    Pours a crystal clear deep reddish brown color with a huge fluffy tan head that slowly recedes. The aroma is of cinnamon and nutmeg mostly. Quite heavy spicy aroma obliterates any beer aromas from my perception. The taste has a bit of a caramel sweet malt flavor upfront before the gingerbread house flavor takes over and ruins this beer. The mouthfeel is medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet spice laden mouthfeel. I won't mince words here, this beer is horrible. Its over spiced and I couldn't finish my glass.

    Howsabout a swift kick o cinnamon and ginger to your olfactory senses? That's this beer in a nutshell. Nice base beer, smooth body, malty backbone, warming. The spices used were nice, though bordering on being overly aggressive, especially in the nose...but not quite. I enjoyed this, and would get again but wouldn't go out of my way.

    I did not like this. Balance was way off, overly sweet....too much pumpkin and other spices. This is an example of why I do not like pumpkin beers, or very hard to find one that works. This was being "cleared" for $3.99, when all of the other Hoppin' Frogs that I've seen are $8-$15....thought something may be fishy. The basic backbone of this ale is decent, but IMO the other stuff added murders the brew. Not something I would care to try again, nor would I recommend.

    A brown-mahogany colored beer with a small foamy textured light brown head. There wasn't much hang time on the head. Settles into a thin ringlet. The prifile on this one os cloves and cinnamon. As it warms the spices ease in intensity. But at first I wasn't sure I was going to continue drinking this medium bodied, woodsy beer

    Aroma has a strong and pleasant spicy undertone, quite different from any other beer I have sampled, even other winter warmers and spiced ales. There is plenty of cinnamon with hints of cloves and nutmeg, as well as subtle malty and woody undertones. It comes out of the bottle a dark, mostly transparent reddish mahogany with a decent light tan head. Flavor is malty with a firm overtone of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg - and maybe some horehound as well. There is a bit of sharp candy sweetness and just a whisper of raw wood. Texture is sharp, crisp and fizzy, leaving behind a tingly, spicy finish. Happy Holidays!

    Pours a beautiful mahogany-brown color with a large and lasting light brown head followed by strings of bubbly lacing. Aromatic spices and sweet malts penetrate the air above the glass. Nutmeg, ginger and some rather aggressive cinnamon. Smells like a freshly baked gingerbread man cookie. A very thick malt body backs up the spices, heavy malt seems to be the Frog's signature attribute. Warming with a soft creaminess, it drinks fairly easily and the spices quickly fade in the aftertaste. Full flavored and balanced which is key for this style. You can taste that real spices were used and are well proportioned. The hot cinnamon steps forward after the other spices have gone and really shines in the overall flavor profile. Very impressed by how much I enjoyed this beer in a style I rarely get excited about these days.
