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). Its fiendishly drinkable, and you dont have to sell your soul to get another.

I like a good lager, but I think Surly has missed the mark a bit on this one. The grainy/corny malt flavors are too prominent. Not enough hop bitterness to clean things up. Feels a bit watery on the tongue. Not bad, but not the greatest.

sloth (2755) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Small white head, fair retention and lace. Hazy, gold colored Lager. Nose of wet grains and grass, worty, honey. Body is light, yet full, brisk on the palate, hint oily and coating. Just a lightly sweet, grainy brew with a mild grassy hop backing. Nothing fancy but seems to be well done. Finish is a touch sweet with a slight bitterness but probably right for the style. maltOrama! Can from footbalm! Thanks buddy!
