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.

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.

beerbill (3404) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 16, 2007
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.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Bottle. Dingy and amber color with some ugly carbonation hanging on the side of the glass. Head is small and fizzy. Aromas are of mulled cider and a little bit of pumpkin. Flavor: Yowch! Flavor is like a pumpkin ale at first and then gives way to a sour pucker that is reminsicent of Jolly Pumpkin products. Interesting and very different from your average pumpkin ale, but comes off kind of watery from time to time.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2007
Color of pumpkin pie, hazy. Aroma has nice nutmeg, ginger, clove character up front. Some fruity esters in the background. Flavor just sort of standard as pumpkin beers go. Heavy spice, muddled up hard to pick out individual spices. Caramelish sweet malt and light fruit esters again. residual cinnamon and nutmeg finish, not in a good way.

itís fall, so naturally every brewery comes out with a pumpkin beer. 12 oz bottle, pours a hazy dark orange and a small ring of white foam. faint aroma of malt and spice - typical pumpkin pie spice, but not overdone like some. essentially an amber ale with fall spices added - really not bad, except for the dry cinnamon finish.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Bottle courtesy of tjthresh. Pours a hazy copper with a thin white head. Smells of citrus, pie spice and some tea. Tastes sweet and malty with some hints of spice and some tea like elements. Finishes dry and tangy.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Draft at Radio Maria in Champaign, IL. Pours a hazy amber with a thick tan head. Aroma of nutmeg and allspice. Arcadia did a fine job with the spices, well blended flavors of nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice. However, this could use a little more heft in the malt bill to take this to the next level- at least for me. Overall, still enjoyable and worth a try.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Tasted 9/22/07. 12oz bottle. Hazy and sedimented. Amber hue. Tight ring of off-white head. Aromas of nutmeg and vinegar. Cinnamon and bready. More so pumpkin bread than pumpkin pie. Light to medium bodied. Good spices. Nice bitter base beer. Good malt to hop balance. The spices accentuate the brew. Nice spices with a touch of vanilla. Nice.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Bottle from Party Source. Poured hazy copper color with an average creamy off-white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Average spice, nutmeg and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Moderate sweet spice flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Not my style.
