Hill Farmstead Edward

I was excited to see Al’s of Hampden tap a keg of Hill Farmstead, so I ordered a glass moments after it was tapped. The beer pours a surprising cloudy orange-gold color with a frothy white head. The aroma consists of mostly grapefruit with some tangerine and pine in there as well. The taste is dry and bitter with lots of ruby red grapefruit, tangerine, and a hint of sugar and caramel. The alcohol content is 5.3% ABV. Edward was really dry and bitter, but plenty of citrus was there to sweeten up the mouth just enough. It solely focuses on the grapefruit flavor, but you won’t hear any complaints from me on that end, as I love the flavor of grapefruit. This beer is a must try.
