3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Another delightful ESB out of Asheville and another success from Green Man. On tap down in Cola SC, this ESB pours a dark amber color, reminiscent of maple syrup (the color not the viscosity!) moderate white head, stays frothy. Aroma of caramel malt herbal hops, toffee. Taste is very nutty, malty and also some bitter hops. Medium-bodied, earthy finish, all around just a pleasant and tasty ale. Not quite as good as Oysterhouse's ESB but a close second. I would definitely drink this again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours copper with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of earthy hops, bready malt and some caramel. Body is medium and smooth. Earthy hops, bready and caramel malt and ripe fruit nicely balanced on the palate. Finish is long and spicy. Great brew.

Light toasty smell, taste is a little similar, finishes selzery and watery, one dimensional though

More like a stout than an amber beer. Caramel flavor as well.

This beer will finish and comes through. Nutty taste and the more you can do the more you get to hang.

Growler. Dark copper color with an off-white head that doesn’t stick around. Malty aroma; sweet flavor of caramel with some light hop. Finish is a little heavy. A solid good-drinking beer.

Medium brown with an off white head. Malty toast and bread aroma. Nice caramel flavor on the palate, but not at all sweet. Nice hint of hop bitterness on the finish, just for a moment.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster at the brewery from notes. Pours a clear orange amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor had caramel, grass, hay, a hint of fruit and toasted malts. Light bodied, with somewhat dry mouth feel. Decent, but others were better.
