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.

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. Iím not a big fan of spiced brews and prefer those with pumpkin in them Ė per Arcadiaís 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 youíll probably really like this. For me - itís OK , but I wonít 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.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2009 ~ Purchased a 6-pack from Big Z Beverage in Huntington, NY. Pours a hazy orange color with a creamy white head. Cooler temperatures, leaves changing colors, and homemade pumpkin pies are just a few of the things that come to mind when I take a whiff of this beer. Aromas are of pumpkin spices, and it tastes pretty much the way it smells. This was satisfying, and I will have no problems finishing off the other bottles. ~

Pours a clear amber color with no head. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, and caramel. Good nose! Flavor of allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg with hints of citrus and pumpkin. Not bad for the style.

Sampled at Famous Liquors Fall /Oktoberfest Tasting in Lombard, IL.. Poured a cloudy, gold/amber with modest off white foam and lacing. The aroma was initially floral and pie spices with nutmeg being the most notable. The flavor followed with some mellow malt, but finished slightly astrigent.

Cinnamon comes alive as soon as you pop the top! Has a nice pumpkin pie color to it. Thatís a fall spice warmer in the glass. Iím getting actual pumpkin pie on the aftertaste. Nutmeg comes through nice. If youíre a fan of nutmeg, this is for you. Of pumpkin ales, this one is a nice one.

Pumpkin spice, nutmeg on the nose, not quite sweet. Typical orange color, a little fizzy, white head. Wierd earthy, spicy flavor, nutmeg, allspice. The finish is mainly spices, not much cinnamon or sugar. Medium mouthfeel. Not bad, far from the best.

Pours out a clear orange with a small white head that quickly settles around the edge of the glass. Spices maintain a presence in the aroma but arenít overwhelming. The nutmeg really comes out in the flavor and the spices finish it off. One of the better pumpkin ales Iíve had.

BPW #27 Served on tap at Arcadia Brewing Company. Appearance is a rich amber hue. Flavors and aromas are heavy with pumking spice, nutmeg and cinnamon predominantly. This is a nice fall beer that doesnít taste muddle like some. The spices come through clearly and are not over done and they ride on a nice crisp mouth.
