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.

It poured a hazy dark orange color with a small off-white head. The aroma was spicy nutmeg and cinnamon. The taste was definitely pumpkin rind with some nutmeg. There is also a hint of cinnamon. A very good pumpkin ale.

12oz bottle. Pours a nice clear orangish amber color with a long-lasting off-white head. The aroma has big pumpkin pie spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, with a bit of sweet caramel malt. Flavor is like a pumpkin ale that’s a bit overspiced and doesn’t have any pumpkin. Caramel malt and big spiced notes, with lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. I don’t like the mouthfeel much, as the spices linger a little more than I’d like and it’s a bit thin. Mediocre overall.

Bottle from craft beer outlet. Smells and tastes of spices, but not too much pumpkin. Pretty good, not great.

Pours a nice orange amber with no head. Smells more of pumpkin or pumpkin pie than straight spices. Tastes much the same. Smooth finish and pretty decent.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2011 12 ounce bottle, no bottle date but most likely from this season. Pours very hazy golden orange color with a fairly dense 1-2 fingers of off white head with nice retention that reduces to a thin lacing cap. Aromas of big cinnamon, clove, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, caramel, and a bit of citrus. Decent aromas here, but there seems to be an odd medicinal aroma as well. Taste of big spiciness, clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon up front; with some caramel and sweetness near the finish. Not much bitterness on the finish; but notes of big spices, pepper, clove, and cinnamon linger on the finish. Medium bodied with fairly high carbonation; with a bit of a creamy moutfeel and smooth drinkability despite the carbonation level. No alcohol noticed other than a slight warming after the finish. Overall this is actually quite good for a spiced ale. Good balance of spices and sweetness, and I definitely enjoyed this.

Strong aroma of pumpkin pie spics, brown sugar, just what I would expect from this style of beer. The flavor hints at cinnamon and nutmeg, with a solid bready malt backbone. Very little hops. Above average pumpkin beer.

12oz bottle poured into snifter. Hazy brown color with a thin off white head, thin and lacy. Aroma has a nice pumpkin pie scent to it with a nice hint of vanilla. Flavor is very sub par, very little pumpkin flavor. Only got a little on the back end.

BucannonXC5 (829) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 25, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2011 Poured from a bottle into a pint glass at Dema (Westin) in Detroit, Mich. Color was a darker amber. Looked hoppy right off the bat. Minimal amount of head, lacing and film. Smelled pumpkin pie, nutmeg and cinnamon. A bit off-putting. Initial taste was nutmeg. Also some pumpkin pie and some cinnamon spices. A sharp hoppy finish. Medium body. Dry finish with spices on the end of the tongue. Soft carbonation and flattened out even more at the end. I guess I’m glad I tried this, so I know not to the next time.

draft... light copper body, great super lasting head with great retention and lacing... the nose has a touch of spice, in between a pumpkin beer and xmas beer... the taste is lots of spice as the backbone of the beer, but somehow it works and doesn’t over power, really nice cinnamon notes... not my style of beers at all but I enjoyed this one

Least favorite of the night. Pour was bland and unexciting. No head. Aroma is hoppy and mild cinnamon. Flavor is slightly slinky and hoppy. Some pumpkin and cinnamon.
