Malt Monday's Beer Review of the Week: Jaw-Jacker Spiced Ale

Arcadia Ale’s Jaw-Jacker Spiced Ale is the next beer in the Oktoberfest/Pumpkin Beer series of seasonal brews.

Spice is the key word here.  This beer has a ton of spice flavor including cinnamon, nutmeg and a hint of cloves.  While not terribly pumpkin flavored, it definitely fits with the overall pumpkin beer vibe.  This beer poured a deep amber despite not having any pumpkin in it at all.  The pour produced little to no foam and left zero lacing on the glass.

I drank my Jaw-Jacker while eating dinner; homemade butternut squash, spinach, turkey bacon and feta pizza.  It complimented the meal but in its entirety it was rather blah.  There was something about this beer I didn’t like and to be honest with you, I didn’t even want to finish it.  I ended up pouring 1/4 of the bottle down the drain and feeling very underwhelmed by this week’s selection.
