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.

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.

Tap at ACBF. Yellow pour with a fizzy white head. Aroma and flavor are marked with light German hop, a nice breadiness, and a touch of sweet malt. Refreshing, and a nice change-up from all the stouts and sours of the fest. Very well done.

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.)
