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

Bottle thanks to Fitz. Pours brown with a small off white head. Aroma is very simple, basic, some malt and doughiness, herbal and a touch piney and citric hop note. Flavor is much more sweet, strong malt character, bready and caramel before a stronger hop finish. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Good for a style that Im not too big on.

Just was not a fan of this. A bit on the watery side, and some medicinal lingering finish to go along with it. A rare miss from these guys for me.

Tap at Hill Farmstead. Light brown pour, slightly cloudy. Aromas of light roast, caramel and a touch of coffee. Taste is roasty and mildly bitter. Finished kind of sweet with a thin body. This is a huge letdown and very pedestrian. Probably the first HF beer I wouldn’t bother with again.

Oh que cette bière est dangereuse... Légère, complexe et savoureuse à souhait, il n’est que trop facile de baisser la garde et d’en abuser. George présente une tête riche, persistante et fière sous laquelle le liquide est d’un brun grillé. Les arômes de malts rôtis, café, vanille et sésame grillé sont fraîches et nobles. En bouche, la texture est soyeuse et le liquide coule avec fraîcheur et délicatesse. Aux notes de malts, s’ajoutent la noisette torréfiée et un houblon d’une fraîcheur printanière qui confère une agréable touche herbacée à cet heureux mélange. La densité est moyenne mais ma satisfaction totale!

Arômes intenses de noisettes. Ceux-ci reviennent en bouche et donne un gout amer très intense. Rapidement, des touches de chocolat au lait et de houblons prennent leur place. L’amertume est forte et sèche et le goût de chocolat persiste sur la langue. Pas la meilleure de HF mais une excellente bière tout de même et une des meilleures que j’ai essayée dans le genre.

Purchased growler from brewery. Pours a frothy head. Aroma is sweeter than I was expecting. Was thinking about something more of a Newcastle when I think Brown Ale as far as taste but this is way stronger and much more complex. Noticing strong coffee taste with lesser touches of toffee and caramel. Leaves bitter, lingering aftertaste.

Pours from growler a light brown, slightly transparent. Small tan head. Aromas of roasted nut, milk chocolate, faint earthy hops. Taste is balanced with roast, sweet malt, oat, powder cocoa mix and lightly bitter hops. Nice ale.

Growler thanks to Will. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong toffee, nuts, raisins. Medium mouthfeel with bready malt, toffee, light roast, very good.

Growler 750ml. Thx Czar. Pours muddy brown with low beige head. Aroma is of malt, fruits, wood, sugar. Taste is of wood, roasted malt, some acidity, some bitterness. Palate: medium body. Soft carbonation. Overall: Pretty good, tasty. Nice malt features. Almost refreshing. Conditions of rating were not top notch: I hope I rate this one again soon.

Pours a dark brown with almost no head. Nose is nutty with coffee notes and a touch of dark fruits. A great smooth coffee taste in the mouth. Strong malt body, nuttiness, and some residual sugars. Medium carbonation. Tasty beer, but by far not the best from Hill Farmstead!
