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 from Party Source. Poured hazy copper color with an average creamy off-white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Average spice, nutmeg and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Moderate sweet spice flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Not my style.

Good pumpkin beer with a bit of hoppiness and tartness. Nice spices as well.

12oz bottle. Poured a deeper orangish / amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aroams of stronger cinnamon (reminds me of big red gum), other spices, and pumpkins. Lots of spices. Tastes of spices and pumpkins. If you like pumpkin pie with lots of spices, you’ll like this one (for me, I like less spices and more pumpkin).

On tap at the HopCat. I am starting to find pumpkin beers late summer. This one had significant and distinct pumpkin, as well as other spices to enhance drinkability. Cloudy yellow with some lace. Above average mouthfee. Not bad, and cinammon and nutmeg are spices I like. Mildly spicy aromas.

12 oz bottle. 6%. (Arcadia Brewing Co) Kalamazoo, Mi.
Halloween rooftop rating session in the dark. Chicago, IL.

Clear deep golden color with a tiny white head. Ginger ale, pumpkin, sweetness, spices, raisin and sweet malt in the aroma. The flavor is darkish fruit juice, pumpkin, mild hops, spices, sweetness and malt. Not the worst pumpkin brew.

DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2007
#3,500. Bottle from Capone’s. Turbid deep copper pour with 1-finger whitish head. Aroma of huge pumpkin spice, cinnamon, plus caramel malt and nutmeg. Tastes caramel malty, with the flavor of pumpkin pie + the crust, and the applicable spices to go with it. Medium palate heft, with a smooth finish. This one was nice, and kudos for another great label that is very original and season-appropriate.
