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.

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. Itís OK but there are so many of these beers on the market now, it is hard to separate from the pack.

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.

Heathen (1458) - 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.

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

orangish brown appearance with slight white head. flavor is of a light tasting balanced ale that has a slight pumpkin pie spice to it. no worse than most other pumpkin beers

Nate (3710) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2007
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.

Orange amber with a white head that dissipates to a remianing thin layer. Aroma of cinnamon, pumpkin, nutmeg, clove and caramel malt. Spicy pumpkiny taste married to decent malty amber ale. Medium to thin body. Spicy dry finish that gets a little sickening after a few.

12 oz. bottle from Styles, thanks! pours a not quite clear orangey amber with a smallish white head, fading to a ring of lace. aroma and flavor is pumpkin, spice and everything nice. well, some nutmeg & cinnamon too. not always a fan of the spiced beers, but Iím always up for a pumpkin brew and this is pretty good. enjoyable and worth a try.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2007 12 oz bottle - pours a beautiful cloudy fox-fur hue with a one-finger off-white head that settles to a thin layer but leaves nice lace. Aroma of the three spices listed in the description, with nutmeg being the most prominent, as well as a good deal of C-hop aroma underneath. Nice. Sweet and biscuity right off the bat, very quickly followed by an influx of spice that trails out slowly into a nice sweetness and a touch of alcohol heat. Medium bodied, and not much finish. The second pumpkin ale Iíve had, and Iím beginning to realize that I like the style very much and that it is the perfect beer for the autumn. Pumpkin pie in a glass.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with MrRain. Pours a slightly hazy rust color with llots of large carbonation bubbles clinging to the sides of the glass. Thin sudsy head that completely disappeared before I took my first sip. Light vegetable aroma along with some cinnamon. The flavor is a little bit of malt, some light vegetable flavors, and more dominantly, cinnamon and nutmeg. The cinnamon and nutmeg linger and bring on a dry finish.
