A fall beer that is not quite as intense and pumpkiny as your typical fall beer (Pumking). If you don't like the sweetness of Pumking, this would be a good choice for you
Apearance - deep orange color with about 1/4" head that dissipates quikcly
Smell - hints of cinnamon, clove but not too stong
Taste - not as sweet as other pumpkin beers which make it alittle more drinkable. I like a little more sweetness if I am drinking a pumpkin beer.
Overall - Good beer that I will not hesitate to drink again. Not overly sweet.

Pours straight orange, clear, very nice but lacks any head to speak of, there's no retention, and no lacing, so a little disappointed with the appearance. Smell is toffee, buttery crackers, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Taste is fantastic. Sweetness initially, which fades into flavor..Buttery cracker crust, pumpkin, nutmeg, allspice, a bit of spice from clove and ginger. A little more sweetness squeaks through here and there to add to the complexity. Very nice, delicious. Firm, creamy, medium mouthfeel. Alcohol is noticeable, but in a good way, in that it lets you know your drinking an imperial ale and not eating grandma's state fair blue ribbon pumpkin pie. Well balanced, and finish isn't cloying at all, its sweet at times, but you wouldn't describe Frog's Hollow Double Pumpkin as 'sweet', and that's what makes it extra good, and hence, this bad boy is right up there and maybe surpassing my all time favorite Pumking.

A: Pours a crystal clear medium orange to copper in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a quarter finger tall fizzy off-white head that quickly reduces to a small patch of extremely thin film and a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of pumpkin and traditional pumpkin pie spices - nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice.

T: This pumpkin beer is not sweet which is a pleasant surprise - there is a good strong flavor of pumpkin and spices, about evenly split. There is a light amount of bitterness and a bit of ginger spiciness.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Some light amounts of alcohol heat in the finish.

O: The alcohol is this beer is hidden in the taste but there is a light presence in the mouthfeel - this is an enjoyable beer but definitely not sessionable due to the high ABV. I enjoy the fact that while I pumpkin beer, it is not overly sweet.
