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.

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.

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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5594) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2009
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-caramel color with a trace of a tan head. The aroma was light spices and fruits with a candied ginger presence dominating. The flavor was tart, spicy and a little bitter with a fruity presence and pervading candied ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. Medium body. Solid.

Onslow (1273) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Deep amber pour with a thin head. Aroma dominated with apple pie spice. Flavor is good - a really solid ale in the background but dominated by the spices. I’m not a big fan of spiced brews and prefer those with pumpkin in them – per Arcadia’s website, there is no pumpkin in here. I was stupid enough to think that it was a pumpkin ale when I bought it - no doubt the label graphic fooled me - but thankfully my taste buds are smarter than my brain.

This is probably as good as the spiced beer style gets, though not as good as a nicely spiced holiday porter or stout. What can I say? A good example o a style I find uncompelling - if you like the spice ale you’ll probably really like this. For me - it’s OK , but I won’t be buying it again.

Amber beer with a short lived off white head. Surprisingly subtle aroma, but what there was hinted of nutmeg and spice. Spicey beer with cinnamon, nutmeg, and pie spices. Some underlying caramel sweetness and almost orange juice citrus. Medium bodied. Okay pumpkin beer.

No notes on this beer. I had several beers where I was only able to kind of take small notes and therefore everyone suffers.
