Mission Street resides at the crossroads of quality and value, a place we have called home for more than 40 years. Our award-winning is crafted in small batches using only the finest all-natural hops and malted barley, resulting in a classic brown ale with remarkable flavor and freshness.

Mep3222 (1110) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Nice roasted malt aroma with a bit of cocoa as well. Taste is full flavored and balanced. Cocoa and roasted malt comes through. Solid brown ale.

Ibrew2or3 (7935) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 24, 2013
22oz bomber from Tempe Trader Joe’s pours with a crystal clear amber to ruby red body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up some roasted malts, a bit of nuttiness and little else that I can tell. The Taste has some bright notes of roasted malts, sweetness and nuttiness but this somehow lacks depth and cohesion. To midway and into the finish a mild lemon to lime hoppy tartness comes to the surface. Decent offering.

peteinSD (1446) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle. Dark amber/brown pour with a froth of tan foam. Lightly sweet malt, dry nuts and thin roast, and some minimal hop bitterness on the aroma. Taste is dominated by a mild sweetness before giving way to a thin, dry nutty character and finishing with slight bitterness that mixes with the sweetness. Light, even mouthfeel. Perfectly decent brown albeit definitely on the sweet side of the spectrum . . . and at $2 a bomber a great deal.

PorterPounder (6912) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - Trader Joe’s - 22 oz bomber. Very dark brown pour, thick stick eggshell white colored head, thin coat of lacing. Aroma has some light chocolate accents, a hint of potting soil. Flavor is delightful with some nice chocolate undertones, a hint of potting soil, some hints of licorice and a touch of coffee in the back end. Mouthfeel, while not thin and watery is a bit too thin for the flavor - still a solid brown ale though. Well worth the $2.99 I paid for it!

Aurelius (4920) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2013
22 oz bomber from Trader Joe’s Tallahassee. Good label. Clear, ruddy brown beer with a huge tan head. Fine-grained, chainmail bubbles coat the sides of the glass as you tip it. Cool effect. Sweet, nutty aroma. Foam smells powdery and the hops come forward. Fairly hoppy for a brown, drier than it smells, lightly sweet, very slightly astringent, and a little milky perhaps. Roasty finish musters up what sweetness the beer has. Medium body, maybe even a bit on the lightish side. This was a pretty good value @ $2.99 for a bomber. Right up there with the Two Buck Chuck.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2013
22oz bottle from Trader Joe’s. Bottled 5/17/13. Clear, very dark red color. Thin, light brown head. Few dots of lace. Sweet taste, light bitter bite, spiciness in the finish. Pretty spicy aroma for a brown ale. Medium body. Lightly sticky texture. Lighter carbonation. Caramel malt, some spiciness, sugary syrup. Some light sweet artificial-tasting chocolate, some dark fruit. Too sweet, not very balanced brown ale.

scarletfire65 (1275) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle from Trader Joe’s. Aroma of deeply roasted nuts, milk chocolate, cola. Flavor follows suit - very chocolatey, sweet, and roasty. Nice bitter finish, with notes of cocoa powder. For $2.29, can’t be beat.

DCLawyer (2393) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Bomber->session. Medium brown with thick light tan head. A: caramel malt, nuts, grains. T: roasted and sweet malts, nuts, bread. Some unfortunate metallic tones bring down an otherwise nice brown ale.
