COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This spiced amber-wheat ale is our celebration of the arrival of Autumn. Using the finest malted barley and a small amount of wheat for mouthfeel, Jaw-Jacker displays a brilliant orange-amber color, despite the absence of pumpkin in the recipe. The addition of cinnamon, all-spice and nutmeg (in the exact proportions of a family pumpkin pie recipe) creates a refreshingly spicy, season brew.

Poured into a pint glass. 3.0 A: Moderately hazed medium orange color. Two fingers of frothy/creamy beige head. Retention is a touch below average and a short ring of lacing is left. 3.25 S: Pumpkin spices featuring cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice. Caramel maltiness with toastiness underneath. It doesnít have much of an actual pumpkin component - it seems spice heavy. Still, itís pleasant. 3.0 T: Taste is like the nose. Itís spice heavy without a pumpkin backbone. Toasty and caramel malts. 2.75 M: Light to lighter medium body. Watery feel. Good moderate carbonation. Lacking creaminess. 2.75 D: Itís not horrible, but itís one of the weaker pumpkin beers Iíve had this year. ★ 695 characters DavoleBomb, Dec 10, 2015

Pours pumpkin orange with a thin white head. Cinnamon and nutmeg but not much in the way of pumpkin. Not bad but itís easy to find better pumpkins.

bottle - Pours slightly hazy orange and smells of pumpkin pie spices, which of course is the point. The flavor is fairly sweet with nutmeg and cinnamon noticeable but not overly strong. Light to medium bodied. Average or a little better overall.

DATE TASTED: October 22, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Schneider Wiesen Edel-Weisse pokal... OCCASION: another good Thursday ends with some beer... APPEARANCE: lazy, hazy, off-white head that settles to a consistent halo; body is an orange-amber, equally hazy body with slight effervescence--a fitting, Autumnal view... AROMA: light gingerbread, nutmeg and pumpkin spices allure the nostrils; a wheaty clove spice... PALATE: thin, wheaty in consistency; smooth and easy drinking--a bit too easy?... TASTE: a mellow, blunted impact that belies the aroma; nutmeg and pumpkin spices are clearest, with cinnamon and allspice or pepper developing the profile into a larger-than-expected flavor experience; the lightness of body plays out in the flavor, allowing for a swift sipping and a reasonably enjoyable quality... OVERALL: not sure how to take this one at first, with its lightness exhibiting a wheat beer, its ABV upwards of an ale, and a taste that blend the two... intriguing enough to encourage another bottle--a possibility, but not a necessity...

aroma of a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste is a nice cinnamon sugar with a bit of a spice aftertaste. One of the better pumpkin beers.

jsporrer (526) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Pours a clear orangish brown in color. A little bit of spice in the aroma but not overpowering. Taste is a little thin with some fall spice flavors but nothing out of the ordinary. Somewhat disappointing.

Itís nutmeg and water. Thatís it. The aroma fools you. High Aroma that is spiced and warm. The flavor was weak. It was low at first, water and ale had no taste. Then you get a nutmeg taste, thatís it. Like you licked the spoon or something. Palate is watery. Color is decent. Tap
