Served in draft at Mellow Mushroom Knoxville. A solid APA. Nice aroma, good flavor. It is certainly more fruity and floral than citrus or pine. Nice balance of hops and malt. Pretty clean finish and a very easy drinker. My first taste of good people and it's good stuff.

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.

Draft pour into what appears to be a type of Pilsner glass.

Good People's pale pours pretty cloudy, with a kind of muddy golden color. It has a pretty weak aroma, with just a hint of the malt and hop character. Fortunately, the taste and feel are much better than the look and smell. There are some really nice citrus notes and a subtle malt that shows mostly in the aftertaste. It has what I consider a perfect level of carbonation for the style, and leaves a nice flavor in my mouth. Overall, a solid pale that could be strengthened with some filtering and a little more aroma hops.

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!
