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…

A nice amber brown with a taller head on top. The head lingered for quite awhile
The aroma has a slightly roasted smell, toffee and sweet molasses and sugar. It smelled sweet.
I get mostly malts in this one. Roasted and nutty with some earth tones. Hops are quite lean in the taste but drinks pretty bitter so yeah they're in there.
Finishes smooth and bitter.
I enjoyed the nutty sweetness but could do without bitterness.

Serving type: on-tap

George is one of the more overlooked offerings from HFS, and this 750ml growler was filled 3 weeks ago in Greensboro Bend.

Pours a deep,nearly opaque brown with a tall foamy ecru head that reduces to nothing,lacing only average.

Aroma is filled with roasted malts and coffee along with some balsa wood, with hops certainly present.

Taste is also quite roasty and rich.Deep flavors here and they change as it warms, becoming slightly cedary,some flavors of roasted nuts also lurking in the malty abyss.

Mouthfeel is medium to full, appropriate carbonation, some bitterness and acidity from the roasted flavors.

A very rich and satisfying Brown Ale, though not like one that I've ever tasted before. Definitely worth a try, quite interesting and unique.

Serving type: growler
