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.

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.

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 (1225) - 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 (4843) - 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.

12oz bottle-thanks to jtclockwork for sharing–pours a tan head and dark brown color. Aroma is pine/earthy, cocoa-medium malt. Taste is initially light pine that carries through to finish. Earthy, cocoa-medium malt. Interesting, doesn’t quite work.

nbutler11 (1267) - Wiesbaden, Hesse, GERMANY - JUL 14, 2011
Bottle from daknole - thanks! Pours a ruddy brown color with a trim beige head. Smells of hops and toffee. Tastes of fruity hops initially, bitters in the mid, and finishes with sweet malt. Nice!

egajdzis (5458) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2011
Hazy light brown color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, floral hops, roast, nuts, toffee malts, and light coffee. Taste of caramel, nuts, vanilla, citrus, cardboard, and light hop bitterness.

purchased on my trip to michigan. pretty nice when a stranger looks at what you have and says you have good taste in beer. still yet to be seen. but this beer is dark amber in color with nice offwhite head. lacing lingers for as long as you like. aroma is definitely nutbrown and hops. the sweetness of the malt on the first taste and i was sold this is a solid nutbrown ale that has been dry hopped. the malt texture is sweet but not sticky sweet like some i have had in the past. i actually do get an alochol burn on the end but in a good way..worth the venture and the cost for this beer.

12oz bottle. INFECTED BOTTLE! I tried to see past the sour funk of it, but it was just a little too intense. I did however get some of hop presence in there but the malts were overshadowed by the sour stink and funk. I ended up draining the last quarter of the bottle. Hopefully my next encounter will be better.
