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.

tectactoe (2007) - Michigan, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Tap: Tinted amber & light copper with a mildly beige, thin layer of foam on top. Aroma is mostly heavy ginger & clove with a strong cinnamon afterbirth. More spiced than pumpkin itself; I think the ginger is a little overpowering. Or maybe it’s the clove. Taste is the same way, perhaps a little *too* spicy. Definitely the ginger but there’s an awful lot of clove, too. Mildly metallic aftertaste with a slightly bitter spiciness. Thin mouth feel. Much better autumn options exist.

EtTuCthulhu (1070) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - SEP 29, 2014
This beer pours a slightly hazy orange color with a small white head that fades quickly to a minimal ring. The aroma is a strong blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove, and the hint of pumpkin and caramel malts almost gets lost in the spices in the nose. Once sipped, this beer’s lackluster quality comes through in the barely-there flavor. What is tasted is slightly sour and a touch sweet, and the aftertaste is purely cinnamon. The palate fuses a nearly flat carbonation, slick texture, and a medium body, all of which don’t make this lacking beer gain any more points in my book.

I hate pumpkin beer and this is why. Really strong nutmeg and cinnamon flavor. Smells like nutmeg. Not much pumpkin flavor. Had at Kay's dugout ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not a memorable beer. Not bad but kind of weak on the finish. Nice aroma but wish it had a bit more bite

hopmelt (196) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Pours cloudy, medium orange, very slight head, dissipating thin lacing. Aroma clove, pumpkin, allspice, toasted malt, brown sugar, cinnamon. Taste pumpkin puree and slight bitter clove up front, then allspice, slight graham cracker and brown sugar sweetness mid mouth, finishes balanced. Mouthfeel medium body, low to medium carbonation, slight spicy bite, balanced finish, maybe slightly dry. Overall different, tasty, plays up the spice and clove, more allspice, not much cinnamon or nutmeg, slightly resembles a saison, I like this beer.

hfmejias (745) - Dover, Delaware, USA - SEP 13, 2014
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured hazy, copper in color with a minimal white head that dissipated quickly, no lacing at all. Aroma of spices (cinnamon and nutmeg). Taste is more spices, it’s also quite sweet. Not too sure about this one, interesting but more like a one time deal to me...

superspak (2681) - Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2014
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, fall 2014 bottling. Pours lightly hazy bright orange color with a 1 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with god balance and solid complexity of dark/bready malt and spice notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Light earthy spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and solid complexity of dark/bready malt and spice flavors; with a good malt/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very solid spiced ale. Good balance and solid complexity of dark/bready malt and spice flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A bit one dimensional, but nicely enjoyable otherwise.

Aroma is cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste is sweet and malty, and has a nice light hoppy bitterness. A pumpkin beer without any pumpkin in it. Surprisingly good though.
