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.

Pours a dark amber with a one finger head. Aroma is very spicy. Cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice make themselves prevalent. Taste is very spicy as well but not from hops, from the spices they pack into this beer. Palate is medium, slighty watery on the back end after the spices wash away. Overall a decent beer, perfect for what its for. The fall.

Draft at Moriartys. Slightly hazy orange brown pour with a slim head that seemed to disappear quickly. Lots of aggressive Pumpkin Pie spice. Not pulling any punches spicewise, but as for actual pumpkin flavor - one has to look hard to find it. Though the body is still quite full and juicy. There are some medium wheat flavors hiding well underneath, but mostly the spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, the usual suspects) are so far forward that the bitterness make it feel like a strong IPA. Not my favorite, but at least not the same old Pumpkin beer.

Pours a thin clear deep orange. The aroma is very pleasant. Itís pumpkin pie like - pretty sweet and full of spice. The taste isnít quite as good. Itís somewhat metallic but still goes down relatively smooth. I think the balance is off slightly with the use of hops - makes for a complex concoction but not necessarily a great one. Not too bad tho.

12 oz bottle. Pours deep amber with a small white froth. Aroma is standard spices and sweet bready notes, a bit of pumpkin, flavor also strongly spiced, a bit of the pie crust character, finishing somewhat bitter. Medium body and crisp carbonation.

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.

Bottle. Pours a dark orange color with white head. Pumpkin, spices, nutmeg, cinnamon aromas. Pumpkin, burnt toast, biscuit, spices in flavor. Pretty good pumpkin ale.

Thin head, mild carbonation. Copper pour with scents of pumpkin and spice. Fizzy kinda metallic taste at first but then the pumpkin flavor settles in. Light on the spice though.

Pours a deep copper. Aroma is bold and spicy. Flavor is also spicy. Nice medium-amber maltiness with lots of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Pretty good pumpkin ale.

Not the best pumpkin beer, but not the worst. Strong in spice, especially cinnamon, but there is also some nutmeg and some strange funk flavors. Tried as part of a fall beers tasting session.

Pours a clear amber color with a small amount of head that quickly fades. Aroma is mostly pumpkin and nutmeg along with some all spice and cinnamon. Taste is a bit off. Thereís a nice spicy pumpkin flavor but there also a some off flavors. Iím getting a slight sour taste and some metallic notes. Itís also very dry in the finish and I donít like it here. Very disappointing pumpkin beer.
