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.

Pale ales are always hit or miss for me, but I thought this one was hit out if the park! It provides the perfect amount of hops to be pleasurable and tasty but still remains true to the apa style.

Appearance: Hazy/Unfiltered, Golden Corn

Nose: Good waft of hops and a hint of citrus

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation

Taste: Enough hops to remain pleasurable to the hop heads while still remaining true to the style

Overall: One of the best apas Ive ever had. Good People does it right

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

Ever just have a big craving for beer and pizza? On business in Birmingham and looked up the closest good pizza joint that had good reviews and just HOPED they had a good beer to go along.

Lucked out. This is a solid local pale ale. Unfortunately served in a frosted mug but solid head and good lacing over a light yellow body. Light aroma of pine and grassy hops with touch of caramel malt. The flavor is true to the aroma with just enough hop bite to make it pleasant.

Overall, very happy with this beer and would have it again.

A - Pours a golden color with a 2 finger bubbly head. This beer is bubbly!

S - Nice hoppy aroma. Lots of pine sap and grass. Actually smells more like an IPA to me! There is a very faint citrus aroma as well

T - Not nearly as hoppy as the aroma. It has a good solid malty backbone. The hops are the same as the aroma. Mainly pine sap and grass

M - Very slick in the mouth. It finishes dry with a very slight burn

O - Good solid pale ale.Nothing special but very drinkable
