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.

Dogbrick (10409) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2016
This brew pours a deep amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt butterscotch and fruit. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, fruit and mild earthy hops. The finish is sweet with a toffee and malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

mmmbeer (1365) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2015
12 oz. bottle on Christmas Eve, served in a shaker- poured a darkened brown with a maroon tint when held to a light source, low carbonation, thick off white head with a solid ring about the vessel and alot of frog eyes. Aroma of nuts, toffee, and a hint of molasses. Hits the mouth with a medium body, feels like a roasted malt on the back end of the tongue, middle has a spot of cream, finish is sweet, nutty, and dry. WOOHOO!- that’s what I wrote in my notebook, it must have been real good!

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark orange red pour with slightly off white head, aroma brought notes of big toast, caramel, toffee, some slight spice, dark cocoa, pine, grass. Taste was a mix of orange, grass, spice into some biscuit, slight toast, caramel, finishing slightly bitter.

Alengrin (3861) - BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2015
Strong brown ale from Michigan, with thin but stable, pale greyish beige head and clear, deep but translucent brown robe with a beautiful glowing vermillion hue. Inviting aroma of mandarin peel, blood orange, chocolate candy, home made caramel, nutmeg, blackcurrant, kahlua, dried forest leaves, candied figs. Pleasantly sweet onset, candied cherry, orange and brown sugar but nothing cloying and in fact quite refreshing thanks to the citrussy quality surrounding it; soft and smooth, somewhat oily mouthfeel, consisting of a lovely, clean caramelly malt sweetness with clear chocolate accent, flowing down the throat with ease and supporting a peppery, citrusy, aromatic and spicy hop bitterness in the end as well as a glow of warming, brandy-like alcohol, which is noticeable even in terms of taste and therefore could have been a bit better hidden. Apart from that, this is a lovely, tasty brew, clean and well-balanced between sweet and bitter, with a delightful warming quality. An ideal autumn beer, glad I picked this one from the cellar on this late October Sunday...

jamaty (1614) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 5, 2015
Bonito marrón oscuro, escasa espuma, tintada pero de buen aspecto. Aroma especiado que deja apreciar también la malta, no dulce, sino seca y tirando a fruto seco. Compleja en boca, y diferente. Licórica y balanceada, y con un lúpulo que parece no beneficiar el carácter malteado, produciendo un sabor diferente en parte afrutado. Decente y bebible para 8 grados, pero no convence del todo.

Bottle. Cloudy amber with short beige head. Aroma is dark fruits, pine, and citrus. Medium body and light carbonation, with some alcohol warmth. Sweet flavor with hints of raisins and licorice, followed by slight bitterness of citrus and pine. Interesting brew.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle, Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Good looking label. Dark brown pour with a small off white head. Nose had notes of choc, caramel and spice alongside a little hoppage. Flavour revealed some sweet malts, dark fruits, earth and piney hop. Lingering dry bitter finish. Interesting and enjoyable stuff.
