The American Brown Ale is one of my favorite styles, and this one left a lot to be desired. Great foamy head but no lacing (could be soap in the glass because I would expect some lacing with the initial amount of foam, but it died quickly). Aroma is a little citrusy, some toasted malt, not getting much here. The body is a light for a brown, were they going for a session beer? Flavors are a little caramel but not much other toasted notes. A bit hoppy, not as much as I would like for an American Brown but too much for an English Brown. Citrusy hops, not well balanced, I won’t be coming back to this one. Unfortunate that this is my first of their beers, as I had some friends really talking them up. Have to go see what’s listed as their best. 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 1stRndDraught (10) - Birmingham, USA - APR 30, 2013
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.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear light brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of sweet fruits, sweet malt, roasted nuts. Flavor of sweet fruits especially apple, toffee, and sweet malt. Sweet, light, easy drinking brown ale.

Tap. Pours clear reddish brown, small tan head, great lacing. Aroma of caramel, grassy notes. Flavor is the same, light sweet, minimal bitterness. Light body.

I Love this Brown ale.
, alcohol level is just right, smooth, not too hoppy and its made by a local brewer phaleslu (10555) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2012 12 oz. can from The Fresh Market in Daphne. Pours a cloudy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of toast, banana but bread, leaves, almonds, and tobacco. Flavor of caramel, tobacco, banana but bread, cereal, dried fruits. Light-bodied, with modest carbonation and a leafy mouthfeel. Dry finish. Drinks better straight out of the can.

This brown was one of the hoppest browns I ever drank. Mostly hop in the nose with a nice roast / hop presence in the taste. I think it’s a good brew from Good People Itzjerm (3076) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - OCT 19, 2012

Reddish-brown with an off-white head. It has a sweet, bread aroma that matches the taste. The medium body has a creamy texture, average carbonation, and a dry finish.
