Brew Review: Good People Brown Ale

This weeks brew review features a savory brew from Good People, a local brewery located in the Magic City.  Good people is a small brewery that was established in 2007 and offer a lovely selection of good brews.  If you’re looking for a nice and tasty southern treat, look no further than Brown Ale from Good People.

Good People Brown Ale:

ABV: 5.80%

Serving Type: Can

Appearance: Deep mahogany body with no transparency. Thin tan head that leaves no lacing.

Smell: Nutty, chocolate, caramel, bread with a hint of hop bite.

Taste: The taste starts out with mildly sweet flavors of maple and caramel. Then some bready flavors of nuts and a hearty malt character follow. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

Drinkability: Very drinkable, easy to have more then one

Overall thoughts: Very impressed by this brown ale. Personally I think brown ales are typically underrated, and this one is a great subtle representation of the style. Recommended if you want an Alabama brown ale.

Freshness Rating: 8/10

More brew next week. Until then Stay Fresh My Friends
