3.76/5 rDev +2.7%
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.

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

Pours dark amber nearly brown in color and has a pretty big haze to it. Head is about one finger, fizzy and off white. Head has fair retention .
Nose has some rich doughy bready malt forward. There is a faint hazelnut sweetness also present hops are there but light, hard to detect particular aromas, maybe some herbal aromas.
Taste is great. Some more bready malt is forward that fades into a light herbal hop midsection before a slightly doughy malt finishs the beer leaving sone residual sweetness.
Mouthfeel is good, medium body is cut with moderate to high carbonation and leaves it pretty soft and highly drinkable. Very light bitterness lets the malt really come out.
