A malty amber ale boasting rich toasted and caramel flavors, Green Man ESB is one of our award-winning signature brews. Our blend of authentic British malts and hops creates a nutty aroma, full body, and a sweet finish. Prepare yourself for a truly exceptional interpretation of a traditional English style.

Bottle. Brown body with a frothy, off-white head. Malty aroma of caramel, dusty grain, nuts. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body, watery/sticky texture, lively carbonation. Very little hop flavor. Its heavy-handed malt flavors and sweetness take this beer to someplace nowhere close to an ESB. Style aside, the flavor is jumbled and the mouthfeel is dusty grain, dirty.

chinchill (4338) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2015
12 oz bottle with a bottling date of 29 July 2015. Appearance: clear, dark brown body with a somewhat weak head that still manages to leave a bit of lacing. Aroma: appealing; nutty and malty. Flavor: follows the aroma but with less strength and more toffee than the aroma suggests. Feel: near medium body with medium carbonation. Overall: aromatic but slightly too weak flavored ESB.

A pretty solid ESB. Really malty with a bunch of toffee and caramel. Tried it at the brewery in 2015.

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip pint glass. Thanks Ben! Clear dark amber with a finger of beige head. Aromas of caramel, malt, light toasty notes and biscuit. Tastes of caramel, malt, biscuit, a bit of sweet dark fruit. Medium body with a dry finish. A bit on the sweet side.

Dogbrick (11654) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Sample at the tap room. Hazy brownish-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to a film. Small patches of lace. Aroma of roast malt, caramel and fruit. Light-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, fruit and mild earthy hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

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.

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.
