Green Man ESB

green-man-esb

Green Man ESB is a lovely malty amber ale from the folks at Green Man Brewery in Asheville, NC. The nose is of toasty, nutty bread. The middle is primarily roasted grain and coffee, so it’s still got a bit of the bitterness that I enjoy in a beer. The finish is mild with further hints of coffee and a bit of pepper. Throughout the flavor isn’t overpowering. It’s a tasty, but unexceptional. A good beer, not a great one.

I give it a 3.9 out of 5.
