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…

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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.
