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.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 28, 2008
12 oz bottle. Deep orange-amber beer quite cloudy with a thin white head. Aroma is lightly spicy. Some clove, nutmeg and allspice in the nose. There is a soft malty backnote as well. A bit of lightly toffeeish sweetness and a bit of cherryish yeasty fruitiness. Sort of a spice English ale. It’s a bit different from other pumpkin beers and I quite like it.

b3shine (8183) - Indiana, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Draft to taster at Arcadia in Kalamazoo. Looks good for the style; a fairly transparent orange with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of pumpkins nutmeg with a bit of citrus from the hops. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced, and zestier. Average on the palate with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Solid, but smells better than it tastes.

More flavorful than some pumpkin seasonals, but it was mostly spices, as you’d expect. Not bad.

Bottle split with Linh. Pours a dark murky brown body with thin off white lacing. Aroma is stringent spice. Mouthfeel is smooth and carbonated with spice notes.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 1, 2008
Pours a hazy orange amber with a small forth of wispy white head. Aroma of lightly sweet caramel, nutmeg and pumpkin, with some citric tartness. Starts with decent body and sweet maltiness showing some light cinnamon spice before a drier, doughy pumpkin flesh finish with some light fruity tart character. An interesting spiced beer, but could be a little more assertive and balanced.

Sample at Buckeye Beer Engine on 9/14/14. Clear amber pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, malt and allspice. Malty flavor with ginger, cinnamon and allspice before a slightly bitter hop finish.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Bottle: Bright caramel, hazy, thin spritzy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Big spicey nose, some cinnamon, nutmeg, but moreso all-spice.   Heavy on the all-spice as far as flavor, but present is nutmeg and a bit more cinnamon than most.   Not much background, body and mouthfeel are moderate.   All-spice is dominant throughout.   Wouldn’t mind the all-spice to be a little more muted, with more nutmeg and cinnamon.   As is, its fairly decent.   No real pumpkin flavor tho.   Thanks Chris for the bottle!

FROTHINGSLOSH (6839) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2009
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-caramel color with a trace of a tan head. The aroma was light spices and fruits with a candied ginger presence dominating. The flavor was tart, spicy and a little bitter with a fruity presence and pervading candied ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. Medium body. Solid.

Pailhead (6426) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - SEP 11, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2007 Bottle: Great aroma of ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon. This is about a close as you’re going to get for duplicating a pumpkin pie aroma. It pours a slightly hazy orange with a minimal off-white head that fades quickly to a ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with a light sweet caramel maltiness. All the pumpkin pie spice comes in the finish. Great combination of nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon with the slightest hint of grassy bitterness. I’ll be surprised if anyone scores this as well as me, but I like pumpkin beers and this is as good as I’ve had for a non-Imperial pumpkin beer.
