bhensonb (12149) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 15, 2010
Bomber from Trader Joes in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear dark ruby amber with a 4 finger foamy beige head. Aromas of mildly harshly roasted malt and mildly milky chocolate. Pretty strong aroma for having mild components. Good aroma. Medium minus body with mild and foamy carbonation. Flavor is nutty! I can taste nut skin. Chocolate mildly shows up after awhile. Browns are not my fave, but this is a pretty good one. Consider the price and it’s amazing. No suggestions for improvement. Drinks well.

JoeinDahlem (1366) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 13, 2010
Sweet, caramel-malty, red-fruity, root-beery nose over a beer that ranges from near-black in the shadows to orange-red in the highlights. Rummy and plummy taste, moderately sweet but lightly bitter for balance, finishing a bit thin and dry. A bit sweet but still pretty easy-drinking.

22oz bottle pours a translucent, deep mahogany brown with a bright white head. Nose is brown sugar, malty, nuts, sweet. Flavor is sweet, malty, light toast, light chocolate. Finish is thin, lightly sweet. For $2.50 it’s not bad.

EricE (1368) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Watery clear brown pour with a light tan head. Not much going on in the aroma. Some toasted malt, nuts, and toffee. Caramel malt flavor with some apple notes. Very light and watery. Nothing special or exciting, but I can’t say there’s anything unpleasant about it.

smooch (238) - Sylvania, Ohio, USA - JUL 10, 2010
A nice flat brown colored pour. Not much of a nose, but a really nice light chocolatey flavor. More toasty malt than most browns I’ve had. Yummy.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Pretty much what you’d expect. Some nice toffee in the nose, maybe just a hint of herbal hops. Taste is a bit astringent, some ice tea and toffee.

22oz bomber from Trader Joe’s. Pours dark red with practically no head. Aroma of piney hops, bread and hints of coffee. Light-medium crisp body. Flavor of light coffee, brown sugar and some light earthy hops. Medium bitter finish. Quite boring brew.

popery (1612) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 29, 2010
A very good brown ale, nutty, malty and smooth. I rather like this beer and am tempted to push my scores up even higher. This beer pours a nice ruby color with a creamy, ecru head. Transparent. The aroma is molasses, caramel, nutty malt, mild prunes, cocoa and a faint citrus hop note. The flavor is nutty and moderately sweet, quite appropriate for the style, in my opinion. The mouthfeel is quite creamy, nearing oatmeal stout territory. For my money, Firestone nailed these two new Mission St. beers. These bottles are excellent values for good, fresh hefe and good, malty brown ale.
