Brewed with lots of Golden Promise and Pale Ale malts with a touch of Oats and light hazy gold in color. Ultra crisp bitterness from Warrior hops, with Glacier hops adding the peach,orange and apricot aroma. We dry-hopped this one because...we like hops.

Can in trade from pepsican. Thanks for this cool extra!
Pours a nice mostly clear golden color with a creamy medium lived beige head. Smell is fresh mildly floral hops and oaty, nutty, creamy malt. Taste is hoppier than most of the style, but is pleasantly balanced by honey like, oat cereal like malt and a crisp bitterness with pleasant lightly floral hop flavor. This is very refreshing and sessionable. Really nice overall!

16oz can, what a solid brew out of a can. My 1st go at any of the Surly beers and it did not disapoint. Some metalic "can" flavor hidden in the finish of the brew maybe? Or was I just saying that as I stair at the can? Poured into tulip glass. Some sour / bitter flavors, intense and with terrific mouth feel, almost like it was barrel aged. Cirtrus, hops, balanced flavor. Really enjoyed this, and the price and packaging!

16oz can from Badbeer. Pours amber with a moderate sized, fizzy white head, good lace. Smells very earthy hoppy with some spices like basil and rosemary along with some iced tea. Tastes earthy hoppy and malty bitter, again with the spices and iced tea. Medium body, good carbonation. It’s good, I was expecting something different.

Can from iowaherkeye. Pours a nice orange/gold with a thin dissipating head. Aroma is that of nice floral and piney hops with a touch of citrus and some malty sweetness. Floral and herbal hops hit initially and are backed up by some toasted and lightly fruity malts. Some hops in the finish leave a light bitter effect lingering on the tongue. Seemed pretty light, had nice carbonation, and was a pleasure to drink. It proves that beers don’t have to be aged in a bourbon barrell and be 14% in order to be good. I would drink this everyday.

can from iowaherkeye. thanks joey! I love pouring beer from a can into a pint glass where the beer actually fills to the top of the glass like a real pint. Love these surly cans. Pours a hazy and deep orange golden with a small whispy white lace. Aroma is earthy and slightly sweet, with a strong malt presence and a dash of fruity hops. Flavor begins with nice bready malt and finishes slightly sweet and bitter with notes of the citrus and peach. Nice mouthfeel and a very delicious bitter overall. Love these english style beers that are lower in alcohol but can still pack a mean flavor punch. Could drink pints of this. Well done.

Pours hazy golden with some brown hues. Light fizzy off white head. The aroma has is mostly a dusty malt character with dried apricot hop nose. The flavor is spicy hops with a bit of grassy clippings. Lots of dry malt character. Medium body with a whole bunch of carbonation. Dry bitter finish. Easy to drink. Good.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Pours a golden yellow color with a quickly dissipating froth. Aroma is very earthy hops with some sweet malty notes. Flavor starts off very sweet and mellow but the hops come in quickly and take over through the finish. The bitterness is somewhat mild. Very strong pine and floral flavors. Medium bodied, this is a very refreshing esb that really isn’t too bitter, almost to the point of being an ipa.

Courtesy theisti. Wow, I like the hop aroma on this one with a big citric fruity peachy nose. Dark bread shores up the back end. Hazy copper with a nice but small foamy head. Oh man, starts with a one-two punch of herbal tobacco leaf hops and earthy biscuity malts, all propped up with a big soft pillowy mouthfeel, with light airy carbonation. Crisp balanced finish, with a lingering tingle of spicy hop. There’s alot of hop complexity in this, and a nice malt backbone for being low alcohol. Altogether quite nice.

Thanks to tytoanderso for the can. Clear orange color with a medium head. Aroma of caramel malts, biscuit and fresh grapefruit and pine hops. Dry and bitter taste. Crisp and good for a hot summer day..

Can from TomDecapolis. Pours a mostly clear copper with a thin white head. Aroma is toasted malts, slightly nutty, nice hearbal and floral hops with a touch of mint. More herbal and tea-like hops in the flavor with fresh doughy yet crisp malts, and a clean bitter finish. Pretty good for a bitter.
