Mission Street Brown Ale

Available at Trader Joe’s via Steinhaus Brewing Company in Paso Robles, CA, Mission Street Brown Ale is medium brown and produces a big, splotchy head.  Not a lot of carbonation is visible,  but it’s not flat by any means.  The bouquet is nutty, yeasty, malty, with additional notes of toasted bread and perfumey hops.  The taste is earthy, similar to old coffee grounds.  It’s thin-bodied and bitter, kind of…I don’t know…not good?  Yeah, it’s not very good.  Far too earthy, almost dirty.  If you like dry finishes, it has one of those.   45/100 Brown Ale
