Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: cosmicevan on 10-27-2011

George was our grandfather’s brother, and Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to him and his 13 siblings.

George is our American Brown Ale. Hopped, rightfully so, with Centennial, Cascade, and a touch of Columbus…

Beautiful dark brown brew, creamy beige head with great retention and lacing.

Hoppy and roasty aroma, balanced and inviting.

Flavor follows: bitter and roasty, but smooth. Coffee notes and extremely bitter chocolate, almost like Baker's. Balanced with earthy, almost spicy hops with a lasting hint of citrus peel.

Extremely lively, medium full feel; smooth, with a very long, semi-dry, bitter finish.

Fantastic brown ale, reminds me of a lighter but more bitter Everett.

Nice, smooth, interesting flavors going on that are hard to identify for me. At 68 I don't always discern those tastes. Overall a very drinkable beer. Very glad I bought 6 the other day!!!!
