Hill Farmstead Abner

Since I finally became the top Hill Farmstead rater on RateBeer, I thought it would be interesting to see how each of these score. I rated these beers at different times in my beer rating hobby and some bottles were old, maybe I ate a spicy taco and then rated Damon and other variables. so I’m posting this for posterity but I do plan on revising my ratings. Clara and Anna have both become much better. CD1 was a very old bottle when I rated it which is also a problem. Flora I gave a 4.6 when it’s turned out to be one of my favorite Hill Farmstead beers.

Also, even though there seven beers I rated a 4.8, that’s the overall rating. RateBeer puts these in order based on all 5 individual numbers I give so Society 5 and Society 3 may both be 4.8 but one was a 9 taste and another was an 8 taste so that leads to 5 beating it out. The top 10 I fully agree with though. These are beers I could drink for the rest of my life and be very content and happy.

Either way, this is a fun exercise to share. I doubt everyone will agree with this but I feel so lucky to live close to a brewery that makes my favorite beers!
