COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Jaw-Jacker balances our finest malted barley with a bit-o-wheat and is complimented with a citrus hop kick and just the right amount of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice for a nice marriage of pumpkin pie and beer. Made in the fall to celebrate the changing of the season.

Bottle at The Coney. Mild spice aroma. Cinnamon, allspice, and whatever else goes into pumpkin pie. Light sugary sweetness with a bit of nutty character. Medium dark amber clear with thin off-white head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet with brown sugar and malt. Pumpkin pie spices. Neutral fruit with nutty finish. Mild hoppy and nutty after. A decent pumpkin beer.

12oz bottle. Aroma is malty and spicy. Hazy medium amber body with an average off-white foamy head that mostly diminished. No lacing. Flavor is close to an amber ale but with some autum spice, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon. Palate is light-medium bodied, watery, and soft carbonation. One of my favorite autum ales. Smooth and quite drinkable.

In all fairness, I am not a fan of pumpkin ales...I thought this was an average spiced ale. It is very drinkable, but if I had any complaints I would say that is has to much cinnamon and nutmeg. I can see how a lot of others might like this beer though. I love the label on the bottle also.

From dra19 via trade, thank you again! The pour was a slighly cloudy copper color with an almost two-finger tall off-white head. The aroma was mild, with some malt noted underneath the dry spicyness of cinnamon and nutmeg. The flavor was nicely spiced with the nutmeg and cinnamon coming through quite well. Many of these beers seem to be watery with a splash of spice/flavor thrown in as an afterthought. This one has an aggressive flavor and I kinda dug it. The mouthfeel is thin to medium in body and the finish is quite dry.

Pours a reddish golden color with very large bubbles up and down the glass. The thin white head is gone almost immediately. The aroma is very full and complex. All of the pumpkin pie spices are there in force. The flavor is farily rich as well with the ubiquitous pumpkin ales allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg, along with a biscuity malt flavor and relatively powerful hops. The mouthfeel is weird in that the large bubbles feel sharp on the palate, but overall this is a solid pumpkin beer, which means a lot from me.

Heathen (1463) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 30, 2007
THOUGHTS: A little too much spice and not enough of anything else. Fairly good for not even having any pumpkin in it. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a hazy, medium brownish amber with a small head. The aroma was moderate malt, allspice, nutmeg and cinnamon. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and acidic, while the finish was moderately sweet and acidic and lightly bitter and sour with an average duration. The flavor was some caramel malt but mostly spices. The medium body was oily with soft carbonation and a dry spice finish.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Hazy amber body, thin-medium off-white head. Light, spicy aroma featuring nutmeg and cinnamon, and I suppose allspice too, if I could pick that one out. The spices present somewhat harshly in the body, which does thankfully exhibit a bready malt backbone, especially evident as the beer warms up a bit. It’s OK but there are so many of these beers on the market now, it is hard to separate from the pack.

10.24.07 bottle. Fairly good pumpkin beer. Not overwhelming pumpkin taste but a little pumpie pie flavor. Works for me, don’t expect all too much here.

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - NOV 22, 2007
(bottle) Medium orange gold, slightly hazy, small head. Faint spice aroma. Flavor was spice (more allspice and nutmeg). Flavor was spice on a malt base.
