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.

Draft at the brewery, served in a taster. Pours a clear orange with a medium off-white head. Notes of leaves, grass, hay, and toasted malts. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Good, but I liked the Buxton marginally better.

Drjohnrock (592) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2014
From 12 ounce bottle purchased at The Veggie Wagon, Carolina Beach, North Carolina, tasted on August 8, 2013. Medium and slightly hazy amber color, very small tan head, aroma of mustiness and firm malt, bittersweet flavor with somewhat intrusive carbonation and chemical notes but even discounting those flaws the taste lacks the character of an ESB. Call it a bitter, perhaps.

Very solid, warm malty, easy going beer. Really feels nice, but a little too light on flavor

Beachmaster (269) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 27, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a light copper color, with a small off-white head which rapidly dissipates. Not much aroma detected. Tastes like a classic ESB, but with a thin mouthfeel and no noticeable hop finish. An OK session beer.

12oz bottle from Lowes in Hickory, NC. Copper pour. Roasty, nutty aroma. Tastes are toasted malt, caramel, coffee, nutty, floral. Not sure how well this matches up within the style, but it’s crisp and tasty in general. 7.2

This is my go to Asheville beer when I want something that is full of flavor but not wanting something that smashes my face. Easy drinking English bitter and a nice malty backbone and subtle, hop aroma and flavor. I haven’t found much difference between bottle and draft so that makes me even happier when drinking it. Good solid beer.

Pours deep amber with a thin white head. Aroma is a bit of citrus zest, honey, and a little bit of hops. Taste is pretty well balanced. Lightly toasted malts, a hint of sweetness, and a little bit of bitterness from the hops. Mouthfeel is smooth and on the lighter side. Might be slightly under-carbonated but overall has a good feel on the palate. The taste and the body is very similar to a brown ale to me. Overall this is a very drinkable beer. It lacks the complexity to really stick out from the crowd but that does not mean that it is not enjoyable. You could easily sit down a drink a few of these in one sitting.
