Mission Street Brewery – Mission Street Brown Ale (A private label brew made by Firestone Walker) – 22 oz. bottle poured into an Imperial pint glass. 5.7% abv. Purchased at Trader Joe’s Monrovia, CA.
Appearance: Pours a slightly translucent reddish brown with a cream 1/2 inch head.
Aroma: Herbal euro dry hopping and sweet, light roasted malt.
Taste: Nutty chocolaty roasty malt, finishes nutty with some hop spice. A little bit of cola in there as well.
Mouthfeel: Thin, coating, and modestly carbonated.
Overall: A pretty good brown ale. It’s not usually my bag. An amazing bargain at $2.00 a bomber, and works well with cooking as well.
