COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Good Humans was created to showcase one of Briess Malting Companyís 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.

Bottle: † Holy piss is that one malty ass ashy type earthy Brown Ale! † Big malty/grainy/earthy nose... somewhat sweet too. † Super Imperial Brown, oh yeah! † Wished they toned down on the earthiness, but oddly enough because this beer has some good amount of sweetness it kinda works. † Wow... yeah, big time lingering earth and soil. † Its like drinking a Brown Ale that has filtered through a tree trunk!   Oh yeah, its hoppy too!

Traded bottle. Not even sure what to say about this beer because it blurs so many lines. Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights, a medium tan head and spotty lacing. The aroma is strong/tart oranges, sweet hops and sweet malt plus some spice. The flavor start with a tart tang and then finishes with some darker malt bitterness. Pretty interesting and Iím still trying to figure it out...

Reviewed from notes. Pours a nice caramel brown color bordering on chestnut. Nice white head and a bit of lacing. The nose is really nice, with some sweet and roasted brown malts along with some nice piney, floral, and earthy hops. Really love the concept, as this seems to be done differently than the typical hoppy brown. The taste scales back a bit with some slight bitterness, roast, and slightly-sweet malt. Good body and carbonation with a nice level of bitterness. Drinks quite well and Iím glad that put this into bottles. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-25-2010

Pours dark brown with some light brown foam atop. Nose is definitely hoppy, light grass, fruits, gentle caramel malts, breads. Taste is moderately sweet but balanced. Full body and creamy smooth with light carbonation. Just slight alcohol presence in the aftertaste. Overall a pleasant twist on a brown.

Bottle from whole foods. Pours dark brown redish small head. sweet aroma. Nice lace remains. cloying, sweetness, tart, warming. Not a good balance or finish though. Itís not offensive, just not something that makes me want to go back for another sip. Doesnít really taste like a brown ale to me--was hoping for some carmel, brown sugar and good rounded flavor.

A big thanks to PhiDelt for this extra...12 oz bottle into my Narke tulip. Dark brown pour with a nice tan head, good retention and lacing...The aroma is really, lots of clean fresh hops, a little earthy dirt, and coffee...The taste is really pretty nice, lots of flavor, coffee undertones throughout, some light peanuts, and dirt as well. I normally donít like browns but this is really really good and flavorful. The feel is pretty good. Overall, a really nice new take on a brown ale, worth a shot for sure.

Via trade with rayl101. (We donít get Shorts around here.) Dry hopping dominates the aroma, earthy, citrusy and peach hops to be exact. Light funk too (???). The appearance is opaque deep brown, light tan head. The flavor is sour, almost funky, earthy, hoppy...again the dry hopping dominates. Under this is caramel, nuts, chocolate. The body is medium to medium/thick. The finish is wierd earthy and resiny hops. Wierd but interesting. Thanks, Kevin.
