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). It’s fiendishly drinkable, and you don’t have to sell your soul to get another.

From the can. Aroma is light, clean malt with a dry pale lager smell complimented by light floral hops a bit of a pilsner-type aroma and a smidge of sweetness. Tatse is very clean malt with a bready quality followed by floral and even lightly spiced hops and minimal sweetness into the finish. Very clean drinking beer. I really like this beer.

16oz can from France 44 online. Pours a bright, clear yellow with a white head. Aroma is malty, bready, maybe a little citrus lemon. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bread, just a touch of bitter hops, with a bready, sweet finish. Very tasty.

FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Poured from 16oz can to pint glass. Extremely fresh, canned 5 days ago: Pours and smells like a quality pilsner. Pale gold, clear as a bell, abundant large-gauge beading. A starch white finger of foam floats above. I have a hard time pinpointing the flavors of this family of beers. Cereal, sweet bread, some bitter hop presence, rather pleasant. Drinks like a good outdoor summer beer. This might be a candidate for my Bonnaroo beer in a few weeks. Crisp, clean with subtle hops and mild malts.

Courtesy of Alpar. Pours a crystal clear golden color with a 2-finger, white head. Aroma grass, bread, light lemon. Taste is sweet with some mild bitterness. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Finish is slightly bitter. Very clean and refreshing on a hot Arizona summer day.

May 26, 2012 can from Ale Jail. Translucent light golden pour with lots of head and nice lacing. Aroma was sweet malt, grain and light hops. Taste started grainy, move to sweet and finished with a mild bitterness. Thin, slightly carbonated and easy to drink. Thanks to MattyB for the excellent customer service when picking this up!

Originally reviewed: 10/30/09. Poured this into a mug. Pours a very pale yellow with very few bubbles rising throughout. Big frothy white capped head. Good retention; leaves some nice sip rings on glass. Smells of grains, and light citrus, like orange zest. The mouth was a tad wet and thin, but for the style that may be normal? Not sure. Very easy to drink though. The body was light with little carbonation play on the tongue. Flavor was pretty decent. Light citrus pop with hints of hop bitterness and a semi-sour finish. This is my first of this style. It reminds me of a Kolsch or something of the sort. This was refreshing. I’d have another.

Pours an extremely pale blonde with a thin white head. The aroma is light malt, bread, hay, and yeast. The taste is light malt, bready, light sweetness, and some light spicy esters on the back end. It’s ok but not really my thing.
