I bought a bomber of Mission Street Brown Ale in a grocery store. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a garnet red color, clear with a creamy beige head.

Smell is sweet as candy, caramel and toffee.

Taste is very good, a sweet malt flavor with mild bitterness.

A creamy smooth mouthfeel.

Over all a very good brown ale.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a Cigar City pint glass.

A: Medium to dark brown - quite dark but nearly clear. One finger's worth of tan head atop medium visible carbonation.

S: Sweet toasted malts, brown malts, mild resinous hops, a bit nutty, and a touch of chocolate.

T: Toasted malts with a hint of chocolate character. Mild resin hop flavor and a moderate hop bitterness at the swallow.

M: Medium to light-bodied, low alcohol presence, and medium carbonation sensation.

O: A solid, drinkable brown ale - but nothing memorable, nor anything I'd seek out.

Poured from a bottle into a 16 oz champaign flute. It has a lovely 2-3 cm tan head which settles down to nice lacing. The color is a lovely medium brown that shows some ruby color when held up to intense light. The aroma is rich and beautiful--malt, ripe fruit, and some hops. The first sip was amazing and blew me away--the flavor is a rich, complex blend of nutty maltiness, balanced hops, a bit of mocha, and some figs. Drinking this at room temperature (68 degrees in the winter) really opens up the rich aroma and flavor. The aftertaste is a delightful mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium thick and creamy. Overall this is an outstanding brown ale--I was really pleased and surprised by it.

A- looks like a black coffee during a red sunset. A nice creamy tan head.

S- Cocoa, brown sugar, coffee, mild roasted malts. A little bitterness behind that. Although a bit airy.

T- Starts with a modest malty roasted chocolate mocha, has a minor hop addition but it doesn't revive this beer much. The flavor in this one starts week and finishes flat on its face.

M- Way too watery for a brown ale. Not enjoyable.

O- Well that was unfortunate. Not too many good things to say about this one.

Clear dark brown with some ruby highlights. Tall light tan head that lasts and puts rings of lace as the head drops.
Smell is rich malts with a hint of mocha.
Taste is roasted malts a bit of mocha and some earthy bitterness from the hops.
Mouthfeel feels thin at first then feels closer to medium bodied. Carbonation is just enough. Finish is a bit sweet initially with a longer lasting medium dry bitter finish.
Overall a good example of the style. Perhaps a bit big for the style which I enjoyed.
