Humans Singing in the Rain : Aroma & Taste
Humans Singing in the Rain poured out a hazy golden yellow-orange colour with a thin white head that disappeared to a few bubbles around the edge. The aroma began with a dank, resinous one, that was followed up with some tropical pineapple notes. However, as Humans Singing in the Rain warmed up, there was an oxidised aroma of wet cardboard and some peach phenols present – neither were welcome at all. Perhaps the bottle was old or that the hops had faded but it made Humans Singing in the Rain off-putting.
The body began with a smooth bitterness that came with some dank, resinous notes, but once again, the oxidised wet cardboard flavour became more apparent as Humans Singing in the Rain warmed up. The peachy phenol in the nose was also found in the body, and made Humans Singing in the Rain resemble some kind of basic homebrew beer. A shame really as I had enjoyed other efforts from Human Beer before but I couldn’t finish this one.
Humans Singing in the Rain : The Bottom Line
Humans Singing in the Rain was pretty much left unfinished due to the oxidised flavour and peachy phenolic flavour in the body.
