Notes/Commercial Description:
Not unlike a Zwickel Bier from Germany, Hell is not 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.

interesting.... like a typical American crap commercial brew, but with a twist. slight resin-y hops in the background, a fresher and cleaner build on the malts compared to, say, a coors, but still a little bit of piss-water taste. but that's not always bad, particularly on a warm summer day after mowing the lawn. just not NOW or TODAY after a Mastermind and a Zombie Dust, I suppose.... it kind of takes me back to my local bar/cantina late at night looking for some ugly hooch for a quick bed..... I've heard great things about Surly. it's a shame this is my first go at one of their brews....
