Nothing special about this one, I actually thought it could have easily been replaced by a Budweiser. Blame it on the other beer I was trying at the tavern but this was least favorite out of the 5 they gave me. DiarmaidBHK (4907) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2011
A big ole glass of Meh! Pours light yellow without a lot of aroma. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Not a lot of taste. Can I stop writing now? kassner (1659) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2010
This was the best on tap at the time, unique early notes of spices, and finishes fine. A little thin in flavor but that was atrend for all jrob21 (3688) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 30, 2008
Poured a pale golden color that was a bit cloudy with some decent white head. The wheat addition ends up overpowering this beer and drowns out any hop profile that may be there. Gives a bit of spicy aroma and has a decent body.

Clear golden color, perhaps just the tiniest bit cloudy, but very light. A good wheat beer taste but a bit on the thin/weak side. There are better ones out there, this one is good but not great. Foxbush (2028) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2006
This was brought to the beach in a growler. The color was light and the flavor was thin. It just wasn’t the beach of the beach. The Marzhon lager was far superior. The growler is an excellent way to enjoy beer. There is some lemon flavor. I am just not a big fan of wheat beers. The beach was super!!!! TheBeerLover (1027) - DC Metro Area, USA - JAN 25, 2006
Barking Frog is a domestic version of a Kolsh styled
beer, and its a good
one. Coming in a little high in abv at 5.5%, and a bit bolder in flavor than real kolsch, this beer
pours to a slightly hazy, pale blonde color, with a
nice bubbly white head that faded, and a moderate, to
soft amount of carbonation. The nose was very delicate
with some subtle jammy/fruity estery aromas, a touch
of pale malt aroma, and just a hint of sulfur. The
palate was soft, with some nice subtle pale malt
flavors paired with some jammy estery fruit flavors.
Barking Frog ale finishes with more delicate pale malt
and estery fruit up front, and ends with a pleasing,
slightly grassy hop bitterness.
This was a well done domestic version of Kolsh, a
delicate, fruity ale that is a specialty beer only
found in and around Koln(Cologne) Germany. A little "big" for the style, but a tasty, drinkable beer. This is
perfect beer to sit and relax with over some good

Well-balanced with hints of butterscotch, citrus fruit and straw in the aroma and flavor. Light, refreshing and fizzy. Too watery, though. Not much to it. MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - MAR 14, 2004
Cask. Translucent gold. Zero head. Nose a bit sour, not much there. Horrid palate, desperately needs carbonation. Bit of spice, a little banana, but not a whole lot going on. If ever a beer stood up and screamed "DO NOT SERVE ME AS A CASK BEER" this is it.
