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 may just be me, but I think this brew is terribly underscored. As a B’ham native it has always been my favorite GPBC product. Easy to find around the local area and a decent price. However, if you like your ales on the citrus or hoppy side, this beer is probably not for you. Nonetheless, give it a try. It is certainly unique for a brown ale.

Cybercat (5165) - Georgia, USA - JUL 7, 2016
Taps clear golden brown with a nice buff head. Aroma features toasted malt, cinnamon, woody hops and nutty notes. Flavor features toasted malt, nutty, cinnamon and subtle hoppy tones for a pleasing ale. Body is a little thin, but fizz is good. Drink brown when in town.

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.

nearbeer (4917) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 18, 2016
12 oz. can. Foggy, chestnut body with a quarter inch of foam. Smells of earthy chocolate toffee, apple, graham cracker and toasted nut. Flavor has lightly tart apple, dark toffee and graham cracker. Hints of wood, toasted pecan, ash and chocolate in the finish balance the big malts quite nicely. Medium body has a mostly smooth, medium carbonation and a delicate balance. Almost seems like a quality Scottish Ale and it’s my favorite of 7 brews from GPBC to date.
