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 tap at the brewery. Pours dark brown to almost black with a creamy, off-white, lasting and lacing head. Smooth toffee roasted malty with a good bitter counterbalancing. Yet a slight bit too bitter into the far finish leaving more bitterness than toasted malt in the balance.

Opaque dark brown beer. Big pale tan head. Tangy fruit nose. Smooth palate with fine carbonation. Rich malt base, not bitter or roasty. Nice hops - piney and mildly bitter. Mild red berry fruits. The malt has soft chocolate and very mild coffee. Finishes smooth and semi dry with pretty bitter pine that provides a robust and lengthy bitter linger. Reminded me a lot of Kernel Indian Brown Ale but not quite as good as that stellar beer.

Keg at Prohibition Pig - Waterbury, VT. pours deep, reddish-brown with a creamy tan head. Dusty toasted pine aroma, some dry bread, hints of toated toffee and orange. Light to medium sweet flavor with rich, toasted bread, mild pine, some dry sugars, hints if brown sugar and toffee, some ripe citrus. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Sweet finish with some earth, toasty leaves, dry citrus, pine, touches of chalky cocoa, toasty bread. Great balance. Very drinkable stuff. Good depth of character.

Growler muled by oteyj, thank you! Murky brown color, medium tan head. Aroma of subtle chocolate covered pine needles. Taste is brown bread, chocolate, raisins. Low carbonation, but could be the growler. Medium body. One of the nicer brown ales I’ve had, and definitely the nicest aroma.

hopscotch (9060) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2014
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!

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.

On tap at Capone’s. Poured a brown color, with deep amber tints, and a small sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, citrus, and roast. Tastes of chocolate, some coffee, citrus, caramel, and roast. Lacing left on the glass.

750mL growler/fliptop thanks to oteyj. Big carbonation yields a clear, red cherry cola with a larger yellow head. Nice retention. Thick appearance- sticky rings of impressive lace even out of a growler. Nose is very roasty, much more coffee and earth than I was expecting. Almost porter like nose with maple. Taste is richer, bitter, piney, small umami character. Roasty and earthy coffee still with mild hazelnut. Very good- hard to make a beer this style that is enjoyable. Mild salt, pine, tree bark. Bitter but nicely balanced by dark chocolate and coffee. Palate is lemony, mildy acidic, small saltiness. Feels heavier than 6%. Still quite aggressively hoppy. Could be slightly overwhelming.

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.
