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.

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 (9954) - 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 (2960) - 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.

Narnad (1486) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2009
Pours a hazy copper color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is a mixture nutmeg, light cinnamon, light pumpkin fruit, light caramel and a light all spice at the end. Flavor is sweet overall, some pumpkin fruitiness, light cinnamon, some allspice, lots of nutmeg and light caramel. Heavier body, some alcohol flavor and heat, light body. Overall a decent pumpkin flavor which is not too overpowering.

Golden orange color with a small white head. Aroma of cinnamon, pumpkin and other spices. Flavor of spices and pumpkin. Spice flavors are stronger than the pumpkin. Ok.

This was enjoyable but there are plenty of other pumpkin beers out there I would rather have. Color was just what I wanted in a golden dark brown with nice carbonation. Aroma nice also with a lot of spice that really tells you you’re heading for pumpkin land. The flavor is what I did not enjoy as much. While the spice and pumpkin where there, it was something about the combination of flavors and body that were off and led to a less than optimal experience. Couldn’t say exactly what it was but it just seemed a bit off to me. Again, spices and pumpkin is there, just not in the right combination for me.
