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.

Tap. Pint at brasa. Gold with small head. Easy to drink from the outset. Smooth and crisp. Nice balance with clean aftertaste. Departure from surlys normal style, but good.

Can. Aroma is pilsner malts and bready yeast. Taste is much of the same. Maybe even watered down. Not a big fan.

Aroma is very grainy/slightly earthy malts and a hint of fruit. The flavor is grains, light fruit/berries, malts, a relatively thick body and a mildly tart/smooth finish.

Unfortunately my synopsis on Hell is it’s the highest quality craft beer I’ve ever tried that seems to be trying to be similar to mass produced dreck....but better than that. It’s a lager and it tastes exactly as a lager should, but the sourness is too intense for me...it has a lot of grain working, with some hops. Hey, glad I tried it....won’t again.

Frisk i aromen, maltig. Mycket fyllig för att vara en ljus öl. Lite humle i smaken.
