Visited J. Clyde's in Birmingham based on research from Beer Advocate. Wanted to try some of the brews offered by Good People and they had five on tap. The Mumbai Rye, great name, poured a clear amber color with a nice head and fantastic sticky lacing all the way down the glass. The scent was big hop that dominate the smell. Earthy, spicy, with slight citrus was present. Taste included rye spiciness at the start, but the hops take over the flavor and leave with nice bitterness. Very enjoyable and distinct hops flavor. The mouthfeel is very nice, beer had full body. I could enjoy a couple of these without issue.

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.

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

(Had on cask at The Nook's (Huntsville, AL) third anniversary party.)

Poured a bright orange, very odd for the usually more subdued copper/amber pale ales; very little head and no lacing. Very hop cloying scent, huge citrus and slight grassy, but with no malt backing. Same for the flavor; had a huge hop flavor up front with a cloying citrus hop aftertaste without enough body to mellow it out. Went down smooth, but very sub-par for a cask ale.

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.

32 ounce growler -> Highlands Brewing snifter

A - medium to dark amber with a foamy one finger head that is the color of lemon meringue. Retention is basically limited to a thin ring and there is a moderate amount of lacing.

S - very bready, with some pine, and floral notes as well.

T - the caramel malts contain a lemon like sourness giving way to a big rye bready finish.

M - nice and thick with decent levels of carbonation.

O - If you can get this stuff by all means do. It isn't canned yet, but it is worth seeking out.

Growler, big thanks to Stacey & Michael from Huntsville for sharing!

Pours clear amber with a two finger off white head that leaves a bunch of spotty and drippy lacing and holds a good cap.

Hoppy aroma of pine, citrus, grassy & floral with a shot of rye to go along with it, very good strength.

Flavor is more pine, citrus fruit and rind, very nice spicy rye kick, a dash of caramel malt sweetness, followed by moderate bitterness, dry, lingering finish.

Mouthfeel is medium, almost creamy, low to medium carbonation.

One of the better Rye Beers I've had and a great hop kick to play along with it. My first Good People brew and I'm quite impressed!
