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…

Huzzah! My 100th reviewed beer!

A:
Pours an impenetrable blackish brown with a creamy tan head sticks around just about as good as you could hope for. Great retention; good lacing.

S:
Nutty caramel. Rich and sweet (but not sweet, if that makes sense).

T:
Round, rich and nutty. Chocolate, hazelnut, earth and the tiniest touch of slightly medicinal hop flavors at the end to offset it all. Fabulous.

M:
Creamy, light carbonation, medium body. Rich, round, coats your mouth, but isn’t too sticky.

O:
Absolutely stunning and amazing. Super complex but everything about this beer is really clearly delineated. You can taste exactly how well-crafted it is as you notice each individual component and are clearly able to see them as part of the whole. Craft beer at its finest, by which I mean, it is an interesting take on a brown which simultaneously sticks to the style while violating every expectation.
Decadent but drinkable. One of the finest beers I have ever had. Worth searching high and low for.
