Another great value buy from TJ’s in-house brand. Can’t complain about a crisp, clean, and little spicy session brew--packs a lot of flavor for a low ABV’er. Servings: 12oz bottles.

I like this beer, as it is clearly smooth and has plenty of flavor. However, when trying it side-by-side with the Mission Street IPA, this one lacks the flavor punch I look for in an ale. Still, a good beer.

If I were to rate by looks and smells alone, Mission Street Pale Ale would be damn near perfect. This Pale Ale has a golden-orange shade and a snow white head. Aroma contains grass, cannabis, and sweet malt. The big aroma makes the understated taste a surprising disappointment. Well, maybe disappointment is a bit harsh. Mission Street Pale Ale has little bitterness and would be unlikely to scare away hop shy individuals. While I admire the balance, I want more hops. Still, for the price, you could do a lot worse.

12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into nonic pint. Golden, sightly hazy, moderate white head. Weak nose-- a little hay and citrus. Light body. Fairly crisp. Taste is light-- more citrus. Orange rind. All around drinkable and inoffensive.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle. Clear golden pour, fluffy white head. Nice danky hop aroma with a lot of citrus, bit of diesel, and a hint of sugary malt. Flavor is herbal with citrus, extremely clean brew that I could drink forever.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Piney and citrus hop aroma a bit lemony and earthy. Light but flavorful. A bit of a minty medicinal finish. Descent beer, but almost a little lagerish funk to it as well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s. In the glass, it is clear and golden. Unassuming nose of yeast and hops. Distinctive citrus, floral hop flavor jumps out on a neutral malt base. Pleasant bitterness borders on resinous. Quite dry and light on the palate w/o being watery. Well done. This tasty little pale ale is really a session IPA in disguise.
