Notes/Commercial Description:
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…

750ml growler into a NEBCO 668 tulip.

Pours a 1 finger light coffee colored head with moderate retention. Beer is a dark, nearly opaque mahogany. Lacing is stringy and patchy with good stick. Solid.

Nose is roasted malt, walnut and chestnut shell, some caramel, and a touch of molasses sweetness. Surprisingly robust and pretty aromatic. I like this a lot!

Opens nutty. Brown sugar, walnut and chestnut shell and caramel towards the middle. More dark malt flavors float in towards the end. Finishes with a touch of booze and some molasses bittersweetness. Same in the aftertaste. Real rich. Great combination of flavors.

Light bodied with moderate to low carbonation. Slick and smooth in the mouth and goes down slick with the slightest bite. Slightly messy finish with a short, sticky aftertaste. I love it!

I'm actually a huge fan of brown ales in general. However, I have a strong preference towards robust browns that are less roasty with a bigger malt presence. George delivers on all fronts here. Its sweet and not too bitter, with a light feel that is, at the same time, full and very smooth. This is certainly a top tier brown!

On-tap at the Blue Dog in Chalfont PA
Poured with a nice fluffy tan head. Color is dark brown and clear. Left some rings of lace.

Detected coffee, nuts, and some sweetness in the nose.

Really smooth beer. Reminded me of an FBS but lighter in every way. Has coffee, chocolate sweetness, a bit of a hop and a delicious malty, bready backbone.

Medium body with appropriate carbonation.

This is one of the best Brown Ales I've ever had. I'm going to look for more of their beers.

750 mL growler poured into a Teku snifter.

Appearance - Deep amber. A few big bubbles. Nothing on the surface.

Smell - Nutty and chocolatey. Moderately hopped. Nice.

Taste - Hoppier than the nose implies. Nice nutty and chocolate flavor. Simple but nice. Just a bit of bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Rich flavor. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - Quality beer as always. Nothing out of the ordinary but an excellent brown.
