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.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2015 Straw gold, slight haze. Lemony citrus hops and pale malts. Flavor seems particularly thin with pale malt, some citrus, and a bit of yeast-type qualities. Just not a whole lot going on. Pick up a bit more flavor upon further drinking...but not much. Disappointing. Re-rate: real yeasty, biscuity. Lemon hops. Herbal/minty finish. Better than the last, fresher can. +5

I just got a 4-pack of this from my Secret Santa. Golden color, a one finger head develops on top, but practically nothing stays on top. The aroma is quite nice showing sweet bread, fresh-cut grass, wheat, hops, and light lemon. The flavor is good too, although not quite as nice as the aroma. Sweet bread and corn flavors mix with a neutral wheaty note and crisp hops. This gets just dry enough in the finish to satisfy. Light-bodied and refreshing. You got to love a low abv beer that’s still got some nice flavors and is refreshing in the hot sun. Well, I do. Thanks to whoever sent this to me.

[Can, thanks Guerde] Pours slightly hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is floral hops, lots of cracker, and very faint smoke. Simple, but nice. Big crackery taste, with just the right amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel, smooth, good finish length. Overall, a very nice session beer. Thanks again, Andy!

16 oz can from a trade with CLevar. Pours clear golden color with white head. Biscuit aroma with slight fruitiness. Moderately sweet fruity flavor with some biscuit malts and grassy hops. Slightly bitter. Light to medium body with average carbonation. Thanks Caleb.

1 pint can pours a cloudy gold with a thin cap of bright white head with little retention and light lacing. Aroma is fresh cut hay and light grains. Flavors are crisp, with the pilsner malt taking center stage and fresh, slightly sweet hops providing a little pop of bitterness. This would be an amazing summer session beer, if only I had more than one can!

can thanks to Tyler! Pours hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is doughy with lots of pale grains, a little soapy. Flavor is unreal for style and abv, creamed corn, hay, very grassy and earthy all the way through with a nice crip finish of grits and earthen hops. Really nice stuff.

On tap at the ACBF. Light golden pour with little head and lace. Cereal grain and a lemony zest on the nose. Quite zesty on the palate with a clean light bitterness.
