COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

12oz can from Ed5388, thanks bro-dawg-brah. Poured a lightly hazed dark chocolate brown body, with a smaller creamy beige head. Aroma is sort of meh, notes of sour milk, wet nuts, light chocolate, pencils. Medium body, sort of harsh, medium to stronger carbonation. Flavor is a bit better than the aroma, notes of older dark breads, nuts, oats, dry milk, bark.

seymour (1624) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Poured from can into Geordie Schooner glass, thanks Mike! Opaque reddish brown colour with tan foam, lasting with lace. Malty sweet with noticeable hoppy bitter balance, some English-style earthiness, toast, hint of raisins, plums, cherries, cacao nibs. A little thin, cidery, metallic, but not too bad. Finishes a bit too sweet for me too, but it’s pretty good nonetheless. More complex than Newcastle by far, easy-drinking, good not great.

A hazy reddish hue with strong carbonation that maintains a thin tan head and lacing. The aroma and taste is roasted nuts, cereal, and caramel. It has a very good sweet taste.
