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.

Dan’s Bachelor Party Extended Weekend Rating #26 of 90. Tap at Arcadia, shared taster (hands down best taster offering I’ve ever had...a total of 9-3oz pours for $7.99). Pours clear orange. Pumkin, spices and giner nose with flavors that follow. I little bite on the throat, but pretty good overall.

Pours out a clear orange with a small white head that quickly settles around the edge of the glass. Spices maintain a presence in the aroma but aren’t overwhelming. The nutmeg really comes out in the flavor and the spices finish it off. One of the better pumpkin ales I’ve had.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2009 ~ Purchased a 6-pack from Big Z Beverage in Huntington, NY. Pours a hazy orange color with a creamy white head. Cooler temperatures, leaves changing colors, and homemade pumpkin pies are just a few of the things that come to mind when I take a whiff of this beer. Aromas are of pumpkin spices, and it tastes pretty much the way it smells. This was satisfying, and I will have no problems finishing off the other bottles. ~

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-caramel color with a trace of a tan head. The aroma was light spices and fruits with a candied ginger presence dominating. The flavor was tart, spicy and a little bitter with a fruity presence and pervading candied ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. Medium body. Solid.

Well done earthy pumpkin and spice aroma and taste. Big biscuity malt blends well with spices, and finishes with astringency.

Pours a deep copper. Aroma is bold and spicy. Flavor is also spicy. Nice medium-amber maltiness with lots of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Pretty good pumpkin ale.

I don’t really care for pumpkin beers, so this fall beer is right up my alley, because it has the spices of pumpkin pie without the pumpkin. I like this beer because you can tasted the nutmeg and cinnamon without it overpowering the beer and becoming overly sweet. If I want something that tastes like a can of pumpkin pie filling, I’ll eat a can of pumpkin pie filling.

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

Julie says too much nutmeg and allspice there is a bit of a hop bitter bite not really a Julie beer. She gives a 2.0
