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…

A-Pours a pretty dark brown. Head is tan. Head leaves sticky lacing.

S-Brown Ales rarely get me excited just after sniffing. This is one of the few Brown Ales I have had that gets me going immediatley. Chocolate, nuts, molasses and roast in excellent harmony and power.

T-The flavor is also pretty delicious. The brown malt delivers with lots of chocolate, brown sugar, molasses, nuts and roast. There is also a pretty noticeable hoppiness in the finish that doesn't overtake the malt and serves as a secondary component.

M-Medium bodied. Creamy feel. Lingering flavors. No alcohol. Surprisingly refreshing.

O-One of the better brown Ales I have come across. Lots to talk about with this one. I love getting to try a Brown Ale with some pop to it. Very well made.
