From the 16oz can to my FW Imperial Nonic glass
Dated 02/12/14 – Thanks to mid as always for my Surly fix!
A: Pale straw gold body with a slight unfiltered haze look to it. About three fingers of eggshell colored suds builds up in the nonic holding for a lengthy amount of time. Suprisingly low amount of stick given all that head. Just a few dots and ribbons laced here and there.
S: Smells very doughy with that common Pilsner grainy bread like character. Has a touch of sourdough twang to it with some floral cut grass and dried citrus peel there. A very simple and clean aroma. You can really sense the high quality ingredients used.
T: Bready Pilsner malts take lead with a tuck of sour grains and a light dab of honey sweetness. Has a vanilla like creaminess to it that I find is just great. Some mild tingly hop bitters of prairie grass move in with flashes of old citrus and earthy spice. Subtle kiss of lemon lime there as well as some green apple. Alcohol is entirely disguised. Simple and understated but totally refreshing.
M: Moderate to lighter body with an upper amount of carb lending to an extremely smooth mouth feel. Moderate to lower amount of perceived bitterness. Very nice crisp finish. Balance is solid between wet and dry.
D: Very drinkable with some delicate flavors built around a base of Pilsner malts. I am no expert on this particular style but I found Surly Hells Lager to be utterly refreshing to drink. This beer is the reason why I need to check out more Lagers.

The Surly Hell is ok....nothing spectacular in my humble opinion. The beer poured a clear golden with thin white head that is not leaving much of a lace. The scent is very faint if at all...maybe some bittering hops. The taste has biscuit with touches of grass and peat. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a good session beer.

(Served in a stemmed strange)
A- This beer pours a warm yellow body wit a thin snow white film and a slow carbonation of tiny bubbles working to the surface.
S- The clean soft mellow Pils malt has a bit more fullness than its German counterpart but still very nice. Soft hint of green hops come through as it opens, but stays softer than malt.
T- The mils sweet malt note is gentle with a note of bread as it opens. The finish is nice and clean with just enough sweetness to give it a fresh character without being sweet. A hint of pungent pith is very soft for a moment on the after taste. A cracker character grows in the malt flavor as it opens up.
M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with a gentle fizz making the mouthfeel more full and no alcohol heat.
O- This is a nice sessionable beer that is clean with good malt character. More full that a typical German Munich Helles but just as nice. However after drinking a 16 oz can of this I fell like had just eaten a meal.
