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.

Good pumpkin beer with a bit of hoppiness and tartness. Nice spices as well.

Bottle. 8/15/13. Pours a translucent gold-amber color with a thin, just off-white head. Aroma is nice, rich; pumpkin, vanilla, clove, all spice, cinnamon, touch of sour. Taste is very fresh pumpkins, spices (nutmeg, clove, all spice), some cinnamon, touch of citrus. No lacing. Medium-low carbonation. Slick mouth feel. The idea here is pretty fantastic, using the citrus and the wheat in conjunction with the pumpkin. It produces a fairly elevated pumpkin flavor. Unfortunately, there isn’t much of it. I would like a more intense flavor profile.

Bottle. This was definitely outside of my spice comfort range. If you love those big fall beers that get all kinds of spicy this is for you.

Pours a chestnut brown color with one fingers worth of white head. The aroma is potent with a variety of fall cooking spices. The flavor has notes of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. The spice flavor is not as dominant as I expected with the aroma being so vibrant. The carbonation is very mild and has a watery mouthfeel. Jaw Jacker ends with a bitter nutmeg orange finish. This ale went down easy, and had crisp quality to it, but the body was a little thin.

Bottle... Poured copper orange with an off-white head. Nose had candied malt sweetness with hints of pumpkin spice. Spicy, pie-like, some vegetal squash but very faint. Hints of honey and mint with cinnamon. Overall, low on squash, high on pumpkin pie spice.

Bottle. Dark golden orange with Minsk head. Way too much allspice and cinnamon. Couldn't finish the bottle.

I...love this beer. Few things make me think of fall in Michigan more than Jaw Jacker. Head is creamy but almost non-existent. Color is beautiful red amber. Aroma makes me think of pumpkin pie...lots of nutmeg, though with a slightly crisp apple. Taste? Wow...buttery cinnamon and nutmeg, with just enough carbonation and hops to be crisp and refreshing. Not too complex, but very well balanced. Cheers! Note: this is a pumpkin SPICED beer, NOT a pumpkin beer, nor does it claim to be anywhere on the bottle. The bottle says "ale with spices added (cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg)." If you're looking for a pumpkin beer, search elsewhere. If you're looking for a damn tasty and refreshing fall brew, open a bottle already! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste is sweet and malty, and has a nice light hoppy bitterness. Not crazy about pumpkin beers.

Purchased at Breeze Thru Liquors in Wauwatosa, WI, enjoyed on a Sunday late in the Bears season while watching a game. Appearance is a cloudy dark gold with a small but frothy white head that rims around the glass. Aroma is pretty sweet with a sweet pumpkin/clove/cinnamon profile. Taste is also very sweet with a pumpkin pie like flavor, but to me it tastes a bit artificial, not much malt unless in the back end. Not bad, just ok.

I don’t really care for pumpkin beers, so this fall beer is right up my alley, because it has the spices of pumpkin pie without the pumpkin. I like this beer because you can tasted the nutmeg and cinnamon without it overpowering the beer and becoming overly sweet. If I want something that tastes like a can of pumpkin pie filling, I’ll eat a can of pumpkin pie filling.
