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… 6% ALC/VOL 15.5º P

From notes. Taster at the source. Pours amber brown big beige head. Aroma of dirt and smoke. Taste caramel, mineral, earth, dark smoked malts. Not my favorite from HFS.

On tap at the brewery. Dark brown pour with a kaki head. Enticing dark roasted malt aromas. Somewhat bitter with earthy roasted malt, tangy black coffee, and baker’s chocolate highlights. Good body and mouthfeel.

On tap at blackback (from prior notes): Pours dark brown with a thin white / tan head. Aroma of caramel, roasted malt, toffee, earth, dry leaves. Taste is similar, but with a nice balance of hops on the back end to even out the sweeter malts. This is en exciting brown ale... you can’t say that about many browns.

Served on-tap at TJ’s.

A - Pours deep brown bordering on black with a nice one finger tall off white head, quickly dissipating down to a light film, leaving thin sheets of lace on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of dark roasted malts, plenty of hop bitterness, chocolate, toasted nuts, toffee, caramel and molasses.

T - Starts off with a mix of chocolate and dark roasted malts quickly being joined by the mild hop bitterness, molasses, caramel, toffee, a bit of dark fruit, toasted nuts and dulled mineral earth. Finish is a touch sweet with plenty of dark roast, lingering long after the finish.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Dark, slightly hoppy feel from start to finish.

O - A solid brown ale. The hops mesh well with the base flavors, allowing it to still be drinkable while still having lots of flavor. Great to revisit this one after a few years.

Sample @ RBWG, Asheville. Brown pour with a small head. Dark roasted malts. Tilled earth. Chocolate glazed donuts. The flavor has a distinct accent of anise and licorice. Dark roasted cocoa and old wood closet. Medium body, supple and smooth. Solid, but not to the level of HF’s hoppy stuff.

Bottle sample during RBWG Friday night tasting. Pours cola brown in color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, chocolate, earthy hops, a splash of resin, this is not an average brown ale, very tasty. Another solid brew from these guys.

Growler from kfarrell7, thanks a bunch. Beautiful dark chestnut body with a large offwhite head leaving extremely nice lacings. Caramel, nuts, coffee, chocolate, light hops, dark fruit. Oily texture. Soft to medium carbonation. Smooth and round.

Luk_ (238) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2014
Growler consumed fresh in october 2013. Pours a brown with beige head. Very aromatic brown ale. I get decadent nuts and burnt toast with some light earthy hops. Taste is a nice showcase of malts with nuts and caramel. Some light bitterness. Palate is on the light side. Very well executed brown ale and as good as it can be for me. I do prefer Shaun’s hoppy offering by a mile though.

En fût au Prohibition Pig. Couleur acajou foncée presque opaque, mousse beige ayant une bonne tenue. Arôme de malt grillé, voir caramélisé, café, agrumes. Goût de malt grillé, noisette, café, houblon résineux. Carbonatation moyenne, corps moyen, texture ample.

Pours a thick brown/red hue, thick tan head. Aroma is toffee, chocolate, coffee grind, sweet malt. Taste is full of dark malt, bitter and sweet chocolate, light hop. Med full body, real smooth. Great execution of the style.
