From Notes. Bomber into a pint glass.

Kern River was one I hadn’t had in the past and was really looking forward to trying. It pours a really nice hazy orange color with a thin foamy head, very inviting. The smell is really nice, its all pumpkin with just a hint of spice. The flavor follows the nose, loads of sweet pumpkin up front with a nice spice laden finish. I come from the midwest where fall is a real season, but Kern River has captured that season in a bottle.

Verdict: Like the bottle says. So good it’s scary.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

22oz into a tulip.

A: Clear gold with a large white head.

S: Light pumpkin flesh and pie spice in the nose. Some graininess.

T: Taste is bready with mild pumpkin flavor. The allspice is there, but it's restrained. A little bit of crisp hop bitterness. Essentially an American blonde ale with some mild pumpkin and spice flavors.

M: Light-bodied with zingy carbonation.

O: The pumpkin flavor here is pretty nice, but I think that it would work better with a maltier base beer.
