This is my first offering from Good People. Their brown ale pours a deep caramel with a ruby tinge. Not much head to speak of and no lacing. Smell is not overpowering. I mainly pick up notes of honey. Mouthfeel is awesome. It just feels "right." Not really sure how to describe it better. Taste is well balanced. Upfront there are some very sweet notes of malt and syrup. The finish is well balanced with some bitter hops, but in both cases they are mild. This would make a great session beer. very drinkable, and very tasty. Good People: you done good!!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can, poured into a shaker. The aroma is a mild, malty caramel with a bit of yeast funk and a light spend coffee bean note. Itís a murky brown (can conditioned?) beer with a tan, soft soapy foam head the exhibits good retention and lace. The taste is a medium sweet complimented by a light bitter. The texture is thin with fuzzy carbonation and a light body. Notes of caramel and espresso are most noted with a finish thatís clean with a dry, hops resin quality. The aftertaste clean and chalky with resin.

Can. Clear, "soda pop brown" with a medium, light tan almost off white head. Hints of nutty grains and a nice hint of floral smelling hops. Taste was a nice balanced flavor with a roasted grain flavor and a refreshing,touch of hop, finish.

12 oz can from shrubber85 through phaleslu. Pours a clear caramel brown color witha medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel malts, herbal tea, mild citrus, light toast, mild earthy notes to the finish, hops seem faded at the finish, ok, but nothing to revisit.
