Mission St. Pale Ale has a thin, white head, a clear, bubbly, golden appearance, noticeable tiny white specs suspended throughout, and some small amount of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of pale malt, mild citrus, and maybe a kiss of the hops. Taste is the same, with minimal hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is pretty light, and Mission St. Pale Ale finishes mostly dry and easy drinking.

Appearance
One finger thick white head. Average retention. Good lacing. Yellowish golden body. Many small carbonation bubbles.

Smell
Piney citrusy hops. Very faint malt background.

Taste
This is a very well balanced ale. The hops are moderate in strength. They taste of pine and citrus. There is moderate bitterness to the hops. There is also a moderate floral character to them. This beer has a bready malt body that is somewhat sweet. Medium bodied malts to match the medium level of hopping. Drinkable yet flavorful. Excellent.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied. Good carbonation. Hop bitterness and malt sweetness both linger on the palate.

Overall
This is a good beer. $5.99 for a six pack at Trader Joe's?! This is an awesome value. This is a solid, high quality brew. Great balance. Great taste.

*Review finally entered from notebook. Beer consumed/reviewed years ago:
On-tap at Pete’s Restaurant and Brewhouse under the name “Pete’s Midtown Pale”. FW partnered with Pete’s to serve the beers they made under their “Steinhaus” name, which is the name of the brewery they give for the contract brews they provide to Trader Joe’s.

Served with lunch in a damn iced pint glass.
A: The color is clear and deep golden beneath a finger of oily bright white head that faded to a thin collar leaving decent lace.
S: Light bready notes of crackery malt with a hint of citrus and earthy hops.
T: Follows the nose with crackery malt dominating. I get some caramel in the finish, and the aftertaste is full of herbal and leafy hops. Light bitterness with a touch of lemon zest. It’s also a bit old tasting (whether it is or not).
M: Medium-light body, low carbonation but tingly, with a drying finish and slick mouthfeel.
O: Not the greatest pale but it’s pretty straight forward and easy to drink.

Found at Trader Joe's.

Pours a mild golden hue with a frothy white head into my glass. Holds true to the style.

Hops are a cross between citrus and pine. At least to my nose. Has a note of buttery malt as well.

Clean with a good pine bite and bready finish. It could be dialed back but otherwise fits.

More on that bready finish, which is actually short-lived and bogged down by the hops.

Not bad for the style. Reasonably priced as most crafts go for over $6.99 a 6 pack.

This beer is the 5th mystery beer in my Trader Joe's pack. I thought at first glass, it look aesthetically pleasing.

A-I'm drinking this one from the bottle so as usual, I will review the packaging. It is simple with no neck sticker. Quite frankly I think it could be unforgettable.

S-The smell is pleasant and has a typical pale ale scent.

T-Refreshing, crisp, and light.

M-A little empty but quite bubbly on the tongue.

O-The beer is okay and I think I would get it again. It would go great to sip while mowing the lawn or messing around outside.
