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.

Nose was a little feint, but as expected per style, good grainy body, hops are used very tastefully, Very easy drinking, not one of my favorite from Surly, but still really solid.

Thanks Tampa Crew for the share. Pours clear gold with a white head. Nose is corn, lager, and a bit of hops. Flavor is similar with hops balanced in with the malt, sweetness, and a crisp finish. Not my style, but this was a nice beer.

On tap at Grumpys NE pours golden/straw with nice white head. Aroma is earthy, grain, grassy. Taste is crisp and fresh with a nice lemon zest, bread, yeast. Very nice balance extremely drinkable, good session beer. Really a enjoyable more traditional light beer from Surly.

Can. Pour is golden yellow with a soapy head. Aroma is honey malt and lemon zest. Taste is lemon faint hops and somewhat bitter. Palate is slick and finishes dry.

This just may be a beer I can serve friends and family who are unwilling to try a craft beer. Something to get them on the road to, yes I do deserve better tasting beer. Nice grain and a small bit of barnyard, a bit of sweet, just right, with a very nice dry finish.

Well not anything to scream about and for the price proabibly wont be buying much of it but much better than other beers of this kind I have tried. Surly has a way of making beers better than others in my opinion. It has good flavor but not a favorite style of mine. Kudos to Surly for making it better than others but thats about it.

On tap. Pours clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma is doughy with a small bitter hop presence. Flavor is somewhat sweet and wheatlike, but has a nice hop bitterness to balance it out. Pretty solid for the style.

A very clean lager, with decent hopped taste. I slightly prefer Furious to this, but nevertheless this beer looks beautiful, smells fresh, tastes fresh and light and is great for a casual afternoon/evening sip, or 30.

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.
