Finally, a Surly beer my German mother will drink. She says this one tastes like a bier from back home. Not unlike a Zwickel Bier from Germany, Hell is our filtered and fermented with lager yeast, American hops takes a back seat to the Pils malt sweetness and fresh bread aroma. The color is well... hell (Deutsch for light). It’s fiendishly drinkable, and you don’t have to sell your soul to get another.

Thanks to chewy08rx for hooking me up with a lot of great beers from Surly. The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is grassy hops with some lighter bready and pilsner-type malts. The flavor is grassy and biscuity, with a low amount of bitterness. Thin to medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice.

Thanks to Sean for this great beer to start the night...Pour is nothing special, looks like a lager...Aroma is light but refreshing, not any skunk. Taste is also lighter with light hops but totally easy to drink. No skunks at all. One of the best lagers I’ve had.

Can. Poured a near clear yellowish gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a nice combination of pine and grass with some nice backing grain, malts and lager yeast. Flavor was similar with a nice balance of hops (pine/grass) and malts (biscuit/bread.)

Pours: Light, clear golden yellow with a small white head that quickly disappears. Nose: Pilsner malt, biscuit, butter, slight hops, slight sweet caramel, and honey. Taste: Pilsner malt, biscuit, honey, and slight caramel with just a hint of hops. Mouthfeel: Oily, very drinkable, and actually slightly viscous for this style. Overall: Great beer for a style I usually don’t like. Thanks for including this in the trade 321Jeff!

(16oz can via trade with DalzAle, thanks Greg!) Clear medium yellow with sparse white bubbles when coaxed. Nose if herbal, fresh grain, crisp. Taste is a bit buttery, sweet grain, earthy, biscuit, easy to drink with an oily body. Nice helles lager.

On tap at the Bavarian Lodge back in November 2009. Pours a nice straw color with a bit of unfiltered haze. A nice finger-and-a-half of white head with nice legs as it retreats. Smell has a pilsner, grainy sweetness with an ever-so-slight hop presence. A bit grassy with hints of herbal earth. Taste is very similar with a tiny amount of spice thrown in there. Mouthfeel is light with a nice crispness. Very drinkable; reminds me yet again why I need to always have more Surly. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 02-17-2010

16oz can (thanks to Beerlando for this bonus)... Poured a clear, golden color with a white head. Aroma of lemon, sweet wheat and herbs, and clean yeast. Very bready, strong with hops. But the hops played earthy and spicy oppose to resinous, thick, and bittering. Biscuity, light fruits and a clean finish.
