A couple a weeks ago, I took a hiking trip up near Asheville, NC so I drove into town to hunt for some beer. North Carolina has no annoying laws forbidding growlers so I picked up a growler of fresh ESB brewed by Green Man Ales.
It pours a deep orangey copper with a creamy but thin, light tan head. Sheeting lace on the glass. Very fruity and herbal in the nose
Taste is bready and fruity, a well balanced ale with herbal English hops, (Kent Goldings and Fuggles according to the website) offsetting a sweetish, fruity malt. Quite British in character but surprisingly sweet and that sweetness lingers long in the finish and aftertaste.
It's a well crafted ale and certainly enticing enough for me to want to try some more from Green Man the next time I find myself in Asheville.
Serving type: growler

Reddish copper color with a small, but nicely creamy off-white head. Smells of toasted, nutty malts, spicy, earthy hops, and cocoa. Balanced flavor of biscuity malts, chocolaty sweetness, toasted caramel, and some grassy, floral hop bitterness. Medium bodied with a creamy feel thanks to a lower amount of carbonation. Pretty nice little easy drinker here. I've come to appreciate Green Man more over the last couple of years.

Consumed December 26th, 2013 at Harrah's Casino, Cherokee, NC.
Medium amber with reddish/ruby highlights. Minimal head.
Aroma is nutty, roasted malts.
Flavor is almost like a brown ale: toffee, melanoidin, low bitterness. Some light resiny hop character on finish.
Carbonation tingle, medium bodied.
I would drink this again, especially if I see it on tap at a mega-casino! Nice local alternative to the usual BMC fare.
Serving type: on-tap
