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.

12 oz bottle from a Winter Beer 10 Pack purchased at World Market for me by my wife. C2 notched on label. Pour is hazed cheddar cheese orange with a couple of floaties and a thick 2 inch white head. Head is lasting. Some lacing. Aroma of pumpkin, cooking lettuce and candy sugar sweetness. Taste is cloves, pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg. The nutmeg is pronounced in the longish finish. Palate is on thin side of medium, drinkable with a high level of carbonation. Overall, a somewhat dull pumpkin beer, but clean and drinkable.

markwise (4646) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Pours a hazy brown-orange with an off-white head. Nose is malt, yeast, spices, and a bit heavy in allspice. A bit heavy on mouthfeel for a pumpkin ale. Flavor starts off with a peppery bite followed by citrus, orange peel, sour, and some barely noticeable pumpkin. Finish lingers with pepper and sour. Interesting, but most noticeable pumpkin flavor is only a memory that reoccurs after the beer is gone.

ClarkVV (4069) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Bottle at Sunset Grill, Fall 2008. Amber-copper appearance with a strong, light-beige head. Retention withstanding the spicing. Sweet and gooey in the nose, with vanilla, maple and brown sugar all coming on much stronger than the flavor could ever possibly hope to include. And while it dosent have the richness in flavor, the spicing isn’t terribly overdone, leaving some caramel and brown sugar in the background. A little bit of artificial or unfermented sweetness, it seems, with very little actual pumpkin flavor. Fairly substantial mouthfeel, thanks to the chewy malts and probably the wheat addition. Dosent bring anything new to the table as far as spiced autumn seasonals go. Drinkable, though and no major complaints about it.

12oz from Chevy Chase. Looked like another Fall Pumpkin Seasonal.. Pours orange with a 1 thin tan head. Nose is all spice and nutmeg with zero pie for me. Taste has pumpkin in it but overall is on the ehh side for me.

Bottle from State Line. Pour was orangey colored with some faint brown notes. Head as average, as was the head. These pumpkin beers are harder and harder to distinguish from the aroma, they run together: spices and pumpkin. The flavor in this one hits initially as pumpkin and light cinnamon, but finishes with lemony notes and iced tea in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel was moderate/standard, perhaps slightly less spicey zing in the finish than for many a pumpkin ale.

<b>9/27/2007</b>: Allspice and a trace of nutmeg dominate the aroma of . Its appearance is a clear Autumn-like color (amberish) with a thin, off-white crown. A good malty base has a layer of spice that sticks to the roof of the mouth and creates a film there. There is lots of cinnamon and nutmeg in the flavor, but the beer actually smells spicier than it tastes. It also has a medium-body and a powdery texture. This is really a spiced beer as no pumpkin is detectable in either the aroma or flavor. All summed up, it’s okay.

<i>12 fl. oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #66 for this beer.</i>

I’m a big fan of pumpkin beers, so this one had my attention. Poured orange with some sediment at the bottom, medium head. Aroma is in line with many others in the style, light with spices on top of medium malts and light hops. This beer did not have much flavor compared to others, but would probably fair quite well back-to back with some of the more commercially available pumpkin beers. Decent, but not one I’ll get again.

smooch (238) - Sylvania, Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2008
As pumpkin beers go, this isn’t noteworthy at all. I barely taste any spices and no pumpkin flavor. Good sort of soft and sticky mouthfeel. Tartness on the tail. I can drink it, but I wouldn’t go back for more.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - NOV 1, 2008
(Bottle from McKean and Charles) Pours fairly cloudy orange with two fingers of off-white head. Aroma mostly of spice with some lighter caramel maltiness. Mouthfeel medium hefty and fairly smooth. Patchy, broken lacing. Flavor of spice (nutmeg, cinnamon) overlaying some caramel and vanilla maltiness. Nothing exciting but not bad.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 1, 2008
Pours a hazy orange amber with a small forth of wispy white head. Aroma of lightly sweet caramel, nutmeg and pumpkin, with some citric tartness. Starts with decent body and sweet maltiness showing some light cinnamon spice before a drier, doughy pumpkin flesh finish with some light fruity tart character. An interesting spiced beer, but could be a little more assertive and balanced.
