COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This spiced amber-wheat ale is our celebration of the arrival of Autumn. Using the finest malted barley and a small amount of wheat for mouthfeel, Jaw-Jacker displays a brilliant orange-amber color, despite the absence of pumpkin in the recipe. The addition of cinnamon, all-spice and nutmeg (in the exact proportions of a family pumpkin pie recipe) creates a refreshingly spicy, season brew.

Has the most pleasing "pumpkin" appearance of any pumpkin ale Iíve ever had: a beautiful, deep rich orange. Not overly sweety, mostly strong spice character stands out than pumpkin flavor. Spice wise, itís more of a ginger/allspice profile than a cinnamon/nutmeg one. Nice nose. Bright on the tongue.

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.

Bottle . A clear deep copper color body with a two finger off white foamy head . Aroma is of sweet roasted barley and pumpkin pie , nice amount of cinnamon and other spices with just a hint of baked apple . Flavor is lightly sweet with some nice cinnamon , and nutmeg notes , a little brown bread . A light bitterness and citrus finish from the hops . Medium body , smooth mouthfeel . A good drinker for a style that is not my favorite .

No notes on this beer. I had several beers where I was only able to kind of take small notes and therefore everyone suffers.

Aroma: Pumpkin pie aromas clearly evident, with hints of citrus hops, but not too much. Appearance: Cloudy orange with no head. Taste: Medium sweetness throughout with hints of sourness in the finish. Palate: Medium body, dry texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: The best pumpkin ale Iíve tasted this season (2013). Itís very pumpkiny, despite having no actual pumpkin in the recipe, with the spice flavors apparent, but tempers it with the hops for great flavor. I really enjoyed this one.

Thin, dissapating head. golden, light amber, honey colour. Pretty enough. Smells of sweet malt and pumpkin pie spices, not so much pumpkin. A good medium-full body. Taste of pumpkin pie spices, no pumpkin and slight hop bitterness. Did I mention the spices? Clove in particular. Overall, it’s a typical pumpkin (pie) beer. Forgettable.

OK pumpkin ale with more spices than pumpkin. If you feel like you have to drink something with pumpkin in it this would be fine...then you could move on to a beer that taste good. A one and done beer for me...

For some reason this year I have felt the need to try Pumpkin beers. I thought This would be a pumpkin beer. However, after tasting it, is a a good ale... with a little too much spice. The pour is cloudy amber, with a small whitish head. the Aroma is sweat malt, clover and nutmeg. The beer lingers a bit on the pallate, and the flavor is pretty much over powered by the spices. An ok beer.

Danís Bachelor Party Extended Weekend Rating #26 of 90. Tap at Arcadia, shared taster (hands down best taster offering Iíve ever had...a total of 9-3oz pours for $7.99). Pours clear orange. Pumkin, spices and giner nose with flavors that follow. I little bite on the throat, but pretty good overall.
