Notes: 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 with Centennial, Cascade, and a touch of Columbus.

This variation was conditioned with Kieni coffee from our friends at Coffee Collective in Copenhagen.

Poured from a growler filled 4 days ago, into the test glass.
A - Beautiful dark mahogany color, gentle carbonation yields a loose knit off white froth. Cirrus style lacing clings to the glass wall throughout the experience.
S - Roast malts, cocoa , blackberry. Coffee notes are nuanced, like holding a palm full of lightly roasted beans, Plum meets cracked green pepper, with a touch again of cocoa. Earthy hop notes complete a really nice aromatic.
T - Dark toast, a touch of tobacco, gently roasted coffee, a bit of orange peel, and a hint of smoke
M - Medium in body, just enough carbonation, dry feel throughout, finish is roasty and delightful. Lingering elements include delicate coffee, earthy grains
O - A wonderful variant on a favorite brown ale. As is usually the case with HFB, the offering takes time to measure, experience. The use of Kenya source beans, adds cocoa and blackberry in the best ways. The texture light and dry without impeding on the lovely base. A side by side with different coffee's would make for a great tasting exercise
