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

Bottle at RBWG 2014, thanks. Pours a clear brown with an amber hue and a grayish head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has earthy dark grains and a hint of pine bitterness. Flavor has sweet chocolate with a bit of dark grains and a hint of earthiness and grass.

Draft. Brown pour with tan head. Brown nutty head. Nutty and roasted malts, some hints of other malts. Brown ale done right but still boring.

RBWG14 Trip Rating #59. Shared by Leighton at the Friday Night Downtown Inn Bottle Share. Pours a clear dark brown color with a thin frothy tan head. Aroma of dark brown malts, clay, roasted malts, herbal and green hops. The taste is caramel malts, herbal hops and chocolate. Medium bodied.

Pours a nice dark brown with a thin beige head that leaves good lacing. Nose is nicely balanced between roasted malt (chocolate, nuts) and hops. Taste is almost dry with nice dark chocolate and coffee flavors along distinct nutty notes. Definitely bitter but that is not the main focus here. Body is fuller than your usual brown ale and mouthfeel really smooth with a well mastered level of carbonation. Really nice!

Growler at RBWG. Pours brown off white head. Nose and taste of toasted nuts, coffee and hoppy pine. Medium body.

RickTheRick (378) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 9, 2014
La George a des caractéristiques qui se rapprochent plus d’un stout avec ses fortes notes de torréfaction au nez et en bouche. Brune très foncée ne moussant que très peu, une forte présence de houblons donne un kick incroyable en bouche, mais n’atténue pas le goût fort agréable de noisettes. Bien maltée et bien ronde, cette bière est presque parfaite, j’en voudrais plein!

adnielsen (9108) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Bottle @ RBWG Fart Share. Pours a brown appearance with a light brown head. Somewhat piney, spicy hoppy, chocolate, a touch nutty aroma. Creamy mouth feel. Moderately bitter. Nice toasted malty. Petes pretty good.

DrSilverworm (6416) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Sample from a 750ml flip top. Mostly clear color. Thin off-white head. Dot or two of lace. Bigger citrusy c-hop for a brown. Nice hoppy brown. I like a hoppy brown. Good earthy chocolatey malt. "It’s Toasted.". Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Nice mild zest. I want to look for a reason to not like HF. But this is an awesome, sort of hoppy brown ale. No way to not admit that. Great stuff, yet not over the top in any way.

Pour is dark brown with a light tan head. Nose is heavily roasted malt with notes of roasted coffee, hint of vanilla, dark chalky malts. Taste is a touch less roasty, more malt richness with some fudge and a hint of vanilla, fairly clean and no sugars left over. Rich body, not heavy, nice carb, great feel.
