Screw-top growler received via Growling at the Moon from jmarsh123. Thanks for the local, Jeremy, a new brewery to me.

First steinful pours with a 1/4" eggshell head, over the slightly cloudy coppery amber brew. Head holds on, what there is, with very nice etched lace. Aroma is spices and fresh hops.

Taste starts moderately sweet, comes on spiced in the middle, and then quickly sees a coup mounted by the piney and citrus hops, which hold power solidly to and through the close. Mouthfeel is smooth, possibly a bit undercarbonated, with great drinkability. Glad to have this one. Cheers to GATM!

Had a pint on tap at People's. Beer was brewed for their 2nd anniversary.

Pours a clear copper hue with a 1-1.5 finger white creamy head.

Smells similar to a pale ale with rye. A touch of bready malt along with citrus and earthy hops plus a little bit of a spicy twang from rye.

Starts out with a bright citrus and rye spice. Some earthy hops come out a bit more in the back end and it finishes bitter and dry.

Fairly creamy for a relatively low ABV with spot on carbonation levels.

Nothing spectacular, but a real easy drinker. I'll definitely get this again if they rebrew it.

People's celebrates their second anniversary by brewing... a low strength rye pale? Hmm. Okay, to each his own.

Pretty copper-colored pour with a nice head. Smells of a little bit of rye tang atop a malt-heavy APA. Smells of sweet barley, spritely rye, and small little bit of citrus hops.

Tastes more bitter than the aroma had led me to anticipate, though it's still very crisp and light for the style. Hops and fruit esters start things off, moving quickly into bitter, earthen malt and ending on rye tang. Well balanced, but it seems almost like there's something missing. I can't put my finger on what it is, exactly, but for some reason things don't quite click.

Picked up a growler of this new brew on growler fill wednesday down at the brewery for only 9 bucks. Can't beat that. Poured into my FFF 12oz pint.

Growler opens up with a promising hiss. This has been sitting in my fridge for about 7 hours.

Pours a clouded copper hue. A bit of haze. A perfect quarter inch white head. frothy top.

Aromas starts off sweet with some nice bready malts and candied belgian sugars. creme brulee, tangerines, metal, citrus hops, and rye bread crusts.

Taste is heavy on the rye and bitter on the backend. sweet hops and spice. smooth and creamy. This is very impressive. I'm even digging the carbonation in this one. This will be my new go-to-growler from people. good job on this one.
