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…

This is truly a brown ale. Probably the best brown ale I'll ever taste, but at the end of the day it is a brown ale. Based off the description, I was hoping this would be a hop forward version, but it's very true to style. Nutty malt dominated the flavor, and the hops round everything out. Hazy brown in appearance, with cascading bubbles rising to the surface. About a finger of fluffy white head when poured and the mouth feel, with the amount of carb in this beer, really helped to push the flavor. Smelled like every other brown ale. Not a huge fan of this style, but based off of all the brown ales I've had, this was by far the best tasting.
