As much as I love Kern River I'm not really sure about this beer. Very faint pumpkin spice on the nose that quickly turns into sweet malts. Taste is nutmeg and slight cloves for a brief second. Really just tastes like a pale ale that's masquerading as a pumpkin ale. Is this a Sierra Nevada? I really look to Kern for bigger, brighter flavors and this doesn't bring it.
