This deep colored American Brown Ale is often requested and one of our personal favorites. Many a weekend was spent perfecting this one. Brewed with 2 - row pale and 5 specialty malts, its malty in both flavor and smell. A heap of Cascade and Willamette add to balance this easy drinking ale. Hole up, have a few, and tell us what you think. We’re bettings it’s the best American Brown Ale you’ll ever have.

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

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.

12 ounce can shared by tia and HopTsing at the 22nd Richmond Gathering. Clear dark amber, large foamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of caramel, nuts, apples, band-aid. The taste is green apple, soy, caramel, band-aid, nuts. Thin bodied WAY off.

12 ounce can from shrubber. Thanks! The beer is a darker brown with a khaki colored head of foam. The aroma has milk chocolate and brown sugar notes. More of a sweet brown ale. I get some woody notes as well. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

This is a pretty solid brown ale. Hint of hops with a nice nutty toasted malt backbone. Mild dark chocolate bitterness is also present. Another fine beer from Good People...
