12oz can into a Duvel tulip.

A: Clear pale orange-amber body under an inch of thick, frothy off-white head. Great retention and lacing. Lovely.

S: All hops, with a mixture of spicy, herbal, and piney notes. Simple and enjoyable.

T: More balanced here, with some lightly sweet, biscuity malt joining the spicy, piney hops. Fruitiness toward the back end, and a cleanly bitter aftertaste. Straightforward; good.

M: Fairly lively carbonation in a medium body. Pleasant.

O: Really good APA, and a nice refreshing choice to find in a can. It's not as exciting as some other GPBC beers, but it made a great companion on an Alabama disc golf course.

Cheers!

So excited to see some Good People beers in the Nashville market

A - Perfect lacy head. Clear amber hue

S - Yeast, flint, peppery, vegetal but not earthy

T - Mineraly acridness. Good hop/yeast/malt balane, but the bitterness is a little toothpaste like or carbolic.

M - Nice and active carbonation, light body, very drinkable and refreshing

I think this is a solid example of a session, and can't wait to grab some and head to the fuckin lake!

Served on tap at J. Alexander's in Birmingham, AL on 5/1/13 into a pilsner glass. The beer pours a burnt orange with good bright color to it. There is some slight chill haze that does not completely clear before the beer is consumed. Head is about 1cm with a nice bright white color and leave fair lacing on the glass. The haze reduces the light penetration, but overall it is good. The smell is quite bready, but has some good, bright citrus notes of oranges as well as some nice flower notes as well to give the hops a good presence in the beer. The taste is clean, smooth and well balanced. There is a pronounced bitterness that does a good job of balancing a sweet malt. The malt is sweet, featuring some caramel malt flavors as well as bread and biscuit flavors. The hops are definitely full on orange citrus. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, this is a very well done pale ale. The hops are pretty heavy, but balanced very well with the malts of the beer.

Tasted On: 04-28-2013
Freshness: Canned 01-31-2013
Packaging: 12 oz. can
Glassware: Mug
Purchased: 6-pack from Star Market, Huntsville AL

A: Nice sized head sites on a copper-colored beer that is clear and bright on the first pour and then has some haze on the final pour. Excellent head retention but not much in the way of lacing.

S: Aromas have a pale malt bready sweetness plus grassy hop smells, but are overall not very strong.

T: Pretty dry beer with the bitterness of the piney hops being the dominant flavor. The bittering seems spot-on for this American pale ale.

M: Body is medium and carbonation hits the high end of the spectrum. The finish is hoppy and dry, but the malts show up to bring about some balance.

O: Overall a no-frills and tasty pale ale from my home state.
