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.

Murky amber, thin beige head settling towards a ring, minimal lace. Aroma captures the best elements of pumpkin pie, not just the spices, but the caramelized sugars and earthiness of the pumpkin, too. Great smelling beer. Flavor doesn’t quite live up, abundant cinnamon, cidery amber malts, citrus, the flavors are all there, but not working together. There’s some of that orange juice and toothpaste disharmony going on. Medium body, lively in terms of spices but slightly flat in term of carbonation.

An ok pumpkin ale. It has a nice spiced flavor to it, but is otherwise fairly bland. Needs more carmel malts for more body IMO.

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.

Pours a reddish golden color with very large bubbles up and down the glass. The thin white head is gone almost immediately. The aroma is very full and complex. All of the pumpkin pie spices are there in force. The flavor is farily rich as well with the ubiquitous pumpkin ales allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg, along with a biscuity malt flavor and relatively powerful hops. The mouthfeel is weird in that the large bubbles feel sharp on the palate, but overall this is a solid pumpkin beer, which means a lot from me.

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...

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.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2007 12 oz bottle - pours a beautiful cloudy fox-fur hue with a one-finger off-white head that settles to a thin layer but leaves nice lace. Aroma of the three spices listed in the description, with nutmeg being the most prominent, as well as a good deal of C-hop aroma underneath. Nice. Sweet and biscuity right off the bat, very quickly followed by an influx of spice that trails out slowly into a nice sweetness and a touch of alcohol heat. Medium bodied, and not much finish. The second pumpkin ale I’ve had, and I’m beginning to realize that I like the style very much and that it is the perfect beer for the autumn. Pumpkin pie in a glass.

stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2011 On tap at hop angel. Great aroma of cinammon, nutmeg. Taste is sort of pumpkin, mostly cinammon. A bit too heavy on the spices and light on the pumpkin.

Tried today from Tim’s beer rep. Actually quite nice for a pumpkin ale (with no pumpkin). Very nice balance of flavor. Most pumpkin ales I find to be very seltzery and off in the spice flavor. This is very nice and should be well commended. Tim has done a nice thing with this beer.
