Poured to a nonic glass.

A: The body is copper coloured with a non-existent head. I've tried to pour hardly to create a head but no it showed no retention at all. No lacing either.
S: The aroma reminds me clearly of my mom's pumpkin sweet. Nothing else is present.
T: The taste is composed by the sweetness of malts connecting with the tons of pumpkin present here. I find the taste to be very 'in your face' since there's nothing else I can find here. But either way, it's a good taste profile.
M: The body is medium to medium low. Low carbonation. The bitterness in the after taste is mildly pleasing for a sweet beer.
O: It's the first pumpkin ale I drink that's been bottled. Only tried this style on draft. Kinda liking this.

First taste was a great mix of pumpkin and spice but the whiskey after taste was too much for me.

AROMA and TASTE have notes of cinnamon and apples. Whiskey aftertaste. One of the better pumpkin beers I've had, though hard to find. Did not make it for the 2015 tasting.

Dark gold with a thin fizzy head that rapidly dies off.

Lots of fresh pumpkin pie filling envelopes the nose, with a little allspice and bready wet crust rounding it out.

Tons of soft, fresh pumpkin jumps forward in taste, and I'm also tasting pear and a little wheat bread. Some spice is present, but not really too much. For those that have had Frog's Christmas beer, you know what a massive spice bomb they can concoct, so the subtlety is a surprise.

Frog's Hollow has a medium body, and is quite crisp but frothy.

My favorite craft beer. Not just because it is local. Only thing close to the flavor is Southern Tier's Pumking in my experience. Not subtle, got kick and its great for food recipes. Cooks down well. Besides the taste, texture, color, its top notch.
