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…

Pour is dark brown with a light tan head. Nose is heavily roasted malt with notes of roasted coffee, hint of vanilla, dark chalky malts. Taste is a touch less roasty, more malt richness with some fudge and a hint of vanilla, fairly clean and no sugars left over. Rich body, not heavy, nice carb, great feel.

Had this on tap at Blackback Pub, was just ok compared to the other HF brews, great still... was an hard to judge this coming off such great brews. Besides its super fresh and classic great body, nothing jumped out to me. Ironically, had i had this amongst other(non HF) brews it would of probably been mind blowing
