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.

Yum! Clear orange color and smells more pumpkin than spice. Not as much pumpkin as I expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a golden clear brown and left a small white head. Though the body was extremely clear, there was no carbonation was seen rising. The smell had nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice up front and dominating every aspect of the aromas. The taste was pretty much the same. Some pumpkin came out in the taste as it warmed up. On the palate, it sat at about a light and felt great on my tongue. This is an extremely drinkable beer. Overall ok, I know its not a true "pumpkin ale," but I can see certain seasonal aspects how some would think this is since the pumpkin only came out once the beer warmed.

Draft at beer fest. Pours clear orange with a medium sized white head. The aroma has pumpkin puree but limited spices. The taste is light pumpkin, not complex.

Aroma is spices and perfumed sour/sweetness, cant tell if its pumpkin or yam. The flavor is spices, citrus, mild wheat notes and the same sour/sweetness from the aroma in the finish.

bottle. Amber orange with small head. Pumpkin pie spice and some citrus hops. A little untraditional, but it works for me.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours orangish with a small off white head. Taste nutmeg, cinnamon, sweet. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ben4321 (5897) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from Central Market, 11/10/13

Aroma: The aroma is vegetal and spice, mild pumpkin, and cinnamon
Appearance: It pours a dark orange color, some beige head, and mid-plus lacework
Flavor: The taste is much the same, a little too much vegetal, not enough pumpkin spice
Palate: The body is medium, it has a decent mouthfeel, average carbonation, and a tingly finish
Overall Impression: I wanted this one to be better, but the vegetal flavor overrides the pumpkin spice and makes it a less than stellar example of the style for me.

nice pumpkin spice with a good bit of pumpkin flavor and a fuller body. seems like a pumpkin pudding since the body is thick because of a full frothy foam. the kicker here is a nice grape and citrus fruit punchy hit that comes right before the finish. its here and then its gone. pretty snazzy for a pint or so. good stuff.
