3.45/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Bottled 6/26. Served in Pint glass.

A: Quite Red appearance with a little brown copper. Head retention is nice, forms creamy 1/2 inch thick head if poured properly. The head dissipates to leave a mm of head and very thin lacing. On par head retention for style, but slightly larger bubbles, probably "larger" carbonation too.

A: Somewhat disappointing. Faint hazelnuts and brown sugar. Not much of a cream smell (which I would have liked)

T: Very mellow Brown Ale. Very pleasant roastiness upfront. Opens up a bit to give you some nuttiness and very faint caramel. Bitterness is mild, which is appreciated. Leaves nice nutty after taste with a barely detectable metallic taste.

O: Feels like a West Coast (Firestone Walked made) interpretation of an English-Style Brown. Another percent and a half of ABV would have helped the lack of body and sweetness of this beer. Very impressive 22oz brew for $1.99 @ Trader Joe's. Would buy again, but not my favorite style of beer. Misson Street line of beers offers great taste at great price.

3.48/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is clear reddish brown in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high beige head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a collar around the edge of the glass and some lacing down the sides.
S: Light to moderate aromas of nutty malts are present in the nose; hints of caramel also become noticeable as the beer warms up.
T: The overall taste very much follows the smell and also has subtle hints of roasted malts and a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but seems a little too light for the style and could use a little malts to make it medium-bodied on the mouthfeel.

look: 4.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

A- Clean dark reddish brown
S- Sweet chocolate malt, roasted grain.
T- Standard brown. Too light tasting for a brown. I do pick up on the chocolate undertones and roasted grains, unfortunately just not enough. Needs more complexity in the malts and perhaps a larger more pronounced addition in the hops.
M- Light malt, too "liquid" with not enough texture
O- Run of the mill, average brown ale. I would buy again for the price, but it wont knock your socks off.
