3.45/5 rDev -5.7%
Poured from tap into pint at 12south Nashville. Pours a deep seethrough brown with nice looking head. Pretty much no aroma...so I didn't penalize it but its not good.
Taste is pretty boring but not offensive. Just blah...alt like watery malt. Meh
Its very mild and boring...not bad, just boring.
I wouldnt get again.

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.

A - Pours a deep brown with a slight tint of amber, really nice finger of light chocolate colored head, retention is ok, a thin layer remains after several minutes, lacing is ok too.
S - Toasted toffee malts, earthy/woody flavors, slightly chocolaty with some earthy hop notes.
T - Roasty bitter malts and earthy (slightly lemony) hops up front, not dry/hoppy bitter at all initially. Sweet toffee and traces of chocolate malts shine through and the finish is a bit citrusy/almost funky (in a very mild way). Aftertaste is that citrusy/slight funk, quite woody, and fairly bitter from earthy hops. Mildly dry (bitter) aftertaste lingers a decent bit
M - Lighter bodied, pretty well carbonated, very drinkable.
O - Tasty, guzzled 4 or 5 sips at once and am enjoying it more. Not amazing, but decent flavor, lots going on, and very drinkable.

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.

Sampled on tap at Jack of the Wood in Asheville, NC.
A deep, deep amber if not light brown. A nice foamy head. Aroma was mild with biscuit and a hint of brown sugar. Flavor was bready malts with minimal hops. Slightly tart. Not especially complex. A smooth, silky mouthfeel that delivered well from the cask.
English in spirit but not in complexity. A smooth, enjoyable beer nonetheless.
