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.

Orange amber with a white head that dissipates to a remianing thin layer. Aroma of cinnamon, pumpkin, nutmeg, clove and caramel malt. Spicy pumpkiny taste married to decent malty amber ale. Medium to thin body. Spicy dry finish that gets a little sickening after a few.

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

joeymacaroni (309) - Wagontown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Pours amber brown with a light tan head. Nose of spice and malt. Taste was heavy spice, caramel malt, and strong citrus hoppiness, but not a lot of pumpkin pie. Finish was malty. If I tasted pumpkin, it was uncooked pumpkin. It’s good, but it’s not like the rest of the pumpkin ales out there.

Voodoo (291) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Pours a clean orange-copper color resulting in very little lacing. Very good mouthfeel, with pumpkin taste dominating the barely perceptible spices giving it less a pumpkin pie taste and more a straight up pumpkin beer. Adequate carbonation and the flavor remains for a bit.

Fech (290) - Parsippany, New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2012
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.

sarahmarie (265) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2011
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.

BrownALEx (262) - Portland, Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2012
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.

Spookgolds (241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Bottle from craft beer outlet. Smells and tastes of spices, but not too much pumpkin. Pretty good, not great.

Hollywoodt (239) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 25, 2010
Poured a darker hazy orange color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was of pumpkin and a bit of spice. The flavor was the same with a little malt and caramel thrown in. Not bad.

smooch (238) - Sylvania, Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2008
As pumpkin beers go, this isn’t noteworthy at all. I barely taste any spices and no pumpkin flavor. Good sort of soft and sticky mouthfeel. Tartness on the tail. I can drink it, but I wouldn’t go back for more.
