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.

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. It’s not offensive, just not something that makes me want to go back for another sip. Doesn’t 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 don’t 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 don’t 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.

Pours brown with an off white head. Aroma of citrus hops, roasted malt. Sweet malt flavor, caramel with only slight hop flavor. Did really know what a double brown was going to be like.

Bottle thanks to wnoble. Brown pour, with off-white head. Aroma is deffinitely dry hopped, lots of bitter, tropical fruit hops. Flavors of roasted malt, light nuts and fruit, and bitter hops. The tropical fruit is very subtle in the flavor. I am glad that tried it.

Poured from 12oz bottle from Manny57. Aroma is citrus hops and roasted malts. Taste is nutty with nice amount of citrusy hops to balance it out. This had a nice amount of carbonation with small, tight head that left nice lacing on the glass.

This poured a murky medium brown color with a beige head. Aroma was of bittering hops, nuts and roasted malts. Flavor was much the same as the aroma, thick chewy malts, lots of nuts and some bittering citrus hops. I still am not a big fan of india brown ales. I think the nuts and hops just clash for me, but its definitely true to the style.
