I liked this beer on tap at Jack of the Wood ok, but having it cask-conditioned at Brewgrass has changed my life!
Regarding the appearance, it pours pure foam into the glass before settling into a shimmering raw umber. It sits poised with good posture, laced with a delicate doily of white foam.
As it approaches the nose, an aroma of freshly-cracked roasted barley awakens and caresses the olfactory. This flows seamlessly into a melange of fresh hops and a nostalgic hint of summer meadows untainted by industrialism.
The taste is creamy-smooth, roasty, and above all mellow: mellow like the quiet sage who only speaks once a month, but when his mouth opens pure poetic wisdom spouts forth.
As it tickles the tongue and continues its journey, it leaves a calling-card: more mellowness, richly smooth. I could make sweet love to this brew all night (or day!) long.
Overall: Have I mentioned yet that I think I'm in love?

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.

3.11/5 rDev -14.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3
Appearance: a deep red, almost blood red if it wasn't so clear. Just a touch of an off white head. Pretty clear with just a touch of haze
Smell: sweetness. Fruity slightly caramel sweetness. No hop aroma but you know the hops are there balancing the sweetness.
Taste: opens up with fruit. Sweetness is always present as it moves towards caramel. A bitterness is apparent as the sweetness kicks off but it doesn't leave muc flavor
Mouthfeel: light and kind of insignificant
Overall: pretty drinkable but just missing enough to not be good. The sweetness is fought off by the hops but still win by a landslide. Almost too sweet
