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.

jamesewelch (259) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 16, 2016
From 16oz can, gift from friend, poured into pilsner glass

Aroma: bread, sweet, like a pils

Appearance: golden, clear, frothy, white foam,

Taste: medium sweetness, lightly bitter,

Palate: light body, oily feel, average carbonation, bitter,

Overall: A very good Helles. Lots of Pils malt character. Nice light body. Very drinkable. Something I’d drink quite a bit of, if it was local or I could find it on draft. An excellent lager with some great taste.
