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

I’m a lover of brown ales, and I’m not sure if it’s due to the fact this was a canned version of this beer, but just not a very good beer. The aroma (malty as described) is very promising, but disappointed in everything else overall. I would like to think a tapped / bottled version of this beer would be better.

Big fan of this brown. The taste and aroma have a nice roasty/sour note. It's good year round but especially in the fall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reddish brown out of the can with a big foamy tan head. Sweet cereal malt nose. Strong roasted grain and some puffed cereal taste with a bit of tea, toast and a bit of spice. The hops bloom in the finish as a nice bitter balance. Nice example of a style that can be rather dull.

BMMillsy (1371) - Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Can from Adam from trade. Pours dark reddish to brown color with a little light showing through and a one finger off white to light khaki head. Aroma of sweet malts, dark fruits, some light grassy hops, smells like a malty pale ale. Flavor is some bock late, dark fruit, a bit of lightly biting hop at the end. Then there's a strange heavy metallic finish that ruins what seems to be otherwise very nice flavors. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Not bad.

Cybercat (3332) - Georgia, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Pours an appetizing chestnut with a thick golden-buff head that leaves good lacing.aroma delights with caramel, roast malt, molasses, and cloves notes. Lip-smacking flavor is a little sweet but not too much; notes of caramel, cloves, toasted malt, and a little molasses dance across the taste buds.smooth texture is firm and fairly lively. Good people brew good beer.

2011 backlog. 12oz can courtesy of jzzbassman. Thanks Monte! Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a huge head. It took almost 15 minutes for it to reside. The nose is roasted nuts, caramel and faint chocolate. The taste is the same with some citrus hops in the finish. Medium prickly mouthfeel due to the carbonation. Overall a nice beer. I was afraid of infection but there were no off flavors. 3.2
