A leftover from a family get together, I poured this with low expectations having had their IPA earlier and found it wanting.

Poured a hazy gold with small head left faded quickly. The smell is pleasant with a light citrus scent, a little grassy, simple but not too bad. The taste is a improvement on the smell, with the citrus being upfront and a nice, semi dry fade. Not very complex, but overall enjoyable.

I would say it's not a great beer hat I would seek out, but for the price it's a winner that I would not turn down. Way to go Trader Joes!

3.49/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pale gold, with a quickly disappearing head of foam and moderate lacing.

Smell: Citrus and malt.

Taste: Malt and citrus.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and dry with a slightly bitter hop aftertaste.

The Verdict: Not bad. Almost more of a hoppy pils. Coincidentally, this is produced by Firestone Walker (even though it’s billed as Steinhaus Brewing), who also makes Pivo Hoppy Pilsner. Don’t confuse the two. Still, this is a decent beer at a decent price. Thier IPA is really starting to grow on me.

This is a good pale ale. It is not world class by any means, but it is certainly drinkable. The flavors have been accurately described here, although I am detecting a bit more fruitiness than others I think, almost blueberry like in a way. It is smooth and tasty, and worth a try in my opinion. I
t is what it is, and is good because of what it is not. The bottle sums this beer up nicely, reading "Mission Street resides at the crossroads of quality and value." Accurate description and definitely a good pale ale.

Unfortunately, this beer is not at all close to what I expected. I usually am pretty happy with the company’s product, but not this time. Starting off, it has a very odd color and smell for a Pale Ale. The aftertaste reminds me of soap, so much that I even tried some in a separate glass. To my dismay, the odd soapy flavor remained. And talk about hops!! Wow, way to bitter. Simple, pass on this one.
