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.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 18, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2012 Can thanks to daknole. Pours with a decently large, foamy white head over a clear yellow body. Aroma is sweet and bready with a bit of fruit and light citrus. Quite crisp smelling. Taste is sweet, a touch bitter with some bread and caramel notes. Very clean, and super easy to drink. Sparkling carbonation, light bodied. Very nice. 3.5
fresh can re rate. Insane! Clean, crisp, nice malt sweetness with a beautiful hop character and nice balance! 3.8

bhensonb (14321) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 17, 2009
Can from allendodd. Special thanks because this is: My first Surly. Pilsner glass. Pours gold with a three finger white head. Mild noble hop aroma. Near medium body with brisk carbonation. Flavor is spicey/floral/grassy with some pale malt. It drinks incredibly well. Finishes with a mild fruit note. And perhaps a bit bready.

Nice clean hops, bread, and malt aroma. Flavor is crisp and bready with delightful floral hops. Refreshing with the perfect amount of carbonation - this may be the ultimate session beer.

This is a delicious beer. Rich bread and grassy hop aroma. Flavor is perfectly balanced, light yet with depth and layers. Superb.

alagnak (468) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Can courtesy of theisti. Smells like summer @ the cabin - grass, a little spicy sage and fresh bread. Flavor is crisp and clean, slightly bready to start, with a really well-balanced bitterness finishing. A pleasant forest-floor thingl pervades throughout. Really good stuff. Thanks, Tim.

Thanks for making this possible Ty. 16oz can looks like a sports drink. It has a clear golden color with a small head. Aroma is very herbal and spicy hops. It kicks the nose a little without being American aggressive, in-your-face-hops. Otherwise, it is a clear white bread maltiness underneath. Flavor more awesomely crisp and white bread malts. has a good lightly bittered hop finish. It is good, herbal, fresh hops finish yet a thicker malty lagered flavor. Despite being unfiltered it has a completely clear pour all the way through. Its a very nice brew.

nickd717 (4289) - Sofia, BULGARIA - OCT 12, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2009 GABF 2009. Pours a clear yellowish-golden color with a creamy, lasting white head. Aroma is pale bready malt, grain, yeast, and earthy hops. Flavor is pale malt, grain, earth/grass, and some interesting champagne notes. Body is medium-light and carbonation is medium. Pretty dry and crisp. Very good for the style. UPDATE: Had this from a can 11/13/2009. Awesome! Great honey and floral hop notes on the aroma and flavor. Got better as the can went on. One HELL of a light lager, thats for sure.

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - OCT 6, 2009
16oz. can with thanks to beastiefan2k. Pours a clear light yellow with a foamy lasting white head. Aroma is toasted malts, light caramel and bread, and a hint of citrus hops. Flavor is also bread, toasted malts, a little caramel and a surprising lack of hops, but enough to be just right for this beer. Nice stuff, thanks Eugene!

daknole (10893) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 5, 2009
This is the first Surly beer that I didnt think was excellent. Gold pour. White head. Malty and some bready and buttery notes. Flavor is dry and bitter, but not all in a good way. Glad to try it but I dont think I would go back for seconds.

piscator34 (2370) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 3, 2009
Canned sample. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Buttery malt aroma, along with notes of bread dough, yeast, earthy hops, and a bit of nut. Drier in the mouth than the aroma would suggest with mineral and lime peel elements contrasting well with the pilsner malt flavor. Carbonation seems lower than average for the style. A touch doughy for me, but still a very drinkable and enjoyable beer.
