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.

Pint can shared by Huhzubendah, thanks Matt. Pours a clear bright golden yellow with lasting wisp of head. Aroma is sweet corn and bread yeast, very pleasant actually. Flavor is same with mild spicy metallic note in the finish. Thin bodied, active carbonation, lasting sweet finish.

16 oz. can from TheHOFF43 - thanks again, Kyle! Pours a lightly clouded yellow-gold with a small white head that lasts for quite a while. Notes of bready and crackery pils malts, grass, straw, and faint citrus. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a a smooth, malty, very mildly bitter mouthfeel. Pretty dry, actually, and mostly clean. Glad I finally got to try this. Really nice American take on the style.

Thick white head that wants to hang out for a while. Not much aroma, pretty easy going down. Decent lager.

16 ounce can courtesy of AWISLguy, opened Halloween 2014. Trick or treat! Pours a slightly hazy amber with a medium sized foamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of doughy malt, spicy and grassy hops. The taste is grainy malt, doughy malt, apple, grassy hops. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, decent balance. Nice beer.

Can thanks to Will. Poured into a red solo cup. Ice cold cooler temp. Banana lager esters on the nose. Freezes my nose the harder I inhale. Crackery malts. Nice carb. Slightly dry. Looks cloudy. Tastes like a dry biscuit without butter or jam. Did I mention itís cold?
