The Pale Ale from Good People is a good beer. It poured a slightly hazy golden with white head that is leaving a lace. The scent is faint, not much happening. The taste is mostly bitter from start to finish. There is slight malt presence and perhaps some bitter citrus. The m outhfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a sessionable beverage.

No can date, poured into a pint glass

A- pours a hazy golden color with some orange hue, creamy one-finger white head that has great retention long after the pour

S- earthy hop with a touch of pine, slightly metallic aroma

T- moderate piney hops up front with some flowery notes, toasted malt with a hint of bready flavor mid-palate, leading to a dry finish with more pine in he linger

M- medium body with medium prickly carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a dry and crisp finish, good drinkability

O- easy drinking and non-offensive, good pale

The coloring is a little less coppery than the IPA and a whole lot more filtered. The head was like the meringue of a pie with an intense height and a lightly knit knit cluster of bubbles.

The aromas are appropriate with a more malt based structure. The hops tend towards to the floral but it's not particularly piney.

The flavors follow suit with a malt based taste and a light hoppiness. The hop characteristic is a little piney but it has a good hop cone earthiness. The malt is more caramel malt without the real sweetness.

The feel tends to a higher than moderate carbonation but it has little of the metallic tinnieness of some Pale Ales.

Definitely one of my favorite Pale Ales on the market. I love Good People and I've had this beer in cans and on tap. It's good in the can and great on tap. Wonderful light color with light flavor. A great beer on a hot day when you want something to bring your taste buds to life.

Had some on draft at both the J Clyde and the 5 Points Grill. The pint at the J Clyde was not nearly as good as at the 5 Points Grill, due to problems with the carbonation system at the JC. When you have the Pale Ale properly carbonated it is a very tasty beverage indeed - enough to convince me, someone who is not a fan of the style, to have several pints of this in one sitting :)

Smells sweetly floral, hops are the dominant but not dominating flavour, very well balanced taste.
