Brewed with 2-Row Pale and 5 Specialty malts, it's malty in both flavor and smell. A heap of Cascade and Willamette add balance to this easy drinking ale. Hole up, have a few, and tell us what you think. We’re bettin’ it’s the best Brown Ale you’ll ever have.

Can handed off by Jim to Bobby at the Bruery and opened by Bobby shortly after.

A: The can was amazingly carbonated, but that could easily have been our fault. Eventually the beer appears under the massive off-white head and is brown in color.

S: There is an underlying green apple note to the beer which sort of mars the experience, but otherwise the nose is good. Chocolate and nutty malts with a nice toffee note to it. Plenty of bread and just a bit of roast.

T: The flavor is (luckily) less affected by the green apple, and the rich maltiness and chocolate flavors are quite good. A touch of roast and coffee, and a really pleasant nuttiness.

M: Medium to full in body with a moderate carbonation.

O: My first beer from Alabama and it was a good one. I look forward to trying more from these guys.

Acquired via trade from barefootbrewer, so a big “Thank You” goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz can into a US tumbler glass.

A: The beer is a medium brown color, with a large beige head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, maple, nuts and some hops.

T: The taste starts out with mildly sweet flavors of maple and caramel. Then some bready flavors of nuts and a hearty malt character follow. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, there are better brown ales available but this is still a decent beer to drink for a while.

Served in a Good People shaker pint because I can, this is on the Top Beers - South list so that's sort of exciting.

Beer is brown and mostly clear, a little darker than expected, walnut, this tan head, low retention, no lacing, low carbonation.

Aroma is nutty, mildly roasty, a little malt.

Beer is medium in body, mildly sweet up front with a nice, mildly bitter finish, bitterness is all grain, no hops. A decent little brown, I might have it again.

A good person sent me some Good People in CANs in support of The CANQuest (TM)! It stands to remind me that I need to renew my FTH membership.

From the CAN: "Legally brewed since 2008". Ha!

The Crack immediately resulted in a mini-eruption of light brown head that just kept fizzing away until I could begin the Glug phase. It was like a puppy that is so excited to see its master that it CANnot calm down. A colleague at work mentioned that he has given up carbonated beverages for Lent and this would top his list if he knew about it. Man, it did not take much coaxing before I had three-plus fingers of rocky light-brown head with decent retention. Beer drinkers get more head, indeed, but this was ridiculous! Once things settled into reasonableness, it looked like fluffy meringue atop the deep-brown ale with garnet highlights and NE-quality clarity. Nose was malty-sweet up front underlain by some grassy hops. Mouthfeel was kind of abrasive thanks to all of the carbonation, but it had a pleasant dark chocolate roastiness to its flavor, which I prefer to sweet, especially in this style. Finish was likewise dark chocolaty with a mild smokiness to boot. Not bad, but not quite my cup of tea, either.

Growler from Gus's in Auburn, AL.

Pours a hazy brown color with a one-finger tan head. The head recedes into a wispy layer on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of strongly toasted - though not quite roasted - malts with good amounts of milk chocolate aromas. As the beer warms very light hints of herbal hops waft out.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Robust toasted malt flavors up front with more roastedness than the smell would intimate are followed by good amounts of milk chocolate flavors. Midway through the sip faint hop flavors enter into things but give way to the malt flavors before a solidly bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a smooth thickness with moderate carbonation.

Drinkability is very good. I finished my glass(es) and could easily have more.

Overall this is a very good American Brown and I wish I could have more access to Good People as I've yet to have even a subpar beer from them. Well worth a shot if you see it around.

Nice to see Good People canning their product now. This one pours a murky brown with a very short head. Smells slightly roasty, with some gentle malt, and a clean bready aroma, as well as just a whiff of earthy bitterness. The taste has more of the same as well as a hint of bubblegum and a bit of a slightly grain sour finish. The hope are more prominent up front and fades toward the end. Could use a little more body and/or hops for an American Brown. Lots of breadiness throughout, and a lingering touch of malty sweetness. A fairly gentle brown, but pleasant enough.

Thanks to the legendary woodychandler for this can. Poured from a 12 oz. can. This beer exploded out of the can resulting with a brown/amberish color with several inches of head. Smell has a bit of malts and hops. Taste is hops up front, some malts kicking in later, just a touch of sweetness at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

12oz can into a Duvel tulip.

A: Opaque mahogany body under a solid inch of creamy tan foam. Great retention and a strong covering of sticky lace. The total lack of clarity is the only thing keeping it from an even higher score.

S: Mmmm. Luscious. Richly toasty, nutty malts are front and center, with some vanilla sweetness and a solid dose of American hops - I'm getting plenty of grapefruit from the Cascade, as well as some grassier, herbal notes from the Willamette. The aroma is round, smooth, complex, and spot on for the style. Amazing job, Good People.

T: Grainy, nutty malts open things up, followed by some caramel sweetness. Bitter, dry, herbal hops finish things off. It's not quite as jaw-droppingly perfect as the aroma (the bitterness comes on without warning, and isn't as well-integrated as the fruity hops in the nose would have suggested), but it's still damn tasty.

M: A little thin and prickly at first, but the ample carbonation provides some nice smoothness after a moment.

O: I'm not the biggest fan of Brown Ales, generally, but this one manages to be both highly drinkable and highly interesting. The malt/hops balance works well, and the aroma is really spectacular. I'll be picking up another couple six-packs before I leave the state.

Cheers!

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.

Another fine Southern treat from unclejedi; this arrives in a 12 oz. can (no date) and gets poured to a standard pint glass.

'Legally Brewed Since 2008'. Label shows some faux weathering; thought my can was old and abused before a closer look reveals that those 'scuffs' are just part of the design.

A: Very 'light' for a 'brown ale' - I've seen ambers/reds with darker coloring. This is a ruddy caramel, pretty foggy clarity-wise. Pretty well-structured carbonation; some streams steady and regular, others more lazy and meandering. Makes me think of The Matrix. Healthy head, over a finger of khaki froth... but not long-lasting. Stripes of foam try admirably to hold to the glass. So what if it's a paler shade of 'brown'? - it's nice-looking otherwise.

S: Hmmm... really not much here. I let the can sit 15 minutes out of the fridge and waited another 5 minutes after the pour to take an initial sniff and... well... it's vaguely malty, nutty. A tiny cocoa sweetness, waning spice and jammy fruit. Just not much else. Not bad, just so weak.

T: Earthy, crusty bread, dark and nutty. A funn(k)y yeast that has a vague tanginess - not the 'tinniness' that sometimes comes with the style, more like 'vinous tart'. That tang makes this a little different and memorable, lending some citrus rind and a little sour grape. Enough caramel and cereal grain otherwise - a bolder and pretty balanced version of the style.

M: Light-medium body, a good carbonation prickle. A fair amount of bitterness in the finish, both from latent hops and dark/dry maltiness.

O: Pretty tasty, but falls short in aroma and (somewhat) in appearance. It's nice to have a canned brown ale (a style I've had plenty over the years, but not one I turn to much of late). Worth a try.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #52 (May 2011):

Dissipating, light tan head lands a thin lacing; hazed rusty brown color. Aromas of light toffee, salt water, maraschino cherry, toasty bread and a vague yeast. Lightish but very creamy mouthfeel. Gritty, biscuity, with toasted husk, chicory and a hint of fermented molasses. Hop bitterness struggles to get through this maze of malt flavor for some balance but prevails eventually. Kiss of ripe fruit. Pretty dry finish, huskiness sort of dominates with a dried hay-like flavor, though does not go overboard. Bit of a toasted malt bomb here—a cleaner finish and perhaps we’d have a stellar beer in our glass. Aside from that, it ends up being a good drink.

Sunday....cooler October day....just finished mowing having a Brown Ale fro the Good People Brewing Co of Birmingham. The appearance is good. Deep clear rich amber with finger thick off white head that is lacing nicely. The smell is mostly maple with hints of roast. The taste is very good, nice sweet malt with hints of roast. It is a dry beer....wonder if rye was used??? comes off pallet nice and clean. The mouthfeel is good as well...can session this with ease. over all it is probably one of the best brown ales I have tried.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a pilsner glass. Stamped 01001A286.

A: A finger of creamy head tops a murkyish, red-brown beer, more red than brown. A wonderful hue in the light.

S: Nutty malts. An unfortunate metallic tinge.

T: Creamy-sweet main body, slightly nutty-bitter-dry on the endtaste. The metallic character found in the nose casts its baleful shadow over the taste as well. Fortunately, it often ignorable. Aside from that, it's really quite nice. An almost floral vanilla flavour is particularly fine.

M: Smooth, swell, and sweet.

O: Good beer. Might be a great one if bottled. I might have one again, but I won't be buying more, unlike Good People's canned IPA which I purchase by case, frequently. Recommended if you want an Alabama brown ale.

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

Poured into a pint glass from a 12ox can.

A - Pours a nice light mahogany brown with some slight copper and amber edges. There is a nice light cream colored head that is about 0.5 inch tall and has some nice dense bubbles to it.

S - Hints of walnuts and almonds with some nice fresh baked bread and some toasty malts. There is some nice roasty malts perceived with some chocolate notes as well.

T & M - Taste starts out with some nice grainy malt and some freshly baked toasty bread. Nice grain profile to this beer. There is some slight nutty notes to it with almonds and some oat notes as well. Slight chocolate sweetness and bitterness is perceived. As the beer warms the nut and roasted malt bread character comes out. It is quite delicious. Awesome brown ale. Good carbonation and some nice hop grassy bitterness on the back end makes this a delicious brew.

O - Delicious brew that was very surprising. Well crafted overall with some great roast and some perfect malt grain profiles. Yum.

A- Murky reddish brown. Thick head disappates down to an inch. Plenty of lacing.
S- Smell is just a touch sour, a bit of toasted malt, and a bit of nuttyness.
T- Toasted bread, roasted pecans, just a touch of green apple that's offputting. Just the ever so slightiest rum type character in the finish.
M- Slightly full, somewhat undercarbed, lending a bit too much heaviness to it given ABV.
O- A quite good brown. It's got a really nice toasty character and a relatively unique to style rum character that I liked.

My very first secreat santa gift from 2011- 12 oz can split with my boyfriend. Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass

A- Body is a nicely translucent light brown hue. Pours with a massive 3 finger or so foamy head. Head fades to 1/2 finger but retains perfectly from there.

S- Hoppy, lots of earthy hops, with a nice sweet caramel malt backbone. A good dose of floral hops is there too.

T- Flavor is very similar to the nose. Slight citus and some floral with a smooth malt background. And a mild bitterness lingers.

M- Medium carbonation and a nice full oily hop body.

O- Overall this is a great brown ale. It is atypical for the style and has a very nice malt hop balance. A very good local to try!

Awesome brown. Medium brown color with a thick white head, nice retention, and sticky seafoam lacing. Aroma is of brown sugar, toffee, and light chocolate with earthy back tones. The taste is full and balanced with brown sugar, toffee, caramel and light chocolate notes. Earthy hops in the background. Very awesome balance and great taste. Nutty notes balance this into a nice malty, chocolate toned drink that has a good sweetness but nowhere near cloying. Excellent beer.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a pint glass. Thanks to RC0032 for bringing this back for me.

Appearance: This pours a full brown color, hazy with a creamy white head. The head retains nicely and leaves a little bit of lace down the sides of the glass.

Smell: Chocolate malt, a bit of coffee, nutty malts, and a bit of peat as well.

Taste: The flavor is very malt forward. Cocoa, hazelnut, and toffee malt up front. A bit of peat and then a soft earthy hop presence. The light bitterness lingers into the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Light tingling carbonation turns creamy for most of each sip. Fairly clean with a soft grainy texture. A mild stickiness is noticeable at the beginning of the sip and a mild oiliness is noticeable at the end.

Overall: To me this is just not that exciting of a style, but I think it was executed well and I am glad to have tried a beer from Good People in Alabama.

12oz can, no date, but a fresh batch. This is WAYYY over-carbonated!!! Pour took forever and the head kept growing and growing. I hear this is just isolated to one batch. Eventually settles down to a light brown cap on a reddish brown body.

Aroma is pretty mild, featuring light bread and toast, some yeast, nutty, grass, hint of caramel, a little fruit. Low to moderate strength at best. Improves slightly as it warms.

Flavor is quite nice, fairly sweet caramel, brown sugar, toffee, bread & toast, nutty, hint of chocolate. Quite a flavorful Brown Ale.

Mouthfeel, after the carbonation bomb settles down, is quite smooth, almost creamy.

Carbonation issues aside, this is a very tasty Brown Ale. Weak aroma hurts, though.

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

served on-tap @ Wilhagan's, Tuscaloosa, AL, into a pint glass

Pours a color that is more red than brown: ochre tones throughout a cherry cola base. More than two fingers of head sat heavy on top of the body. Light creme in color. Lacing was spectacular; notchy all through the drink. Really nice looking.

The aromas seemed pretty much on-par for the style. Nothing stood out as being original or particularly strong. Some browned malt: tiny degrees of chocolate and coffee grounds with a nice roasted nut sort of smell. A faint flourish of steely hops comes across every few whiffs. Nothing poor by any means but pretty average for the style. The score is affected by the diacetyl aromas that become heavy as the beer warms.

The flavors are certainly above average, however. This is a pretty unique brown ale. It tastes mostly like bread crusts with some Cocoa Puffs cereal sprinkled on them. Like the bread chips in a bag of Chex Mix, but specifically the chocolate variety of pre-packaged Chex Mix. Some earthy hops clean up the finish and compel further sips. It is all pretty darn good. As the beer warms, though, I get a stronger sense of diacetyl. The buttery flavor sort of goes with the flavor profile at first, but let this beer get up to room temperature and you will regret it. The diacetyl is the only reason this doesn't get a 4.0 in taste.

Good mouthfeel. The carbonation level seems on-point and the body size is just about perfect. This is a comfortable session candidate in terms of mouthfeel. Also in terms of drinkability; before the diacetyl starts spreading is butter taste over everything this is a nicely quaffable brown ale.

I am sure that this keg is old or that the lines aren't run enough or something. Surely the heavy diacetyl wasn't a mistake made at the brewery. Still, it was present in the aroma and taste of the beer, so I have to account for it. If I find a fresher batch on-tap here in Tuscaloosa then I'll re-review if necessary. For now, my experience with this brown ale is that it is still one of the better brown ales I've ever had. Even despite the diacetyl.
