#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. polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - NOV 24, 2007
12oz bottle. Aroma is malty and spicy. Hazy medium amber body with an average off-white foamy head that mostly diminished. No lacing. Flavor is close to an amber ale but with some autum spice, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon. Palate is light-medium bodied, watery, and soft carbonation. One of my favorite autum ales. Smooth and quite drinkable. jeremyd365 (124) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Poured a thickish, dark coppery with a slight tinted head. It smelled very spicy of pumpkin and perhaps cinnamon. It seems moderately carbonated and has a decent body. It’s finish is great--very spiced but not over the top. A great seasonal and another great beer from Arcadia. I would definitely have this one again.

I just got this as part of a pick six at my local shop. It pours a clear dark, almost reddish brown. On the nose, you definitely get the spices listed on the bottle, very much a fall-time beer. The flavor is sweet, with a bit of sourness on the finish, but very tasty, and very balanced. I think this be at least an 85 overall.

Served on tap at Arcadia Brewing Company. Appearance is a rich amber hue. Flavors and aromas are heavy with pumking spice, nutmeg and cinnamon predominantly. This is a nice fall beer that doesn’t taste muddle like some. The spices come through clearly and are not over done and they ride on a nice crisp mouth.

herbs, crisp, mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm good beer! Jakeyb (24) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 13, 2013
I...love this beer. Few things make me think of fall in Michigan more than Jaw Jacker. Head is creamy but almost non-existent. Color is beautiful red amber. Aroma makes me think of pumpkin pie...lots of nutmeg, though with a slightly crisp apple. Taste? Wow...buttery cinnamon and nutmeg, with just enough carbonation and hops to be crisp and refreshing. Not too complex, but very well balanced. Cheers!
Note: this is a pumpkin SPICED beer, NOT a pumpkin beer, nor does it claim to be anywhere on the bottle. The bottle says "ale with spices added (cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg)." If you're looking for a pumpkin beer, search elsewhere. If you're looking for a damn tasty and refreshing fall brew, open a bottle already!

Probably one of if not the best pumpkin spice ale. So smooth and drinkable would buy this again

aroma of a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste is a nice cinnamon sugar with a bit of a spice aftertaste. One of the better pumpkin beers. Steve2256 (15) - Lathrup Village, Michigan, USA - OCT 25, 2014
I like this seasonal beer. My other fav is Dogfish Head Punkin. If you enjoy a pumpkin ale you should enjoy this flavor packed beer from the D. Clive and other seasonal spices are very prevalent. Enjoy. Cheers! - Steve
