Pours brown with a thin head. Sweet caramel malt. Toasty and tasty. A light caramel is balanced with a touch of bitterness and lemon. Good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from Beer Army The ESB poured a deep amber with a normal head and modest lacing. The aroma of roasted malts on the nose. The taste of burnt malt greets your taste buds. More malt than hop on the nose and palate. The body is medium to light with average carbonation. This is an interesting beverage to drink. You experience an earthy taste that is intriguing. My first from this Asheville brewer.

Bottle. Very good esb. Nice and malty with a dry hop finish. If you want an ESB, this one is a very good choice.

Bottle. Rich copper color, medium tan head. Toasty malted aroma, caramel, nuts. Medium sweet taste. Medium body, mild bitter very late in the finish. Dry finish, sessionable ale. Pretty good overall.

Pours a pretty amber-mahogany with a fairly thick pale tan head. Aroma has malty, caramel and subtle malty notes. Flavor has a strong malty core plus woody hop and caramel notes, not so bitter. Texture is fizzy, if thin. OK, if not outstanding.

Poured dark caramel brown with a thin, slightly off-white head. Aroma of caramel, soggy bread, light coffee. Flavor is malty sweet with hops shining through late. I prefer a hoppier ESB but this isn’t bad.

Finally! Green man in 12 oz bottles! Pours a hazy copper with thin lacy foam. Aroma of bread, coffee, chocolate, and apple. Great smooth taste with sweet caramel and toffee. Finishes with a bit of roast and even a hint of smokiness. Very drinkable yet complex. Excellent beer in a little seen style in the US craft scene. I love to see well done British styles of beer.

3.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice looking, but little aroma. Flavor is spot on with good hop flavors and supporting malt character. A bit of smokiness that was surprising.

Sampled at the brewpub. Pours a clear deep amber with a gray head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice earthy grain note with a bit of light grass but mainly earthy grains. Flavor is similar with earthy grains ANG grass with a hint of resin and sweetness.
