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. One of the better tasting Halloween seasonal beers I’ve come across. All of the usual spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, clove) are definitely noticeable, but not overpowering.

Bottle . A clear deep copper color body with a two finger off white foamy head . Aroma is of sweet roasted barley and pumpkin pie , nice amount of cinnamon and other spices with just a hint of baked apple . Flavor is lightly sweet with some nice cinnamon , and nutmeg notes , a little brown bread . A light bitterness and citrus finish from the hops . Medium body , smooth mouthfeel . A good drinker for a style that is not my favorite .

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2013 A nice seasonal effort, a little on the sweet side, spice are sufficiently prevelant but not as big as in Sreamin Pumpkin, but well balance. Light copper color with no head Sept 2013 Bottle, not the same with a distinct iron taste underneath.

Pours a cloudy dark orange color with small amount of foamy white head. Aroma is sweet and spicey, with hints of nutmeg and cinnamon. Has a medium mouthfeel with some roasted grains, spice, and a subtle earthiness. Overall, ok, but not really my thing.

More flavorful than some pumpkin seasonals, but it was mostly spices, as you’d expect. Not bad.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy, deeper orange colored body with a thin, white head that leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is sweet with a blend of soft spices and an acidic tartness. Clove and cinnamon stick out the most of the spices. Light caramels. Flavor is a moderately sweet, dry caramels and various spices that give this a distinct autumn taste. I can see myself watching the leaves change colors while drinking this. Very season-appropriate. A bit of an earthy bitterness dries this out and it finishes with just a touch of acidic citrus and opens up a light doughy taste. Light to medium bodied. Overall, a tasty spiced beer. The spices don’t overpower, but stay rather even keel while being distinct at the same time. I like the light citrus and earth too. Good balance and very enjoyable.

ChainGangGuy (4778) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Appearance: Pours a clear, pumpkin husk-hued body with a thin, bubbly, white head. Smell: Autumnal aroma of a homemade pumpkin pie spice mix backed by some toasty malts. Where are the pumpkins? Taste: Simple toasted malts with a modicum of sweetness transitions into the usual suspects found in a pumpkin pie (though, I’m more of a sweet potato pie man, myself) spice blend: nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice. Very, very faint citrus hoppiness with only a meager amount of bitterness. Finishes dry with what you’d call some residual spiceness. Okay, so there are no pumpkins -- joke’s on me! Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: Fine in the context of a light spiced beer, I guess, but it’s hard to refrain from letting out a discontented sigh for want of pumpkin. But if the pumpkins available to Arcadia are anything like the ones featured on the label, then I can fully understand their absence and omission from the recipe.
