Beer Review - Arcadia Brewing Company Jaw-Jacker.

Arcadia Brewing Company - Jaw-Jacker
Beer Type: Herbed/Spiced Ale - 6.00% ABV

Appearance: 12oz brown bottle with the spooky man eating pumpkin in a field with a scarecrow and bats! Very Halloween. Beer pours a pumpkiny-orange color with a thin beige head.  

Smell: Spices! Something sour! No "pumpkin" exactly but lots of assertive spice and malt aromas.        

First Drink: Cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and a bunch of spices with some bitter hops and malt coming through.   

Mouthfeel: Kinda thin but also sharply carbonated? If that makes sense?        

Last Drink: The spices are still dominating but I get the hints of pumpkin pie too.           

Drinkability: I don't love this beer by itself but I do like it mixed with other dark beers. 

Notes: Not a bad pumpkin/fall brew and it's great mixed with Loch Down (Loch-Jacker) from Arcadia or Old Chub from Oskar Blues (Chub-Jacker).             

Verdict: 3 out of 5. Good enough to get you in the mood.
