Beer Review, Arcadia Jaw-Jacker Ale

Arcadia Jaw-Jacker Ale
Battle Creek, MI
6.0% ABV

Appearance: Transparent reddish-orange body, thin white head that dissipates immediately. Some effervescence. 3.5/5

Smell: Sweet spicy pumpkin aroma, slight malt, hints of dry hops. A nice sweet aroma, welcoming for the beer to come. 4.0/5

Taste: Nice spiced ale. Hints of orange rind and coriander. Maybe some nutmeg? Otherwise a decent pumpkin backbone with a sweet finish. 3.5/5

Mouthfeel: Thin-to-moderate thickness, with a very low amount of carbonation and hops. 3.5/5

Drinkability: Not the greatest pumpkin ever, but definitely quite drinkable. 3.0/5

Overall: 3.55/5
