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.

Cinnamon, all-spice, nutmeg dominate Jaw-Jacker from aroma to aftertaste. As ’MrBendo’ states the only pumpkin is on the label, not in the beer. Not sure the thinking behind the recipe for this brew, "but it is what it is". If you like a spiced beer, than give it a try.

Tessic (840) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2007
This ale poured an copper colour with a almost non-existant head, even after a hefty pour. To the nose there was scents of nutmeg and allspice, but I couldn’t find any cinnamon. First taste was very strong with spices, and this is where I found the cinnamon and other spices added. Finish was hoppy and the palate was bitter with lasting flavours of allspice????

Pours a cloudy dark orange color with small amount of foamy white head. Aroma is sweet and spicey, with hints of nutmeg and cinnamon. Has a medium mouthfeel with some roasted grains, spice, and a subtle earthiness. Overall, ok, but not really my thing.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2013 A nice seasonal effort, a little on the sweet side, spice are sufficiently prevelant but not as big as in Sreamin Pumpkin, but well balance. Light copper color with no head Sept 2013 Bottle, not the same with a distinct iron taste underneath.

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.

chinchin (15) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Pours a chestnut brown color with one fingers worth of white head. The aroma is potent with a variety of fall cooking spices. The flavor has notes of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. The spice flavor is not as dominant as I expected with the aroma being so vibrant. The carbonation is very mild and has a watery mouthfeel. Jaw Jacker ends with a bitter nutmeg orange finish. This ale went down easy, and had crisp quality to it, but the body was a little thin.

markwise (4428) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Pours a hazy brown-orange with an off-white head. Nose is malt, yeast, spices, and a bit heavy in allspice. A bit heavy on mouthfeel for a pumpkin ale. Flavor starts off with a peppery bite followed by citrus, orange peel, sour, and some barely noticeable pumpkin. Finish lingers with pepper and sour. Interesting, but most noticeable pumpkin flavor is only a memory that reoccurs after the beer is gone.
