I had the Good People Mumbai Rye on tap at the Mellow Mushroom located at the 5 Points area in Birmingham.

Served in a standard pint, the beer is a chill hazed dark copper with a decent white head. It has nice lacing.

The nose is of light spice and some grains.

The beer leads with some pine based bitterness, a hint of Rye and something earthy in the finish.

The mouth is thinner than I would like but it does make it somewhat sessionable.

I really like Rye beers and this is not a bad take on the style

Poured into a snifter. A slightly hazy amber-orange color with a modest off-white head. On the malty side but with spicy rye notes and not sweet. The hoppy aromas were muted, with some citrus and piney notes. The taste followed the nose with bitter pine, orange pith, and lemon rind all surrounded by a spicy rye blanket. Well-balanced and not sweet. Dry finish.

Served in a pint glass at the brewpub. From notes. Reviewed 23 November 2014.
4/4/3.5/4/3.75
Finger of head. Golden, translucent.
Thai food? Spicy (rye?) with fruit and fantastic hops.
Goodish, but not great. definitely bitter, but with a subtle, tangy finish. Lightly dry. The tang is strange.
Full bodied and hoppy.
Good beer, notably rye-y, but still worthwhile. Would drink again, but not often.

Taste of pine, and a thick mouthfeel. Smooth, but the IBUs are evident. Don't get me wrong this is not a pucker beer, just a delicious taste with a bit more Hops finish. Overall this is a delicious beer, and should be treated if the opportunity arises. I was fortunate enough to be in Birmingham for an evening.
