol presence for 8.4%

Cliff (399) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Bomber, pours a clear light amber with a thin white head. The aroma is a spice explosion, ginger, clove, cinammon and nutmeg, just like it says on the bottle. I was assuming the taste would be just as spicy, but it wasn’t, very restrained with a strong roasted pumpkin flavor. The spices are in the background. Smooth mouthfeel and an overall nice pumpkin beer.
