If you’re surprised that I love this beer, you probably don’t know me very well. Awesome crackery pilsner malt character with refreshing grassy hop character? Sign me up for a billion, and I could actually drink a billion because this is extremely easy to down.

Thanks to Scoobydank for this one. I love a good German lager and this was one. Easy to drink refreshing to experience and pretty to look at, that about sums it up.
The can poured into a Sam Adams glass produced a great white head that lasted on top of a clear golden yellow body with plenty of bubbles rising from the glass. The aroma’s were the perfect mix of malts yeast and lemony hops. The flavor mimicked the nose but being light and crisp as well
A great summer brew glad I got to experience it

Sweet. Hoppy. Light. SO DRINKABLE. You could "session the shit out of this" - Katie Burk. Such like drink ability. Only slight hoppy bitterness. Sweet sweetness. So good.

Pours a really nice golden yellow straw color with a nice earthy aroma in the nose. Very nice tasting beer, a little lighter and less exciting than what you have come to expect from Surly, but very good. Tastes very similar to a pilsner. Light in body but very tasty, I am a fan.

Easily the most drinkable Surly offering. Light in color but complex in flavor with subtle hoppy notes. Similar to most American lagers in color and taste.

Pours a Dark Yellow-Almost Golden color with a soapy head. Nose consists of yeasts, barley, pale malts and biscuits; Likewise for the flavor. Body is light, crisp and mildly carbonated. Easy to drink beer and a great beer to introduce people to craft beer.

Thanks to Dansting for a can of this one. The body is bright bronze with a light off white head. The nose is herbal and sweet. It has pears and a little hint of mineral earthiness. The body is smooth and a little chewy. There is a flavor of herbs and hints of hay. There is also some peanuts and a little bit of corriander like spice. This is solid.

Can courtesy of tytoanderso, Pours a gold/copper with a thin off white head. Smells of toasted malt, caramel, some earthy hints, some subtle spicy hints. Tastes of dry malt, a touch of grass, spicy, some fruity hints, earthy. Well rounded and an excellent autumn beer. I wish I could get this one locally.
