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.

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????

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.

shadey (1896) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 9, 2007
12oz bottle consumed around Halloween 2007 in a side by side tasting with Michigan Brewing Screamin Pumpkin. Pour is slightly hazy melon orange. Head is a ring of white cream and a patchy layer of white swirls. Aroma is pretty weak. Mild pumpkin pie spices. Flavor is also pretty mild. This is pretty light all around. Disappointing - especially next to the screamin pumpkin. 5/3/5/3/12

Draft at Capone’s. In a word, forgettable. The nose has nothing but alcohol, empty alcohol. Across the palate a bit of pumpkin pie spice lingers, nothing jumps out - a slight hint of pumpkin. Not something I would try again.

12oz from Chevy Chase. Looked like another Fall Pumpkin Seasonal.. Pours orange with a 1 thin tan head. Nose is all spice and nutmeg with zero pie for me. Taste has pumpkin in it but overall is on the ehh side for me.

markwise (4467) - 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.

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

Arcadia Jaw-Jacker, a pumpkin spiced ale but no pumpkin - Pours an orangey-amber with off white head that dissipates to a rim of lacing fairly quickly. Overwhelming cinnamon aroma, which features strongly in the flavour profile but nutmeg and malt bread are quite discernible too. Finishes with some nice citrus hops. Mouthfeel is good, but this beer while having the basics, just doesn’t have unity.

Draft. Ginger Man, NYC. Deep amber body with a creamy, off-white head. The aroma is spicy as one would expect with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Pumpkin spice tastes with notes of caramel. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Seems overly spiced just like so many other pumpkin beers.
