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

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2013
750ml swing-top growler shared with blankboy and GregClow, via JerCraigs. Deep clear brick red, decent creamy/foamy tan lasting head. Just right aroma - nutty, lightly lactic, dry, not much alcohol - taste follows, nutty, lightly herbal, not at all sweet or nougaty. Solid body, a little gritty (in a good way), modest carbonation, average malty finish. Really good.

Sperine (283) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2013
On tap at Capone's in Norristown, PA. Do I just not have a taste for brown ales? I feel like it is a mix of types that just doesn't work. Maybe it was just the beers I had during this KBS event. Maybe it was because I tried then after KBS. So many questions.

Goût léger-moyen amer de houblon herbeux aux notes citriques avec des notes de chocolat et des traces de fumée (fumée de bois) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de malt rôti doux et sucré avec des notes de caramel toffee terreux et brûlé ainsi que des traces de pain grillé puis en finale l’amertume de houblon se fait plus herbeuse avec des petites notes résineuses ainsi qu’avec un léger goût de noix et de café.

ben4321 (3750) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2013
Location: Draft at The Growler, 4/10/13

Aroma: The aroma has a nice mix of pine hops, roasted malts, toffee, and caramel
Appearance: This one pours a brown color with a beige head that leaves some drippy lace
Flavor: The flavor is medium-plus malty, balanced by a light-medium hop bitterness
Palate: It has a medium-plus body, a smooth feel, and a lengthy, somewhat dry finish
Overall Impression: This is a pretty darn good brown. The hops and the malts work well together to provide a good balanced flavor and feel. It might not be quite up to the level of some of the HF beers, but that’s no insult, that is quite a high standard.

TheEpeeist (3272) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2013
On tap at Capones. Barely clear cola brown with a perky beige head. Nose is coffee, brown sugar, molasses and faint orange peel. Creamy mouthfeel with a soft buzz. Taste is oats. coffee, sassafras, raisin and citrus peel. A lovely mellow brown ale with just enough roast for boldness and hops for contrast.

Damico (2452) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2013
Pours unclear dark chestnut brown with a big lacey tan head. Aroma is subtle, bringing lightly sweet pure malts and a hint of the hops. Flavor balances the brown ale malts and hops well, not too sweet or malty and no hop bite for sure. The flavors work well together on an excellent full body, which I seem to always to from this brewery, and this one did not disappoint.
