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.

12oz. Bottle: Faint sweet aroma. Smells of spices, nutmeg, caramel malts, and pumpkin pie. Poured dark orange in color with a small, fizzy, off-white head that diminished immediately. Hazy. Lightly sparkling. Some small particles. Tastes lightly sweet. Flavors of pumpkin, light spices, and caramel malts. Light to medium body. Creamy, oily texture. Soft to average carbonation. Malty pumpkin finish.

Pours a hazy light orange-brown with tiny suspended particles and a frothy, beige head. The aroma is fairly muted, but it reminds me of pumpkin bread or pie without the pumpkin itself: allspice, nutmeg and faint cinnamon. Light to medium bodied and slick with tongue-tickling carbonation it finishes slightly dry. The flavor is a sweet malty front followed by a strong hit of spice that completely takes over from there: allspice up front, with a light cinnamon following and nutmeg taking over for the finish and aftertaste. Fairly dry at the end. This isn’t a bad beer, but drinking one is plenty unless you are really into heavily spiced beers. I like the idea behind the concept, but IMO he spice blend simply overpowers the malt backing of this one.

Bottle. Pours a hazy, brown-orange color with a thin off white head that quickly dissipates. Traces of some sediment. Lots of baking spices in the aroma, with cinnamon and allspice being most dominant. There is some fresh pumpkin and toasted malt in the background. Overpowering spices and a faint smokey flavor drown out any pumpkin that may be in here and leaves a slight medicinal aftertaste. Disappointing because I enjoy these spices in my Fall seasonals when balanced properly.

draft... light copper body, great super lasting head with great retention and lacing... the nose has a touch of spice, in between a pumpkin beer and xmas beer... the taste is lots of spice as the backbone of the beer, but somehow it works and doesn’t over power, really nice cinnamon notes... not my style of beers at all but I enjoyed this one

Aroma is cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste is sweet and malty, and has a nice light hoppy bitterness. Not crazy about pumpkin beers.

Bottle. This was definitely outside of my spice comfort range. If you love those big fall beers that get all kinds of spicy this is for you.

EithCubes (5205) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle. Nose extremely strong on the spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, some vanilla, but a soft, sweet maltiness underlies. Pours murky orange-brown with a dull beige head. Very autumnal taste, the above mentioned spices, pulled back a bit and in perfect balance with each other, stronger malt coming up to meet them from underneath. Almost no sweetness or bitterness here, closer to bland than anyone would like, but there’s a nice earthy overtone and even the thin, weakened malt gets in a punch or two. Cheers for the balls of straight up admitting, right off the bat, that there’s no pumpkin in this, but I need more out of the base beer, even if the limited adjuncts are deployed well.

Bottle. Allspice is the predominant aroma. Fairly light palate and the flavor of the spices is pleasant but not overwhelming. Not a bad pumpkin beer.

Jaw-jacker reminds one of a wheat ale. It has a slightly sour taste with a hint of spice and citrus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured hazy, copper in color with a minimal white head that dissipated quickly, no lacing at all. Aroma of spices (cinnamon and nutmeg). Taste is more spices, it’s also quite sweet. Not too sure about this one, interesting but more like a one time deal to me...
