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

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.

Pours a thick brown/red hue, thick tan head. Aroma is toffee, chocolate, coffee grind, sweet malt. Taste is full of dark malt, bitter and sweet chocolate, light hop. Med full body, real smooth. Great execution of the style.

Deux verres de dégustation dans cette interminable file d’attente. Un liquide qui est brun sur lequel flotte une tête solide. Au nez, les malts bruns, le chocolat et les noisettes dominent des houblons verts et bien frais. En bouche, les saveurs de noix grillées, de caramel et de chocolat laissent peu de place aux cultivars. Sur le palais, le liquide m’apparaît être de moyenne densité. La texture est agréablement crémeuse. La finale se fait sur des notes délicates de chocolat et de houblons amers. Cette version est très bonne. Trop facile à boire. D’ailleurs, comme la plupart des créations de cette maison dans les collines.

Tasted on 2/7/14 from a bottle at the Friday night tasting at RBWG Asheville, thanks to Leighton for sharing. Pours clear light cola brown with an average beige head that leaves average lace. The nose is a very nicely balanced hopped brown ale with nutty malt, light chicory, and some resin hops. The flavor is the same nice balance of nutty malt and bitter resin hops. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long nutty and resin hops finish.

mabel (5371) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2014
[5254-20130426] Tap. Toasted brown bread malt aroma has a bit of a barley bag going on. Clear, dark brown body with a medium-lasting creamy light tan head. Toasted malt grain flavour has a lightly sour-bitter base. Medium body. Tasty but a little rough. (7/4/8/4/15) 3.8

Berard (217) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Growler. Pours dark brown with creme colored pillowy head that lingers with heavy lacing. Smells of chocolate covered peanuts with mild carbonation. Slightly sweet chocolate flavor with a mild boozy flavor. Easily the best of this style I've ever had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

phaleslu (5889) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle shared at RBWG at the Friday night bottle share. Pours a chestnut brown with a small beige head that leaves spots. Notes of chocolate, nuts, toast, earth, and tobacco. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a toasty, earthy mouthfeel. Excellent brown ale, I have to admit.

Quevillon (2411) - Sainte-Thérèse, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 16, 2014
Drank on tap (7 oz) at the Vices & Versa 10th anniversary in Montreal on Febuary 8, 2014. Cola brown, thin head. Sweet aroma of raw cereal, a little cocoa. Cereal hoppy taste to the max, barley slightly sweet, dry bitterness. Hill Farmstead gives brown ales a bad name... because it’s that good!

deyholla (5975) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 15, 2014
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.
