3.15/5  rDev -16.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Dark brown pour - ruby red where the light passes through on the edges - with a thin, soapy head. Aroma of brown sugar, chocolate and even a little bourbon. Tastes like brown bread with raisins, very light coffee roast & bitterness. Warm, fairly boozy finish. Pretty good for a brown ale, but brown ales aren't really the greatest to begin with.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 10/22/2013. Pours slightly hazy ruby brown color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, caramel, toast, brown sugar, chocolate, coffee, light nuttiness, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop and dark/roasted malt notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, brown sugar, toast, cocoa, light coffee, brown bread, light nuttiness, floral, grass, pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of earthy floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, brown sugar, cocoa, brown bread, light coffee, light nuttiness, floral, pine, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of dark/roast malt flavor with moderate hop presence; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice imperial brown ale. All around good balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/roast malt and moderate hop flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

3.33/5  rDev -11.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Tasted 12 November 2013, reviewed from notes.

Pours a mahogany brown, clear. Looks brown, but turns reddish with light behind it. Yellowy-orange head, about half a finger. Decent retention and lacing.

Smell is kinda funny. It's almost in the realm of a black IPA, with a powerfully woody, nutty roast that reminds me of brazil nuts with some char, plus an overlayer of some slightly citrusy herbal hops. An unusual combination.

Taste is a moderately sweet, moderately alcoholic brown ale. It's nutty but very dark; not sweet nuts but dark nuts like walnuts and pasty almonds. Has a slightly chalky bitterness that nut skins sometimes have.

Feel is medium-bulky. Carbonation is rather low. I'd like it to be a bit lighter and a bit more carbonated.

This is an odd beer, which I suppose shouldn't surprise me from Short's. It's like they throw all kinds of stuff in a blender to see if it works, and if it doesn't work they throw some other stuff in a blender. Occasionally they get hits, but often they get oddballs like this one.

Good brew for Raul. I'm not on the top of Mount Vesuvius, I'm not in the Hanging Gardens Of Babylon, but I'm feeling this one well enough that I can close my eyes in the garden section of Home Depot and feel that I am in some unearthly place.

Nice malts, nice caramel, smooth and mellow like a player would want it... Just a good one to have when you're feelin' good.

Ya feel me, my peeps?

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: dark brown color but with a touch of clarity. almost no foamy at all and quickly leaves nothing behind

Smell: roasted malts. some candy sweetness and citrusy hops

Taste: roasted slightly smokey malt taste. hop bitterness but not much taste to the hops. some alcohol.

Mouthfeel: some bitterness and a touch of stickiness. medium body

Overall: I like the hint of sweetness and i wish there was more of it. I don't like the hops and roasty malt combination outside of stouts. Also a little bit weak on flavor for so strong of alcohol

A: Brown in color with ruby edges in the light. Some off-white foam sitting on top, though it is mostly present due to the etched Founders glass I am using.

S: The smell is excellent. I can really pick out many different aromas, a rare thing. Biscuity malt, caramel, soft citrus and floral hop, brown sugar. A delicious aroma indeed.

T: Delicious caramel/toffee biscuity malt profile, sweet. Light floral hop flavor without any bitterness.

M: Surprisingly this is very light bodied. Carbonation is terrific though.

O: This is a phenomenal brown that may become a six-pack purchase for me in the future.

4.33/5  rDev +14.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured a nice 2 finger head. I love the rich amber dark brown clear color. Some lacing and the head settled to a thin ring.

I got more hop and citrus than I expected from the smell. Great fresh dry hopped flavors. Grassy and earthy. My guess is drink this early, ageing may loose the punch of the dry hops.

This one really is growing on me. For a brown it has more hops than expected with the ibu only at 19 you really get hop flavors but not the bitterness. I get caramel and toffee flavor and a mix of the floral and citrus of the hops. I like the lingering aftertaste .

The sweetness is balanced with a clean fresh feel. You do get some lingering stickiness but it's not cloying.

This is more complex than other browns and I liked it better the second time I had it. I like the changes as it warms and it was easy to finish. I would look for this one again. 12-15-2012

I tried it again and I love it even more a year later, it really stands out for me. 11-27-2013

First review, let's see how amateurish it comes off!

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass.

I'll start off by mentioning I am relatively uninitiated in the world of Short's beer. I haven't had much outside of their year round offerings (besides Publican Porter, which is my absolute favorite in the style), and was curious to try Good Humans!

The beer pours nicely with roughly a finger length head. It's bold and dark brown in appearance, almost black like a porter.

It smells of citrusy aromas, some malty goodness, and has a surprisingly hoppy aroma.

The taste was much like the smell, but also had a unique tinge of chocolate, molasses, and brown sugar to accent the citrus. A bit of biscuit and malts were swirling around on the tongue, as the bittersweetness struck my palate. The beer was pretty hoppy, but nothing compared to a normal strength IPA. The ABV was extremely well masked, I could not detect any booziness, which is both surprising and pleasing in a beer at 8% ABV.

The beer is medium bodied, so it enters the mouth with some viscosity. The beer isn't exactly super characteristic in mouthfeel, but it holds it's own without feeling watered down. Overall, very pleasing in the mouth.

With that said, I was more than happy with this beer, definitely one of the best Brown Ales I've had for such a great value ($9.99 a sixer at Champane's Wine Cellars in Warren, Michigan). The bold flavors accented by the hops will satisfy both hop heads and people looking for something to savor alike. I'm definitely going to be jumping on the Short's bandwagon for awhile, and look forward to trying this year's winter variety pack next.

Stay tuned for more reviews yet to come!

I really enjoyed this beer. The color of slightly dark chocolate. Perfect mouthfeel. Not highly carbonated but by no mean thin or flat. This is hoppier than most browns I've had but it's not overdone. Taste is a nice balance of the hops and a mild combo of brown sugar and caramel. I saw the ratings here and didn't have high expectations but this definitely surpasses them.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy dark brown color. There's about one fingers worth of off-white colored head. The head has a nice texture, decent retention, and leaves some nice rings of lacing behind.

S: The hops here are pretty spicy, but a bit faded. Therefore, that leaves the malt to do much of the heavy lifting - in this case, it's a dry and nutty backbone instead of a sweet and fruity one. Just a kiss of dark fruit exists behind the malt/hop mixture. Its aroma doesn't work amazingly, but it does work solidly.

T: Going by the flavor profile, the hops - in their current state - only act as a ballast for the maltiness. It starts with a combination of molasses and a kiss of Centennial hops, and finishes with a decent amount of licorice, and a minor raisiny undercurrent. While not all the flavors (read: the licorice) fully appeal to me, it is a mildly complex, balanced brown ale.

M: The feel is rather thin, with a little bit of lingering sweetness. There isn't much carbonation here, either. Nonetheless, the slender, slightly flat feel gives it great drinkability for 8%.

O: Nothing too special here. Basically, it's just a decent, easy drinking brown ale the does a good job of belying its alcohol content. I wouldn't seek this out, but I'd gladly kill this six pack with minimal effort.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours murky brown with a slight head. No retention, no lace.

This is Shorts for sure, as it has that malty funk that smells like something that is just about to go bad. Once you get past that, toasted malt, cocoa, pumpernickel bread, some toffee. Some sweet bready notes. This works.

A brown ale with a crisp bitter bite. Tastes liked over-browned bread crust. SOme sweetness in the beginning, some caramel notes, but this is literally kicked in the ass by the bitterness of the hops. Nice move, as the malt would have been cloying and overbearing. Finishes both malty and bitter.

Not your typical mushy brown ale. This one has an acid nip to it.

Overall, pretty decent. I'm not sure when Shorts comes to Boston, but I always catch them months later with a few straggling singles in a liquor store I haunt too infrequently as of late. So, when I see it, I grab it. Not a typical brown, and pretty decent.

Thanks to ROBSTARR for sending down this bottle. Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Westbrook pint glass.

A: Ruddy brown, mostly clear, with only a small white head and low visible carbonation. Honestly, not much to look at.

S: Rich brown malts, but without the cardboard aroma I often get from brown malt-heavy beer. Light pine hop aroma (but not much) underlies the malty sweetness.

T: Toasty malts, bready, light citrus and resin hop bitterness, and a bit of nuttiness.

M: Smooth mouthfeel, light to medium body, low carbonation sensation but not absent. Alcohol is well-hidden.

O: This isn't a bad beer, but it sure isn't anything exciting. Glad I tried it once, but I won't seek another out. Quintessentially forgettable.

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, Good Humans is a deep amber-brown color with a very thin, cream colored head. Nose is surprisingly malt forward with hops being barely discernible. Malt nose includes chocolate, caramel, roasted coffee and toasted bread. Hops come through much more in the flavor but are still only to balance the strong malty backbone. Mouthfeel is lighter than expected with a velvety carbonation. Overall a good beer, could be a little stronger on the hops but definitely solid.

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a minimal head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper brown color with good clarity and slow moving bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing on the glass ad the beer was drank.

Smell: Piney and resiny hops, caramel and toffee malt aromas, and some roasted aromas too.

Taste: Hops are there, caramel and roasted hops, with some mild bitterness in the end, and a little hazelnut too.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, slightly tingly bitterness, and a little creamy.

Overall: A nice ABA from a brewery that comes to Boston a few months of the year. Yeah, I'm happy with this one too.

A: Pours a clear and dark brown-reddish beer, with a small off-white head that diminishes quickly. Lacing is minimal.

S: Aromas have caramel malt sweetness as well as earthy and citrus hops; simple but very pleasant.

T: The taste has an initial impression of hop spiciness and then notes of bready malts. The bitterness is moderate and seems just right. The ABV gives a nice touch of alcohol warmth.

M: Body is medium, with an average amount of carbonation. The finish has the sweetness of the malts balanced expertly with the earthy hops.

O: Overall a simple but very satisfying beer; one that I wish I had more of, which is a sign of a great brew!

12 ounce bottle
Served in a nonic pint glass

A - This brew is copper colored with amber highlights. A couple inches of tan head top this beer.

S - At first I noticed milk chocolate and cocoa. Then as I drank it some grassy hops came through.

T - The taste was a similar journey as the aroma. Initially my tastebuds were met with milk chocolate. After I drank a third of the glass some hops started creeping. The finish became slightly bitter and citrusy with the chocolate malt still coming through.

M - It is relatively smooth with the carbonation only pricking the tip of my tongue.

O - This is an interesting beer. I had recalled earlier tastes of this beer having a pronounced hop component. When I first tasted this particular Good Humans I got a ton of chocolate and hop significant hops. As I mentioned earlier, once I finished a third of the beer the hops made their presence known. This is one on the more enjoyable beers that I have had from Shorts.

My dad brought this one back from a recent trip to Michigan. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into my Cigar City pint glass.

A - Pours a nice burnt sienna color, with some deep red tones like a cranberry juice. A small half-finger of fluff appears after the pour. A small amount of visible carbonation at the bottom of the brew. A wall of lacing develops as I drink.

S - The first thing on the nose is a big hop aroma, with some bitter, resiny pine playing a role. Also a bit of an earthy or herbal character. After that, the brown ales roasted malts take the steering wheel, with only a hint of sweetness apparent.

T - Nutty and toasty at the beginning, which transitions into some light coffee roast flavors. There's a bit of sweetness here too, such as a light brown sugar. Finishes with some bitter hops and a roasted note that lingers.

M - A little thin for a brown ale, but with an adequate carbonation level. Dries the mouth out a little too much.

O - An interesting variation on a brown ale, but not necessarily something that I would go out of my way to seek again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a small fizzy head covering that barely exists before disappearing, not too bad for an 8% beer but not great either, slightly hazy dark mahogany slightly chocolate brown color with some ruby light coming through.

Nose is interesting, a blend of brown malts and floral hops. Hops bring some floral, slightly noble like grassy aromas, touch of pine and earthy hops, and a decent malt base, light toasty brown malts, little caramel and hint syrupy, little nutty toffee too.

Taste brings a juicy brown malt right out first, plenty of toffee, nutty, caramel, hint buttery toffee, nice malty base with mild sweetness but mostly dry, almost candy like toffee nutty flavors almost brittle but without the sweetness. Then hops, milder hops, just a touch of bitterness, mostly grassy floral almost noble like hops, just a touch of earthy and faint piney hops. Finish gets bit more bitter, spicy earthy hops lingering, grassy hops as well, semi dry but a little sticky and some buttery toffee and nutty brown malts lingering.

Mouth is med bodied, nice fluffy carb, booze is hidden well.

Overall not bad, I'm surprised by this one. The Short's normal beers don't seem to do anything special and are usually fairly lackluster. And I wasn't expecting a dry hopped brown ale to do anything nice, but this is well balanced, not too bitter, nice profile of both hops and malts that seem to somehow play off each other, since I think they picked the hops and malts well.

no bottle date

A - poured out a small half finger white head that dissipated fast with a dark brown/amberish body that you can not see all the way through. Has a layer of yeast in the bottom so watch out if you do not like the yeast.

S - The smell is rather malty with a bit of roasted quality, along with woody and vanilla notes. Smells sweet and smooth. Can not detect alcohol on this one.

T - The taste is strong with alcohol. Slight roast quality and smooth with some earthy hops. Not a lot redeeming with the taste, it seems the last time I had this I liked it.

M - This is a nice smooth with a full mouth feel. Kinda oily in the mouth.

O - This beer is hot and boozy in my opinion. I usually feel brown ales are easy drinking and smooth as this one seems to be but its just slightly on the boozy side. Not one to gravitate to, but one I liked at one point. For some reason this bottle is not doing it for me. Better luck next time cheers!

12oz bottle. Deep amber with a frothy light mocha head. This retains with a creamy richness, leaving sticky swathes of lacing behind. The aroma smells leafy with green citrus, cocoa and roast all mixing together to give the nose a fresh ripe twang. The taste is fresh ripe citrus with a firm bitterness at its core. Tropical and herbal notes hang on the edges while a malty backbone of cocoa sweetness and roast flavor that leave a touch of char lingering in the finish along with some leftover green bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium with a firm creaminess that spreads out. This is pretty easy going in the mouth overall with just a touch of warmth to the proceedings. This was a more than serviceable take on the hoppy Brown Ale style with a good bit more going on with it than I expected. The really easy drinkability for 8% helped as well. Glad I picked a bottle up.

Nice to see a few new Short's beers hitting the area again around EBF time.

A- 12oz bottled poured into an oversized snifter with a dark brown body. Light tan head forms to about one finger in height and has a bubbly, frothy texture. A ring stays around the top of the beer with big, creamy bubbles. Lace is impressive relative to the small ring present around the beer, thin but plentiful rings.

S- Big brown ale elements and a good hop presence. Roast nuts, hazelnut, toffee, brown sugar, leather, dark fruits and roast malts (some cocoa) make for a good backbone. The hops lend some citrus peel and pine hints.

T- Opens up with toasted nut, cocoa, leather and caramelized sugar notes. Other flavors include raisin, dark fruits, yeast bread, hazelnut sticks out and then there are the hops. The hops are strong for a Brown Ale but still balanced enough not to affect the good malt and yeast flavors. Hop profile to me is mostly citrus juice with some floral and grassy hints. Somewhat buttery but pleasantly so. With time I get a distinct cherry jam, raspberry feel coming to mind for what I just listed as dark fruits, not sure where it comes from, maybe just the overall combo of flavors.

MF- Moderately high carbonation in a body that lends a bit of a silky feel. The overall consistency is just a bit thin/watery to me but just a little. Fairly bitter finish for a Brown Ale.

The mix of hops and brown ale malts works for me but the malt flavors actually are my favorite part of this beer. A good hazel-nutty, leathery and caramel cocoa feel to them, good stuff.

T/M- starts very smokey, some bbq flavors, slightly sweet, some licorice, some dark fruit, all of which is accompanied with a refreshing hoppy bite. Thickness as expected for a brown ale.
O- I love unique beers and this didn't disappoint. I don't really like brown ales but I dig anything that highlights hops. This is a beer that is great to try but I can't see buying a 6 pack. Great beer, very unique, enjoyable. Thanks shorts
