med brown, very slightly sweet just enough to round it; light to medium bodied, malty, topped with tan foam... very drinkable, but not especially memorable

Nice translucent brown couloir with a nice fluffy beige head.
Carmel, nuts, malt and yeast aromas.
Taste is a same as the aromas with brown sugar after.
Clean, nice carbonation, moist mouth feel.
Served at 40F this is a nice brown ale!

Type: 22-oz. bottle
Glass: 24-oz. plastic tumbler
From: Trader Joe’s in Mission Valley (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $1.99
Purchased: April 3, 2015
Consumed: April 3, 2015
Misc.: Bottled on Feb. 9, 2015 at 8:42 a.m.

Poured a very dark brown murky color with almost four fingers of khaki tan, frothy head. Lots of layered foamy lacing on the sides. Good, thick retention. (Sight - 3.50)

Smelled nutty foam, caramel, light toffee and some candied brown sugar. I think the plastic tumbler is hurting the nose here. (Smell - 3.25)

Tasted a bit better than the nose and slightly more bitter. Got bitter nutty malts, faint roasty malts, caramel, light sugary toffee and plain old barley. (Taste - 3.50)

Medium body. Oily texture. Lively carbonation. Slightly bitter, abrupt finish. Probably had this a bit too cold. (Feel - 3.50)

This was just an OK brown ale, although I must say I didn’t have it under the ideal circumstances and/or drinking glass. But for $1.99, I will certainly try it again. (Overall - 3.50)

So pleased this is back in stock at Trader Joe's. What a stupendous deal at two bucks. My go to brown ale. The Anniversary blend version is even better. My eyes will stay peeled for that.

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.
