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.

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.

Pours a clear brown beer with a small beige fine foamy head. Smells spicy, nutmeg, clove, a very fine citrus hint as well. Tastes spicy and malty, slightly sweet. Leaves a spicy palate. Tastes non alcoholic, low saturation.

Bottle split at the Cotteridge Convention, thanks to my wing of a man, 24/01/15. Very lightly hazed golden amber with a decent off white covering. Nose is pumpkin pie, light caramel, nutmeg, mixed spice, candied fruit rinds. Taste comprises more pumpkin pie, fleshy fruits, spicerack, more nutmeg, candied orange peel, vanilla. Medium + body, fine carbonation, sweet licks in the close. Solid pumpkinator.

Scopey (7867) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle at the Cotteridge Convention thanks to The Wingman. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is rich, bitter-sweet, pumpkin, clove rock, juicy pumpkin and spice. The taste is bitter-sweet, juicy, spice, pumpkin pie, some bitterness, gingerbread, earth, clove rock and light alcohol. Medium+ body and moderate carbonation. Well rounded bitter-sweet balance. Took me by surprise this one. Works for me!

24th Jan 2015: cheers Wingman for bringing this to the Cotteridge Wine ’happening’. Not too sure I am into pumpkins or their addition to beer. Anyway, this poured an orange hue with no head to talk of and had a sweet spicy pumpkin aroma and taste, just a bit weird for me. To be fair I have not majored on pumpkin beers so I’m far from experienced in their flavours, so this might be the best out there for all I know. Just not for me though.

Bottle share. Cotteridge Beano. Hazy gold. Film of white head. Spicy. It’s a pumpkin beer... Fairly dry. Ok. Not my cup of tea.
