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.

Bottle. Allspice is the predominant aroma. Fairly light palate and the flavor of the spices is pleasant but not overwhelming. Not a bad pumpkin beer.

Draft at the Belgian Cafe with Pat and Sean Tommy. Pours a murky orange with amazing frothy, lumpy, lasting beige head and erratic soapy lace. Nose of spice - cinnamon and nutmeg, caramel. Thin to medium body a little watery.

From 12 oz bottle, clear orange copper color with almost no head on an aggressive pour. There is a lot of spice, I get cinnamon and nutmeg clearly, Medium body, slightly, oily, a tinge of spice bitterness, maybe from cinnamon. Malt is bread, similar to pumpkin pie, nutmeg and cinnamon. Interesting take on a ’pumpkin’ beer.

Bottle. Pours a nice, medium copper color, slight white head. Nose is slightly malty and pie spice... seems promising then goes downhill from there. Mouth is watery and unpronounced up front, then this odd sour-vegetal thing kicks in, with an abundance of cloves (I’m guessing that’s the allspice.... it overwhelmed everything else), then this muted bitterness that was like drinking asprin in water, followed by a soapy finish. Fucking awful.

Ok, I may beer a snob but I don't think there is any pumpkin in this beer. Just spices from a pumpkin pie. Decent beer but I want pumpkin in my pumpkin beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An ok pumpkin ale. It has a nice spiced flavor to it, but is otherwise fairly bland. Needs more carmel malts for more body IMO.

12 oz bottle lots of spice almost too much. Not a very good pumpkin beer... ---thewarlock

This poured a bright orange with a white head. Aroma was Ginger and cinnamon. Flavor was similar, way too much Ginger. Bad pumpkin.

It’s ok. Lots of spice, cinnamon, cardamom. Light and easy to drink. Brown and not much of a head.

ganache (5951) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle. Nose extremely strong on the spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, some vanilla, but a soft, sweet maltiness underlies. Pours murky orange-brown with a dull beige head. Very autumnal taste, the above mentioned spices, pulled back a bit and in perfect balance with each other, stronger malt coming up to meet them from underneath. Almost no sweetness or bitterness here, closer to bland than anyone would like, but there’s a nice earthy overtone and even the thin, weakened malt gets in a punch or two. Cheers for the balls of straight up admitting, right off the bat, that there’s no pumpkin in this, but I need more out of the base beer, even if the limited adjuncts are deployed well.
