3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Unfortunately picked up a bottle that is 11 months old at TJs. Despite that, this is not a bad PA and I imagine fresh it is pretty good value.
Aroma: other than some oxidation which translates to a stale aroma, there are is mild bready sweetness from the malts, and a subtle earthy hop aroma as well
Appearance: Pours a hazy medium amber similar to say a Sierra PA. the head is minimal as is its retention and lacing almost non existent.
Taste: very nice balance between the malts and the earthy hops and their bitterness.
Palate: medium body, with semi rich texture, moderate carbonation and minimal astringency.
Finishes short and dry with a faint but astringency on the palate

12 oz bottle from Tmoney99 from notes. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, light toasted malts, floral, herbal, grapefruit citrus hops with some earthy notes, watery a bit at the finish, ok.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours golden with relatively dense head, nice lacing. Nose light pine, just the slightest touch of passion fruit, some grain. Flavor is simple but quite rich for a session pale: light caramel backed by one-note hop resin - a floral pine note that lasts long into the aftertaste.

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.
