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.

12oz bottle. Sweet lemon-spice aroma. Thick, murky orange color. The taste was surpisingly light and citrusy for a Pumpkin Ale. The wheat really changes the character of the beer, giving it a real dry crispness. The lack of real pumpkins is a little bit of a disappointment, but it is fresh and balanced enough to enjoy. OK.

Bottle. Medium light tan head. No lacing. Cloudy apple cider color. Aroma of cinnamon and allspice. Taste of the same. This was a great seasonal beer from the folks at Arcadia. Very satisfying and extremely drinkable. Perfect for a late fall evening. I will definitely look forward to this beer next fall.

Not much to speak of in terms of aroma, the spices seem muddled, they are there, but muddled... Good flavor, a bit spicier than some other pumpkins, but quite a bit thinner... I think it might be too spicy for its body, but it tastes good....

Draft at Capone’s. In a word, forgettable. The nose has nothing but alcohol, empty alcohol. Across the palate a bit of pumpkin pie spice lingers, nothing jumps out - a slight hint of pumpkin. Not something I would try again.

I just got this as part of a pick six at my local shop. It pours a clear dark, almost reddish brown. On the nose, you definitely get the spices listed on the bottle, very much a fall-time beer. The flavor is sweet, with a bit of sourness on the finish, but very tasty, and very balanced. I think this be at least an 85 overall. Cheers!

12 oz bottle. Deep orange-amber beer quite cloudy with a thin white head. Aroma is lightly spicy. Some clove, nutmeg and allspice in the nose. There is a soft malty backnote as well. A bit of lightly toffeeish sweetness and a bit of cherryish yeasty fruitiness. Sort of a spice English ale. It’s a bit different from other pumpkin beers and I quite like it.

<i>12oz bottle:</i> Crystal clear amber pour with a thinnish tan head. The nose is nicely balanced with the pie spices playing off the caramel sweetness of the malt. The body drinks like a lager, thin and refreshing, with notes of cinnamon, caramalized pumpkin and nutmeg. Finishes a bit chalky on the back of the tongue. A well balanced, drinkable brew but not something that is going to keep you warm during the cold months.

Pours amber brown with a light tan head. Nose of spice and malt. Taste was heavy spice, caramel malt, and strong citrus hoppiness, but not a lot of pumpkin pie. Finish was malty. If I tasted pumpkin, it was uncooked pumpkin. It’s good, but it’s not like the rest of the pumpkin ales out there.

Poured a thickish, dark coppery with a slight tinted head. It smelled very spicy of pumpkin and perhaps cinnamon. It seems moderately carbonated and has a decent body. It’s finish is great--very spiced but not over the top. A great seasonal and another great beer from Arcadia. I would definitely have this one again.

Tried today from Tim’s beer rep. Actually quite nice for a pumpkin ale (with no pumpkin). Very nice balance of flavor. Most pumpkin ales I find to be very seltzery and off in the spice flavor. This is very nice and should be well commended. Tim has done a nice thing with this beer.
