Kern River Brewing Company – Pumpkin Ale
As I write this review it’s Halloween 2012, so it feels appropriate that this is about a pumpkin ale. This was also my first beer from Kern River Brewing Company (KRBC, hence forth) and I always get excited when I try out a new brewery. It’s always even better when I try a new brewery and don’t get disappointed, and KRBC didn’t disappoint. This pumpkin ale has some nice fall spice flavors and is very sweet. The pumpkin is certainly present but it is more on the subtle side than on the “in your face” side. If you’ve ever wondered what pumpkin pie would taste like in liquid form, then you’re going to want to grab one of these bottles.
Well done KRBC, well done.
