Here comes another fantastic brew from arguably San Diego’s oldest brewery. The Mission Brewing brand began in 1913 but was put on hiatus when prohibition began in 1920. It was not until 2007 that the brand was revived. It has since blossomed into one of San Diego’s most successful breweries and most recently has taken over the historic Wonder Bread factory in downtown San Diego. Check out their new spot to try all of their fantastic beers on tap or pick up a bottle from your local store!
Appearance: Pours a deep amber almost bronze color. Has a small creamy head that leaves just a little bit of lacing on the glass as it is enjoyed.
Aroma: Rich and malty, an almost oaty aroma to it. A bit of hops can be sensed on the back end.
Taste: Smooth, tasty, malty goodness that is met with a hint of hops. Slightly oaty in flavor that lends to the smooth and mild taste. Just enough hops to know that they are there, but no bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Mild carbonation level suits the flavors nicely. Slightly sweet at the end with no residual bitterness.
Overall: This is a remarkably smooth brew that would be great for any occasion. Great malt and oat flavor, with just enough hops, to give it a small kick of flavor. No harsh bitterness. Flavors mix well. Smooth from the first sip to the last.
