COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 Tampa Crew for the share. Pours clear gold with a white head. Nose is corn, lager, and a bit of hops. Flavor is similar with hops balanced in with the malt, sweetness, and a crisp finish. Not my style, but this was a nice beer.

On tap at Grumpys NE pours golden/straw with nice white head. Aroma is earthy, grain, grassy. Taste is crisp and fresh with a nice lemon zest, bread, yeast. Very nice balance extremely drinkable, good session beer. Really a enjoyable more traditional light beer from Surly.

This just may be a beer I can serve friends and family who are unwilling to try a craft beer. Something to get them on the road to, yes I do deserve better tasting beer. Nice grain and a small bit of barnyard, a bit of sweet, just right, with a very nice dry finish.

Well not anything to scream about and for the price proabibly wont be buying much of it but much better than other beers of this kind I have tried. Surly has a way of making beers better than others in my opinion. It has good flavor but not a favorite style of mine. Kudos to Surly for making it better than others but thats about it.

On tap. Pours clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma is doughy with a small bitter hop presence. Flavor is somewhat sweet and wheatlike, but has a nice hop bitterness to balance it out. Pretty solid for the style.

A very clean lager, with decent hopped taste. I slightly prefer Furious to this, but nevertheless this beer looks beautiful, smells fresh, tastes fresh and light and is great for a casual afternoon/evening sip, or 30.

Pours a really nice golden yellow straw color with a nice earthy aroma in the nose. Very nice tasting beer, a little lighter and less exciting than what you have come to expect from Surly, but very good. Tastes very similar to a pilsner. Light in body but very tasty, I am a fan.

Can. Grabbed a fresh 4 pack the other day and time to re-visit this old friend after drinking plenty of it last year. Pours an absolute crystal clear golden color with a white as snow 2 finger head. The smell is very clean. Slight hops and balanced sweetness. The taste can only really be described as clean and crisp. A great summer time beer for anyone, including macro only drinkers. From Surly you expect a big hop bomb or something else extreme but this is just a straight up drinking beer. If you are looking for strong hops, then look somewhere else as this will not satisfy that craving. Light/medium mouthfeel.
