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.

Pours a nice mahogany with a frothy tan head.

Not a lot in the nose other than some malt and sour yeast.

Taste is a nice malty punch with caramel and bread notes. If has a nice nutty finish that is left bouncing around your mouth. A very nice brown ale with good flavor.

No freshness date, poured into a pint

A- pours a murky brown creek water color with a small foamy off-white head that reduces to just a bit floating on top

S- husky malt with sweet notes of caramel, chocolate, vanilla and raisin. Light fruity & herbal hop aroma

T- sweet earthy malt with flavors of toffee & chocolate, grainy and husky, light herbal hops with a medicinal-like bitterness that lingers, somewhat unorthodox for a brown ale

M- medium body and carbonation, foamy mouthfeel and finish

O- middle of the road brown, would like to see more of the chocolate/toffee, and the strange medicinal bitterness leaves a strange linger

A - Pours an amber reddish brown with a huge 3.5 finger dark tan head with excelant retention and lacing. The beer is cloudy in appearance

S - Very sweet smelling aroma. Slight caramel and raisins are present with maybe even a slight hint of coffee

T - Not nearly as sweet as it smells. It is actually even slightly bitter on the front. Has a nice caramel and nutty kick to it. Slight roasted coffee bean taste as well

M - On the lighter side of medium. Slick drinking. Very very very smooth. No burn whatsoever

O - extremely enjoyable brown. Great flavor and plenty of it. Sessionable for sure. Ready for another!

Poured into a snifter

A: Mahogany brown, opaque, with a tan half finger head that turns to small bubbles. Decent lacing.

S: Caramel malts, nutty and grainy.

T: Those nuts slide in with a sweet caramel fullness. Smooth and malty. A slight hop bite on the finish. Reminds me a lot of southern pecan.

M: medium with medium, frothy carbonation.

O: Very impressed with Good People. Especially this Brown. A very sessionable ale with rich full taste that's easy going down.
