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

Growler thanks to Mac, 11/01/2013. Pours deep earthy brown, frothy white head on the surface, soapy wisps of lacing. Aroma is nutty, mildly sweet roasted brown notes with soft hoppy presence in the background. Taste is earthy, powdered chocolate, touch of toffee with light pine hoppiness tingling the tongue, moderate roast finish, bitter. Medium body, approaching the typical HF creaminess with more texture. Really some nice notes in here that remind me a bit of Everett as well. Very nice.

Growler shared by Lunch. Thanks Paul. The beer is mahogany with a small, bubbly, beige head. The aroma offers dank hops and brown bread rolled together as one, caramel malt, sweet chewy candies. The flavor follows suit. Well balanced and flavorful, with caramel and toffee tones. Highly drinkable. A solid example of the style.

MJGG (945) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2013
Verre au Blackback Pub. Arômes de malts légèrement torréfiés et de noix grillées. Robe brune et relativement limpide, effervescence moyenne et légère dentelle. En bouche, les malts contribuent de belles notes toastées, légèrement caramélisées et chocolatées. Le houblon est également présent et montre un caractère résineux et frais. Texture en bouche relativement mince (surtout pour une bière de HF). Finale relativement délicate et moyennement amère. Une belle Brown Ale!

Des belles notes de verdure. de malt grillé et de noisette laisse présager une brown ale délicatement houblonnée. Le corps est bien malté, confortable et possédé par un savoureux équilibre de biscuits aux pépites de chocolat muni d’un glaçage d’agrume.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 Sampled at the brewery. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of brown and roasted and chocolate malts plus a good amount of floral and citrus hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. Another great HF beer. Edit: Poured from a growler. Pours very dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted, chocolate, and nutty malts plus a nice hoppiness. Flavor a great blend of it all. Great.

JulienHuxley (2939) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2013
Growler. Rich brown red pour, almost like red wine when held up to light. Aroma is rich, lots of toasted grain, burnt caramel, light earthy malt notes. Taste is roasty, lots of toasted grain, chewy malts, spicy/earthy bitterness. Palate is silky, smooth with full body. HF not reinventing the wheel here, but reifying a brown ale very well.

Bottle [750ml] shared with HogTownHarry and GregClow. Pours a very deep orange-amber with an average size semi-lasting frothy beige head. Aroma is quite nutty along with caramel malt, a bit of maple syrup and light hops. Flavour’s the same, very nutty, along with caramel malt and quite a hoppy finish for the style. More hops come through as it warms. Medium bodied. I don’t love Brown Ales but this is a very good one, well done.

Hearty browned grain, hazelnuts, hoppy backbone. Beautiful head and lace. A delicious (and dare I say underrated?!) HF brew.
