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

On tap @ Rattle ’N’ Hum Brown and hazy with with a thin head. Aroma of spices and fruit, with a distinct cherry cough drop note. Some caramel malts and a light hoppiness. Dry and medium bodied.

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

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.

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.

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.

Pours a clean orange-copper color resulting in very little lacing. Very good mouthfeel, with pumpkin taste dominating the barely perceptible spices giving it less a pumpkin pie taste and more a straight up pumpkin beer. Adequate carbonation and the flavor remains for a bit.

Murky amber, thin beige head settling towards a ring, minimal lace. Aroma captures the best elements of pumpkin pie, not just the spices, but the caramelized sugars and earthiness of the pumpkin, too. Great smelling beer. Flavor doesn’t quite live up, abundant cinnamon, cidery amber malts, citrus, the flavors are all there, but not working together. There’s some of that orange juice and toothpaste disharmony going on. Medium body, lively in terms of spices but slightly flat in term of carbonation.

Bottle. 8/15/13. Pours a translucent gold-amber color with a thin, just off-white head. Aroma is nice, rich; pumpkin, vanilla, clove, all spice, cinnamon, touch of sour. Taste is very fresh pumpkins, spices (nutmeg, clove, all spice), some cinnamon, touch of citrus. No lacing. Medium-low carbonation. Slick mouth feel. The idea here is pretty fantastic, using the citrus and the wheat in conjunction with the pumpkin. It produces a fairly elevated pumpkin flavor. Unfortunately, there isn’t much of it. I would like a more intense flavor profile.

OK pumpkin ale with more spices than pumpkin. If you feel like you have to drink something with pumpkin in it this would be fine...then you could move on to a beer that taste good. A one and done beer for me...
