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.

BPW #27 Served on tap at Arcadia Brewing Company. Appearance is a rich amber hue. Flavors and aromas are heavy with pumking spice, nutmeg and cinnamon predominantly. This is a nice fall beer that doesnt taste muddle like some. The spices come through clearly and are not over done and they ride on a nice crisp mouth.

Murky amber, thin beige head settling towards a ring, minimal lace. Aroma captures the best elements of pumpkin pie, not just the spices, but the caramelized sugars and earthiness of the pumpkin, too. Great smelling beer. Flavor doesnt quite live up, abundant cinnamon, cidery amber malts, citrus, the flavors are all there, but not working together. Theres some of that orange juice and toothpaste disharmony going on. Medium body, lively in terms of spices but slightly flat in term of carbonation.

Dans Bachelor Party Extended Weekend Rating #26 of 90. Tap at Arcadia, shared taster (hands down best taster offering Ive 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.

Bottle. One of the better tasting Halloween seasonal beers Ive come across. All of the usual spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, clove) are definitely noticeable, but not overpowering.

Bottle . A clear deep copper color body with a two finger off white foamy head . Aroma is of sweet roasted barley and pumpkin pie , nice amount of cinnamon and other spices with just a hint of baked apple . Flavor is lightly sweet with some nice cinnamon , and nutmeg notes , a little brown bread . A light bitterness and citrus finish from the hops . Medium body , smooth mouthfeel . A good drinker for a style that is not my favorite .

kassner (1553) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2009
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.

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.

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

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy, deeper orange colored body with a thin, white head that leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is sweet with a blend of soft spices and an acidic tartness. Clove and cinnamon stick out the most of the spices. Light caramels. Flavor is a moderately sweet, dry caramels and various spices that give this a distinct autumn taste. I can see myself watching the leaves change colors while drinking this. Very season-appropriate. A bit of an earthy bitterness dries this out and it finishes with just a touch of acidic citrus and opens up a light doughy taste. Light to medium bodied. Overall, a tasty spiced beer. The spices dont overpower, but stay rather even keel while being distinct at the same time. I like the light citrus and earth too. Good balance and very enjoyable.
