COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Good Humans was created to showcase one of Briess Malting Company’s new malt varieties. Originally planned as a one-time thing, it quickly became one of our big successes. Good Humans is a Double Brown Ale made with Carabrown Malt, and then dry hopped with Simcoe hops. The brew has sweet malty esters that are met by huge toasted caramel and toffee flavors. The finish is dry with a bouquet of hops.

Nephilium (1345) - Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2012
This starts off with an interesting pine hop aroma. Pours a deep ruby red, with a quickly fading light tan head. The flavor is different, there’s a strange combination between the roasted brown notes, and the piney hop notes. There’s a bit of alcohol heat noticeable. This is a medium bodied beer. I’m not quite sure how I feel about this one... it’s something that may grow on me, at the present I’m not overly sold on it.

12oz bottle from Beer Baron. Pours hazy light brown with light tan head. Aromas of citrus, light pine, little nut, and some caramel malts. Nice hoppy brown. Always works well when done right.

Sammy (8527) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2011
Fresh bottle from Champagne’s Cellar. This tastes a lot more hoppy than 19 ibu. More or less neutral aroma. Crowning white head on Brownish body with tons of lace at the end of a very drinkable brew. Grapefruit citrus taste, some herbal - lemongrass? A little sting on the palate.

Johnsense (778) - - DEC 29, 2011
Something different here - brown pour, 1 finger of head. Good lacing. Aroma of hops, dark nuts, roasted malt. Taste is more bitter than the aroma - Roasted mlats, toffee, fairly tart as well due to the hopping. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Fairly easy drinking. Hopefully they got their bottling issues finally under control.

arkurzynski (1497) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Bottle courtesy of mikem409. Brown in color. Herbally hops and roasted/toasted malt. Light toasted malt and thin hopping. Fairly light and thin on the palate with generic bitter hop finish.

Onslow (1149) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Clear medium / dark brown brew with small head, ample lacing. Striking aroma of sweet malts, earth, grassy hops, spice. Taste is sweet malt at the start transitioning to a wonderfully complex blend of eathy tasts, spice, and a final flourish of complex bitter, with grassy tones dominating. Smooth as satisfying palatt. A fine, fine brew.

onceblind (4014) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2011
GABF 2011. Clear tawny light brown with minimal head. Beautiful aroma of chocolaty malts and a dry grassy hop tone. Flavor is nutty and light chocolate with a dark cereal grain tone paired with a grassy dry hop presence. Very balanced, bittersweet and unique.
