Nsanders (488) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Tap at Pizza Luce. Chestnut brown color with basically no head and minimal lacing. Aromas of caramel, grain and hay. Taste is very mellow with a light caramel sweetness. Body is watery. It always seems surprising to drink a mellow beer from Surly.

sudomorph (564) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2014
On draft at Northbound Smokehouse. Pours a clear caramel with a nice, off white head. Aroma is faint with slight caramel and mild fruity esters. Taste is slightly on thealty side. Caramel with some more traditional hops for balance. Medium body and carbonation. Smooth lager texture in the mouth. Overall tasty and drinkable with some nice caramel notes and a smooth texture.

nimbleprop (4758) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 13, 2014
4oz pour at Churchkey DC. Pours a clear caramel amber with some creamy, white head. Nose is quite nice, some caramel malt, a little pear, apple, earthy, perhaps a hint of wood, a definite hint of smoke. Flavor is very nice, gentle, malt, apple, pear, light wood, light caramel, a little cream soda. Medium bodied, crisp finish. Well crafted.

solidfunk (3854) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Pours amber. Smells a little roasty. Not sure what to say other than it’s a bit sweet and the texture is watery. Tap takeover at Churchkey.

radagast83 (4548) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Shared at CK with gendv138 and solidfunk. Thanks. I don’t really know if this was the beer or my empty stomach, but man - I was actively repulsed by this particular beer’s aroma - I mean repulsed bad. Bad, awful, sicking. I don’t know what was going on - flavor was actually not too bad. Sweet malt, light citrus notes.

4 ounces on draft at ChurchKey during the SAVOR Surly event. Pours dark brown with off-white head, decent lacing. Aromas of wheat and malts. Tasting notes of sweet malts, wheat, caramel. Medium body with a dry finish.
