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

This is a nice brown ale. On tap at CCB brewpub. Nose is fresh hops, chocolate, some roast, well water. Great. Pour is dark brown, khaki head. Flavor is similar with a big hop presence and tons of roasted malts. Very drinkable and nicely balanced for being so hop heavy compared to other browns.

Growler... Clear dark-mahogany pour with a small, creamy, off-white head. The bouquet is a malty melange of cocoa, vanilla and toasted nuts. Medium-bodied and creamy with mild carbonation. The bittersweet, toasty flavor presnts layers of cocoa and tree nuts. Finishes tangy, roasted and a bit tongue-numbing. Ridiculously nice brown ale. Shaun even found a way to give this one a little viscocity. Not usually one of his strengths. This one pulls up just shy of being world class. Thanks to landhoney for his generosity!

Had on draft at Cigar City Brewpub in Tampa. Poured into pint glass. Moderate to dark brown appearance. Taste is solid, with a bigger hop presence than I was expecting. Nice body that filled out the taste, in contrast to the many brown ales that taste quite thin. As far as brown ales go, this was quite good, and would be in my top ten. When compared against the entire world of beer, however, it's just so so. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brown pour, tan head. Nose is roasted malts, well water. Taste is cocoa, fresh water, fresh hops--much more of a hop profile than I expected, more chocolate. Medium mouthfeel.

RichTheVillan (3485) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2013
Growler from a friend in the US; coca cola brown pour with big luxurious tan head, chocolate and roast malt aroma, chocolate taste with some underlying pine hop, probably the best brown ale I’ve had.

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 (951) - 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.
