From a 12 ounce can; served in a nonic pint glass.
Something was definitely wacky with the carbonation on this beer. When I popped the can, foam started to come up out of the opening. A small pour of about 2 fingers of beer gave me 7 fingers of off-white foamy head. I opened another the next night and got similar results. Color is a bright, dark copper. Clear beer with lots of bubbles seen in the glass. Lacing was good.
Aromas are of caramel in the malts, plus hops smells that are floral and earthy. Taste is bitter, with a little nutty sweetness to counter. This one might seem more of an amber ale than a brown, due to the diminished malt profile.
Mouthfeel was highly carbonated - not a surprise considering what was seen in the pour. Medium body, with an aftertaste that is nicely balanced, but leaning to the hoppy side.
Overall a good beer, despite the over carbonation I got in my 6-pack. Given that they have a brand new canning operation, I'm sure there are tweaks they'll be making to prevent future issues.

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!
