3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 22oz. A clear-looking brown beer with a dense, light beige head leaving some lacings. The aroma is quite nutty, with roasted malts, caramel and some dark chocolate. Quite dry on the palate, with a plesant level of carbonation. Full body. There’s caramel, nuts and a decent bitterness in the flavor, lasting for a good while. A pretty decent brown ale, well worth a sip or three. 130821

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
7/03/2010: Mission St. Brown Ale... Aroma: Dark bread with a suggestion of coffee. Appearance: Dark amber to brown in color; clean appearance; thin beige foam on the surface. Flavor: Weak nuttiness; toasted bread crust; date-like sweetness; cocoa-dryness; out of place fruity quality; nothing really stands out. Palate: Medium-light; watery. Overall: WEAK; disappointing and quite boring.
Sample at Trader Joe’s in Cincinnati, Ohio. Rating #146 for this beer.

Bottle. Thanks SJ. Some nice nice notes of roasted, burnt malts and nuts. The finish was roast and caramel. It was ok. The blend could have been better.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2013 Good brown ale that is priced at a bargain. Taste and aroma is a little light and mouthfeel is a little thin but overall better then the Anniversary ale and worth buying again for the price.
