Nose was a little feint, but as expected per style, good grainy body, hops are used very tastefully, Very easy drinking, not one of my favorite from Surly, but still really solid.

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.
