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.

I’m a big fan of pumpkin beers, so this one had my attention. Poured orange with some sediment at the bottom, medium head. Aroma is in line with many others in the style, light with spices on top of medium malts and light hops. This beer did not have much flavor compared to others, but would probably fair quite well back-to back with some of the more commercially available pumpkin beers. Decent, but not one I’ll get again.

As pumpkin beers go, this isn’t noteworthy at all. I barely taste any spices and no pumpkin flavor. Good sort of soft and sticky mouthfeel. Tartness on the tail. I can drink it, but I wouldn’t go back for more.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - NOV 1, 2008
(Bottle from McKean and Charles) Pours fairly cloudy orange with two fingers of off-white head. Aroma mostly of spice with some lighter caramel maltiness. Mouthfeel medium hefty and fairly smooth. Patchy, broken lacing. Flavor of spice (nutmeg, cinnamon) overlaying some caramel and vanilla maltiness. Nothing exciting but not bad.

Pours a hazy orange amber with a small forth of wispy white head. Aroma of lightly sweet caramel, nutmeg and pumpkin, with some citric tartness. Starts with decent body and sweet maltiness showing some light cinnamon spice before a drier, doughy pumpkin flesh finish with some light fruity tart character. An interesting spiced beer, but could be a little more assertive and balanced.

Thin, dissapating head. golden, light amber, honey colour. Pretty enough. Smells of sweet malt and pumpkin pie spices, not so much pumpkin. A good medium-full body. Taste of pumpkin pie spices, no pumpkin and slight hop bitterness. Did I mention the spices? Clove in particular. Overall, it’s a typical pumpkin (pie) beer. Forgettable.

Bottle orange in color, small head. Aroma was lemon, grass hops. Taste is bitter... I didnt pick up much pumpkin in the taste, maybe a hint of cinnamon. If some one told me this was an IPA, I would belive them. Decent beer...

Not enough pumpkin for me. Odd tasting yeast for the style, but not necessarily bad.

12oz bottle. Sweet lemon-spice aroma. Thick, murky orange color. The taste was surpisingly light and citrusy for a Pumpkin Ale. The wheat really changes the character of the beer, giving it a real dry crispness. The lack of real pumpkins is a little bit of a disappointment, but it is fresh and balanced enough to enjoy. OK.

Bottle. Medium light tan head. No lacing. Cloudy apple cider color. Aroma of cinnamon and allspice. Taste of the same. This was a great seasonal beer from the folks at Arcadia. Very satisfying and extremely drinkable. Perfect for a late fall evening. I will definitely look forward to this beer next fall.

Not much to speak of in terms of aroma, the spices seem muddled, they are there, but muddled... Good flavor, a bit spicier than some other pumpkins, but quite a bit thinner... I think it might be too spicy for its body, but it tastes good....
