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.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2013 One of the best tasting brown ale’s that I’ve tried. Has a well balanced taste, slightly sweet and nutty. Nice aroma. Very drinkable.

Cybercat (3341) - 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.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2009 Initially tried at the Magic City Brewfest and subsequently on draft. Quite simply one of the best examples of the style I have ever had the pleasure of drinking. Strong caramel maltiness balanced nicely by good hoppiness, with both flavours being in a nice balance making this a pleasure to drink.

On tap at the brewery, pours a dark brown with a 2" tan head. Nose is malt and hops, taste is the same. This is not your average brown ale. Maltiness is very well balanced with a slight hoppy bitterness. Another great brew from Good People!

Can. Pours light brown with thin off-white head. Aroma of fruits and malt. Flavor of malt, nuts and a fruity sweetness. Light beer that goes down easy. A decent cheap beer.

Had on draft @ J. Clyde during the FTH bill passing celebration. A - Pours a medium brown with a nice head and good lacing. S - Very inviting smells of Malty/caramel/light chocolate aromas just a notch above floral hops. T - Extremely flavorful beer. A tad more balanced than the smell but still leans in the malt direction. Flavors of caramel, chocolate, slightly burnt toast, light citrus, and flowers. Flavor is sweet but finishes dry enough as to not leave a sugar coating feeling in mouth. M - Nice full mouthfeel for a session <6% beer. D - One could drink a one after another after another after another of this beer. I certainly did. I generally drink hoppier beers but this one is a pleasure to drink. Very nice and makes me really wish I could get their stuff in a bottle.

mojoman (158) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Outta the can. One of the best brown ales I have ever had. Hoppy for a brown; sweet flavor with great nose, taste, and aftertaste. One of my favorite beers of the past year. (And I’ve only remembered to rate about 3 percent of those consumed!) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Received in trade from GPHarris, thanks for the opportunity! Pours a light shade of brown, or a dark shade of copper with a decent ivory head that dissipates to a cap and leaves spotty lace. Smells of toffee and brown sugar, a hint of chocolate and a touch of butterscotch. Very clean sweet malty aroma with a hint of earthy hops deep underneath. Taste is toffee brown sugar malts with a hint of chocolate and caramel. Sweet and malty. Creamy smooth mouthfeel, moderate level of carbonation, medium body. This is a nice little session ale. There’s enough flavor here to keep it interesting and light enough to have a couple.

What a nutty bitch! The can was a surprise, but I bought these because I couldn’t take bottles on the beach. Aroma was actually delicious average carbonation. Full taste, malty & bitter, not hoppy. Quiet aftertaste, very drinkable
