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.

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.

Bottle. Not what I was expecting (hoping for). Pours the typical autumn colors And has the right aromas. However the taste is very sour (too much citrus) and "thin". Typical pumpkin ales are more full bodied and deep tasting. This one is very IPA-ish and citrusy. Disappointed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pretty good pumpkin. Easy to drink and not overly spicy. Would drink this anytime! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Folks, do yourselves a favor when drinking and rating this beer and understand what is actually in it (or should I say, what is not). This is NOT a pumpkin ale. Do you know why? It doesnt include any pumpkin! Looks can be deceiving. This beer is made to taste like a pumpkin ale, but it grossly over spiced. I had a hard time even finishing it.

Aroma: Pumpkin pie aromas clearly evident, with hints of citrus hops, but not too much. Appearance: Cloudy orange with no head. Taste: Medium sweetness throughout with hints of sourness in the finish. Palate: Medium body, dry texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: The best pumpkin ale Ive tasted this season (2013). Its very pumpkiny, despite having no actual pumpkin in the recipe, with the spice flavors apparent, but tempers it with the hops for great flavor. I really enjoyed this one.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 At Bar Louie. Hmm, although not bad tasting this beer was all over the place. It was kind of a mess. The mix didnt work. Serving: Tap

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

The best thing about this beer is that it looks like apple cider. The smell, oddly similar to over-ripe bananas, is off-putting. The flavor is lacking. Theres a harsh bite to it (someone on the site called it sour and I agree), which makes it difficult to enjoy.

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