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.

AlabastorJones (814) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 30, 2009
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.

thedm (6045) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 24, 2017
This bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a very softly carbonated body semi-opaque brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was brown ale. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering malt hop aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of nutty brown malt and hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

wlajwl (6597) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 22, 2017
Aroma is piney hops, malts and sugar/mild candy. The flavor is grapefruit, caramel malts, mild earthiness, hops and a bitter/slightly tart/nutty finish.

zubblwump (80) - Michigan, USA - MAR 19, 2017
Murky light brown pour, one finger head. Slightly pungent odor. Malty body, some hints of caramel. I swear I taste overripe banana (?), and there’s a little spiciness too. Not a lot of fizz. It’s unique, but not really my thing.

vyvvy (6310) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 4, 2017
It pours clear brown with an off white head. It has a medium full crisp body. The taste has brown sugar, nuts and some astringency and a bit of earthy spicy hops.

nuplastikk (6104) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 19, 2017
12oz bottle. Unfiltered deep brown body. The hop tone really doesn’t work that well here, giving sort of an oily burnt taste. Doesn’t come together well at all, has a lot of homebrewish characteristics. Shorts might be off my radar if they continue to put out such amateur product.

screigh (700) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 24, 2017
Pours a brown hinting towards red. Thin head with some lacing. Nutty caramel aroma with some hoppiness. A creamy rich malty flavor with some wood and maybe hints of tobacco. Dry finish.
