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…

On-tap at Hill Farmstead. Reviewed while waiting in line for growler fills. Consumed on 11/2. Review written from notes.

A - Light brown with a purplish hue. Pour yielded ~1 finger head. Light lacing as liquid receded. No sediment. Moderate carbonation.

S - Not very fragrant. Light black tea.

T - Not very complex. Some sour black tea, but the flavor was somewhat light.

M - As with all HF products, mouthfeel is superior. Light bodied. Very crisp and clean with good carbonation.

O - Smell and taste were a little underwhelming, but mouthfeel was very nice. Tried it because I was at the brewery and the opportunity presented itself.

Growler shared by Lunch. Thanks Paul.

The beer is mahogany with a small, bubbly, beige head. The aroma offers dank hops and brown bread rolled together as one, caramel malt, sweet chewy candies. The flavor follows suit. Well balanced and flavorful, with caramel and toffee tones. Highly drinkable. A solid example of the style.

Growler. Pours a brown with beige head. Very aromatic brown ale. I get decadent nuts and burnt toast with some light earthy hops. Taste is a nice showcase of malts with nuts and caramel. Some light bitterness. Palate is on the lgiht side. Very well executed brown ale and as good as it can be for me. I do prefer Shaun hoppy offerinf by a mile though
