Frog’s Hollow Double Pumpkin Ale

$9.99 from Arbor Place Beverage, Douglasville, GA, USA.
22 oz bottle, the usual Hoppin’ Frog presentation.
Pour has an attractive, deep orange color with good clarity, but a smallish and poorly retained head.
Nice combination of spices in the nose and the taste. The dominant flavor is a warmish, ginger. The ginger actually burns a little and is quite strong, with a little heat. The beer is plenty simple and reflects what one would expect from the style, but the ginger heat is definitely the feature that lingers, even giving a light burn in the chest on the way down.
A little alcohol warmth and even more ginger. The ginger mimics the alcohol warmth.
The beer is a little light in the body, but all in all I did enjoy it. You’ve really got to like the niche of pumpkin because without that you are going to find this difficult to cope with, but no more than any other in the style.
