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.

Smooth and tasty. this beer ushers in the fall with the rich aroma of pumpkin and spice and reminds me of a trip to the yankee candle store.

12 oz bottle. Pours deep amber with a small white froth. Aroma is standard spices and sweet bready notes, a bit of pumpkin, flavor also strongly spiced, a bit of the pie crust character, finishing somewhat bitter. Medium body and crisp carbonation.

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

ElGaucho (2193) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Bottle. Very similar nutmeg aroma to New Belgium Ichabod. Allspice notes also evident. cinnamon more subdued. So, perhaps less pumpkin pieish and more holiday spiceish. Where Ichabod was slightly hazy light amber, this brew is murky, dark amber. Nice color. Small white head leaves a thin layer on top. Not much lace. Despite smelling less like pumpkin pie than Ichabod, Jaw-Jacker has the taste down even closer. Has the same long spice finish. Good brew. Very similar brew to Ichabod. Iím not sure which I like better. Theyíre both very good; I think I prefered the Ichabod, which was slightly less harsh and more drinkable but would need a side-by-side to be sure.

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.

Danís Bachelor Party Extended Weekend Rating #26 of 90. Tap at Arcadia, shared taster (hands down best taster offering Iíve ever had...a total of 9-3oz pours for $7.99). Pours clear orange. Pumkin, spices and giner nose with flavors that follow. I little bite on the throat, but pretty good overall.

NaturalIce (146) - originally from Michigan, New York, USA - SEP 24, 2009
Pours out a clear orange with a small white head that quickly settles around the edge of the glass. Spices maintain a presence in the aroma but arenít overwhelming. The nutmeg really comes out in the flavor and the spices finish it off. One of the better pumpkin ales Iíve had.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2009 ~ Purchased a 6-pack from Big Z Beverage in Huntington, NY. Pours a hazy orange color with a creamy white head. Cooler temperatures, leaves changing colors, and homemade pumpkin pies are just a few of the things that come to mind when I take a whiff of this beer. Aromas are of pumpkin spices, and it tastes pretty much the way it smells. This was satisfying, and I will have no problems finishing off the other bottles. ~

FROTHINGSLOSH (4843) - 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.
