3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can courtesy of goryshkewych. Pours deep clear gold with thin white head. The aroma is full with grains, floral hops, spicy hops and slick sweet lagery-ness. The taste is similar with bold yet refreshing grains and malts rolling into bitter spicy hops and then softened a bit by floral and earthy hops toward the finish. It ends with a pulse of sweet malty lagery yeastiness.

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.
