I finally got to drink a pint of Good People Brown at the J. Clyde. The appearance is very nice, but the head falls fairly quickly. I spoke with someone at J. Clyde about the draft system and they have been having issues with their CO2. The carbonation did not last very long, but I am going to blame the draft system for that. The smell is very nice with a dose of hops and sweet malts. The taste is very good. I was very happy that Good People have created a unique beer. It had a nice and different sweetness to it, not overly sweet, uniquely sweet. Followed by a perfect dose of hops for bittering. Mouthfeel is very nice and the drinkability is excellent. Good People have created themselves a winner in this beer. It is different from most beers in this catagory and is worth seeking out. Cheers to our new Birmingham brewery!

Thanx to zookerman182
Into a mug (also previously had in a pint glass, not much difference):
A: slightly dark brown colored body with a slim one finger white foamy head that dies within about a minute, some nice foamy lacing graces the sides of the glass in a clingy sort of fashion
S: nutty, malty, slight caramel all combined nicely and coming forth strong and sweet
T: mainly nutty and sweet; slightly nutty/caramel malty aftertaste and a dry sort of nutty finish
M: light to medium, sessionable for the most part as an English Brown, carbonation is extremely smooth
O: everything about this tells me this is a well done English Brown ale by an American brewery. Well done Good People, its been a fairly long time since I've had this style done this well by an American brewery, I very much would have this again

Good People Brewing Company's Brown ale is a perfect example of craft brewing. Although this craft brew is located in a beautiful state, which has laws against home brewing, Good People Brewing Company's Brown ale brings home a great tradition is brewing, that is taste. This beer would have to be in the top five greatest tasting Brown ales. The rich, creamy, inviting, and masterful taste of this brew can be described in dreams of all brown ale or nut brown lovers. But with everything there are always some draw backs. The appearance and smell are nothing out of the ordinary and one can see they might have not been thought of in the brewing process. If you can get past the look of this brew, then you are in for a wonderful tasty treat. Then again, the only place to enjoy this brew is in upper Alabama and if your a football fan, nothing is better when watching football, RTR!
