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.

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.
