reviewed from notes on one of my trips through asheville, i spent the better part of the day sampling green man ales throughout; served straight from the tap into a pint glass.

another fine cask ale from greenman.pours out a nice hazelnut brown color with a smooth even head of off white that settled down quickly, leaving a smooth and even bit of lacing.

aroma is loaded with caramel, hints of earthy malts and a nice touch of light, herbal grasses that come together quite nicelyl. smooth and creamy body has that perfect cask feel that lets the brown sugar and earthy hops really pop om the tonuqe and leave a smoooh, clean finish

overall this was really nicely done and j would not hesitate to go for it again.

Ahh my first cask-conditioned ale.
On-tap at Jack of the Wood in Asheville NC
Light hazy brown with some gold hues when held up to the light. Nice creamy head that had good retention and excellent lacing that formed stripes on my glass.
The aroma was pretty mild: caramel, and some bitterness, but really not much there.
The flavor was pretty par for a brown ale until the end. Caramel, brown sugar and hints of coffee. The finish was bitter. This is the most bitter brown ale that I've had. It had a little of an IPA twang in the finish and aftertaste.
I think the cask=conditioning made a big difference in the mouthfeel. It was very smooth and creamy.
This is a drinkable brown ale that was inhanced by the cask-conditioning. I would like to try it again from a keg to compare. Overall a fine offering from Green Man Brewing.

This beer was a fair cask ale. I thought it had a sweet caramel taste. The smell was of brown suger and caramel. There was a deffinate hop bitterness in the aftertaste. I could go for this beer again. The sweetness lasted a while in the aftertaste. As a cask, it was par.

The beer arrived on the bar clear deep amber with an off-white low and lasting head which hung around to lace the glass.

The aroma was roasty and toasty with a very strong coffee impression. The aroma was fruity as well as being grainy and husky.

The flavor was strong coffee coupled with a toasty and roasty aspect. The bittering was high enough to keep any sweetness from caramel in the beer from breaking through.

The finish was dry, almost bone dry, with a lasting coffee character long into the aftertaste and beyond. The body was medium light with a low level of carbonation. A bit too dry to be a great beer. Carl mentioned that he might tweak it a bit, let's hope he mashes higher or adds some caramel malts. Not really a brown, but certainly nowhere near being a porter.

Pint at Dirty Jack's.
