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.

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 (9446) - 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.

More like a stout than an amber beer. Caramel flavor as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg at the brewery, Asheville, 17/02/15. Clear chestnut brown with a moderate off white head. Nose is biscuit, toffee, light fruit. Taste comprises biscuit malt, brown bread, toffee, toasted sugar, grain, light spice. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light bitterings. Ok.

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.
