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!

A- Pours a hazy golden orange. One finger, white head that leaves a nice amount of lacing.

S- Light malts and some sweetness. Maybe some pilsener in there?

T- A great sessionable beer that would be great anytime but especially on a hot day.

M- Perfect carb and slightly slick.

D- Super Crushable!

Solid pale ale. It's now my go to fridge beer. As an aside, makes a great turbo shandy w/mikes Harder lemonade for a change of pace.

12 oz can served in a Tervis.
The body is hazy, pale amber. It's topped with a durable, creamy white head that leaves excellent lacing.
Slightly dank and grassy, but more herbal mix of hops. Above average hoppiness for style.

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.

Aroma was great, fruity hops.
Flavor was kinda bland to me.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is sweet malt. The taste is a light malt flavor with some citrus. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer.

Pours an effervescent gold with 2+ fingers of pearl colored head. Good head retention & lacing

S: Grassy, grainy, a touch of white grape

T: Sweet breadyness, grassyness, grainy bitterness up front. More sweet breadyness, a little lemon as this warms, plus dryness. Finishes dry, a little grassy & lemony

MF: Medium body, crisp carbonation, pretty good balance

Pretty easy to drink, not a great PA, but solid

Pours a pale (obviously) and crystal clear like golden yellow with active bubbles stemming from the bottom of the glass and a finger of bubbly foam.

Freshly toasted grains, a bit of citrus pith, and a slightly corny sweetness.

Citrus fruits of orange and lemon play about, but are held in check by the slight corn sweetness and biscuity malt backbone.

Light-bodied, medium-high carbonation, crisp, balanced, easy drinking.

Overall, I just happened to get this on draft while on a road trip through the Southeast US and while I'm not the biggest fan, it was certainly a well balanced and easy (too easy) drinking beer. This would be a fantastic beer for a day of fishing.
