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.

Bottle. Had this in the fall and never got around to rating it. I guess it wasn’t that good. Aroma was spices, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Flavor was a lot of the same. There are a few better pumpkin beers out there. Although most pumpkin beers aren’t all that great. Poured an orange color no head. Average beer at best.

jcr (2386) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Draft. Ginger Man, NYC. Deep amber body with a creamy, off-white head. The aroma is spicy as one would expect with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Pumpkin spice tastes with notes of caramel. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Seems overly spiced just like so many other pumpkin beers.

Orange hazy pour creamy layer of off white head and some lacing aroma of mostly nutmeg and allspice with cinnamon malty taste with nutmeg and cinnamon light dry bitter finish an average pumpkin looks better than it tastes more like pumpkin spice beer

Translucent dark amber color. Thick, creamy, sandy colored head. Heavily carbonated. Had to pause after pouring half of this and wait a couple of minutes for the massive head to diminish before pouring the rest of the bottle. Excellent retention and great lacing. The allspice and nutmeg dominate the nose. Very nice level of sweet underlying malt smell. Light yeasty notes. The taste is totally sweet-malt based with spicy pumpkin flavors. Once again the allspice and nutmeg dominate, but the cinammon makes a light showing on the back end. Nice caramely edge to this one. Medium bodied, creamy and smooth make this feel very nice. An easy to drink (and enjoy) festive ale here. A good representation of the style.

Arcadia Jaw-Jacker, a pumpkin spiced ale but no pumpkin - Pours an orangey-amber with off white head that dissipates to a rim of lacing fairly quickly. Overwhelming cinnamon aroma, which features strongly in the flavour profile but nutmeg and malt bread are quite discernible too. Finishes with some nice citrus hops. Mouthfeel is good, but this beer while having the basics, just doesn’t have unity.

17thfloor (2439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a clear glowing dark reddish orange with a medium foamy fluffy cream colored head. Aroma of pumpkin pie spices, nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin, fairly malty, some burnt hair? Flavor is a bit plasticy, hair-spray, bitter pumpkin, chalky, bitter, spices without anything to back it up. Medium bodied, corse tightly packed carbonation bubbles, thin feeling.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2009
Iced tea colored pour with a small off-white head. The aroma is heavy on the pumpkin, but with more of a fresh pumpkin quality than baked. Heavy pie spice notes are balanced with some baked apple, toasted almond, and banana bread. The flavor is dry, doughy malts with some baked apple and pumpkin, strong allspice and cinnamon with hints of licorice and some lingering piny hop bitterness. There is a dry, cheweyness to the body with plentiful carbonation.

I was very unimpressed with this beer. It came it a variety pack and thought it might be a nice surprise. I was wrong. The beer really missed the mark.

@Freaktoberfest, pours light orange with a small white head, aroma of clove, mint, lavender and some malt in between, flavors of apple with some acidity and spiced with cinnamon & lavender, quite water. Not my style
