solidfunk (6854) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 30, 2012
This is probably the best beer I’ve ever had that’s this low in alcohol. Pours cloudy yellow with good lacing. Smells like hay and dirty farm hops. A little bit bitter, a little grassy. Very full palate. On tap at Farmhouse Tap and Grill.

radagast83 (6795) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Poured from a growler thanks to starrdogg. Poured a really light golden yellow color with a fizzy look and a light white head. Some light malty character to it, some floral notes, and some grassy hop character. Flavor was light hops, with some malt character to it. Sessonable, but that’s about it.

At the risk of sounding like a jerk and getting a lot of flack, and while I love many of the beers from HF, methinks that this beer might not have such a high rating if not for the brewery. Perhaps it’s time for Shaun to secretly brew a few batches under a nom de plume brewery name and see if gets even half the praise some of these entries give.

JaBier (6500) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Sample at the brewery on 7/6/13. Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Aroma of malt and grassy and piney hops. Very clean. Sweet malt flavor with grassy hop accents before a piney finish.

bytemesis (6189) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Growler thanks to 50belair! Pours cloudy golden, medium creamy off-white head with great staying power and nice lacing. Aroma is rich dank grapefruit, passionfruit, pine. Flavor is not quite up to aroma, but still nice, quite light sweet, light bitter, juicy, not harsh. Light body, soft on the palate, a bit watery.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 27, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2013 In short: A wicked hoppy-but-not-bitter aromatic low-abv blonde ale. Fantastic thirst beer.
How: Tap at the brewery, then a full growler the day after, then another full growler the day after the day after. I guess I loved that beer.
The look: Cloudy yellow topped by a small white head.
In long: The highly aromatic nose has pale garden glowers, fresh lemongrass, some bananas, grapefruits, more... Tastes is a slice of freshly baked bread, a few slices of smooth not-yet-ripe yellow bananas, freshly cut lemongrass, some dough, citrus fruits, light piney notes and even a bit of a rustic thing going on. Becomes more and more grassy (sun dried yellowed grass) the more I dink the beer with some tart grapefruits. Bitterness level in the low-medium range and there is a light refreshing tartness. Finish is rather dry and grassy. Just as good as Lawsons Three Penny Especiale that was launched a few months before Walden and only a few miles away from Hill Farmstead and Alchemist, and these two are my now my two best low abv pale ales. Summer was good in Vermont for low abv hoppy thirst beer lovers. Another beer I’d drink every day, I drink so much beer now that I am prescribed pills to help with my failing kidneys and it says “take with plenty of fluids” and “do not take with alcohol” and I have no idea what to do.

Draught @ Hill Farmstead Day, Warpigs, Copenhagen. Pours yellowish with a smooth head. Aroma of juicy fruits, fresh grassy hops, floral notes, citrus and tropical notes. Taste is refreshing, hoppy and fruity with some floral and tropical notes. Finish is crisp, hoppy and juicy fruity with some tropical notes. Pretty refreshing and tasty.

Beerman6686 (6053) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2013
This one poured a yellow color with a white head. Aroma was lots of tropical fruits, some resin and peaches. Flavor was similar, very light grain, big popping tropical hops. Very flavorful for the abv.
