Shrink-wrapped 750mL swing-top growler generously shared by yourefragile. Served in a Hill Farmstead long-stemmed tulip. Pours a nice light straw-yellow color with a fluffy white head and good retention. Really nice lacing on the sides of the glass as it goes down. The nose carries a good dose of grain and barley with some light floral and perfume notes. Really well-integrated. Light but fairly complex. Really impressive and on par with the best American pilsners I’ve had, which mainly consist of those coming very fresh from Victory on tap. Flavor starts with a nice grain character. Very smooth and soft. Comes in underneath floral-driven hops. Light earthiness and just a touch of spice. Light body and incredibly crisp. Ridiculously easy to drink. I could have easily taken down the growler and more by myself.

Slightly cloudy, golden to pale yellow pour with a single finger white head. Aroma is full of classic German hops. The aroma reminds me of Miller Lite, but 10x better. Taste has some bready notes and finishes dry and crisp. Floral hop character at the end. Very drinkable with loads of flavor. Extremely clean fermentation. Medium bodied.

Draft at Armsby Abbey. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves a lot to lacing in the glass. Nice floral and citrus notes on the nose and tongue. Finished crisp and clean. Very quaffable.

*6/5/2014 on tap at Hill Farmstead poured into a tasting glass. A~ looks exactly like a white gummy bear haha with a nice tight head and some lacing. S~ tons of pils malt along with honey and molasses. T~ nose is right on! amazingly clean with more sweetness here, this could really be brewed with a bit of honey. M~ great carbonation of course, incredibly clean and just all around refreshing! O~ i missed out on this last time, i’m glad i finally got to try it. i think this is definitely my favorite pils. thats definitely not saying much cause i generally don’t go for the style but i could drink this every day! 100th HF and the like review!

Draft. Head is white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cracker), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Surprisingly mediocre for such a hyped brewery, but then again I’m not a fan of HF’s sour-ish saison renditions either. This is a bit timid in the nose and while the malt and hops are pleasant enough, there is some undesirable veggie brine odor in there too. Decent flavor balance, but once again the slightly off aftertaste reminds one of the DMS. A long way from the best of Germany, sadly.

Sampled at the brewery. Heady yellow pour. Lovely toasted cracker and bread aroma. Light to medium body. The taste is so toasty, crisp, and clean. Slight zesty finish.

Palme (4812) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2017
On tap @ The Gingerman. This one has a blurry golden colored body. A nice big lasting just off-white head, hefty in the lacing department. On the nose it’s surprisingly pleasant. Not for a HF beer, but for a larger. Soft hay, a little grain. Hop presence, even some malts. Not a massive aroma but it smells nice. Thin stuff in the taste. We’ll, both in the taste and in the mouth actually. Watery texture vise and about averages on the carbonation. Thin grainy and quote soapy in the taste. Have to admit it tastes clean though. End with wet flatbread and some sweetness from the malts. 15.06.2017

Tap. Fluffy white head. Chill hazed golden lemon yellow. Citrus hops, slight mint, light crackers in aroma. Flavor leans citrusy, touch sour hay, light bread. Lighter soft body

hackobock (4063) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 21, 2016
May 12, 2016. On tap at Hill Farmstead day at Warpigs. .
Pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is malty, floral and herbal with crisp grain, some minerals and hints of citrus. Taste is light sweet, smooth bitterness. Light to medium bodied, crisp yet smooth, soft to average carbonation. Finish is slight grassy, herbal and floral bitter, crisp with some mineral notes, light malty sweetness.
Crisp, clean and amazing drinkability.
