Shorts - Good Humans

Normally when I try a beer from a brewer that I have not encountered before I like to go in blind, open minded to put it another way. However with this bottle I needed to look up what this beer was as there is no ABV or best before date on the bottle which makes it pretty much illegal to sell firstly I have to trust the bottle shop that this is in date and secondly the brewer..If you are going to put Passion - Humility - Wisdom on the label, how about bothering to also state the ABV ?

A burnt toast aroma on the pour along with toffee and roasted malt.

Good Humans pours a dark murky amber brown with an off-white head. Roasted malt, caramel, piney hops and hazelnuts in the intake while the finish is dry, mildly bitter hoppy and has a warming alcohol. Very nice long aftertaste of toffee and hazelnuts. The mouthfeel is almost chewy. Alcohol does shine through on this but not enough to detract the flavours or the beer in general.

Not the best looking beer once poured but certainly makes up for the lack of looks with taste. Although drinking this 'off-season' I really enjoyed this one. I would have no problem buying or drinking this again, preferably in the darker months sitting by the side of a roaring fire while contemplating no doubt why my football team is doing so crap. Summing up, a very ugly looking beer which after drinking a few you would have no shame to take home to your parents.

This scored a very respectable 8/10 on the 'it would have been 9 if it was not for the ABV bollocks' Beerometer.

Alc : 8%..which they also do not state on their website, lazy humans.
Where to buy CPH : Høkeren, Ravnsborggade 13, Kbh N
