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.

Pours crystal clear orange/red color, not brown at all, nose is all citrus hops, centennial and cascade, flavor is all tropical fruit hops, its true that the west coast style brown ales can be pretty hop forward... but they’re still brown!! This is not a brown ale, it’s an IPA. There is no roast at all in here, no chocolate, no nut, no brown color... a good ale that is quite tasty but a complete failure of a double brown (add SOME roast... please). I have to rate this as a double brown (would have rated it higher as an IPA) because I’m looking at the bottle and that’s what’s printed on it.

Malty aroma with bread and caramel. A bit if butterscotch and raisin. Slight light brown head. Clear brown color with a touch of red. Taste is sweet with medium body. Average carbonation; nice malty finish. Overall a good, pleasant beer, though a touch simple.

AWISLguy (1525) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle from mikem409, thanks Mike! Pours a muddy brown with an off-white head. Aroma is lightly dark fruity, certainly sweet with brown sugar and caramel. Taste has peat and is very sweet; brown sugar, caramel, some molasses. Medium bodied. Finishes sweetly malty with a touch of late peat. Shrug? Somewhere between a scotch ale and a brown, not great. 13.4

It’s like everything.... But in the same thing... One of those rare moments when it really is good to be human.

A nice mesh of styles. Brown ale meets IPA. Flavors of citrus hops, toffee, caramel and cider. Undertones of oranges, nutmeg and cinnamon. Nicely carbonated.
