3.93/5 rDev +2.6%
Poured from a 16oz can into a tulip glass.
Pours a very clear yellowy orange color with a Niven creamy white head. Aroma has some lemony hops and some sweet bread. Nice balance. Taste is very clean and crisp. Similar to a helles lager but this has some more hops to it. Really beautiful flavors and great for the summer. The mouthfeel is medium bodied but light flavorwise on the finish. Drinkability is up there and love the cans.

Pours a golden yellow straw color with a small white head the dissipates quickly.
Smell is very earthy and grassy with a light bready malt aroma in the background.
Taste is very clean and crisp with a big pilsner flavor. Very good flavor for the style. Light hops and bready malts in the finish, very good.
Mouthfeel is smooth and crisp. Medium carbonation with a light body.
Very drinkable, perfect beer for a hot summer day.

Straw color, with an eighth-inch white head that fades gradually, becoming patchy.
Smell is light, bready malts with a touch of buttery, caramel notes accompanying. Very light hops, as well as some faint corny notes.
Taste is lightly-spiced and bready malts with some subtle, grassy hops. Mild bitter rush follows, which in turn is followed by some light buttery, caramel notes. Finish has a slightly malty, corny aspect.
Mouthfeel is crisp, with a clean finish. Light body.
Drinkability is excellent. Very refreshing and easy to drink.

Received as an extra in a recent trade. (Cheers!)
Poured from 16oz can into shaker pint.
(No date to be found on the can.)
Aroma: Grain husk, a light metallic note, flour, and a vegetal corn note. Not saying this one's brewed w/ corn. Just noticing some possible DMS.)
Appearance: Almost crystal-clear (very impressive, as this one is unfiltered) golden body. Nice, white, two-fingered head falls slowly. Lacing is not present.
Flavor: Some good honey sweetness up front. Again, a bit of a corn-like vegetal note. Floral hop flavor and bitterness are pretty low. I, personally, could use more hops, and expected more in a Surly brew.
Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation. I would have enjoyed a little bit more to cut through the sweetness. Medium-light body. Actually, a bit more body there than I'd expected.
Overall: This one is pretty drinkable, as the can conveys. I could see the sweetness, though, getting to be a bit too much after a can or two. I would enjoy this one more if the sweetness were turned down a notch, and if more hops were thrown in. Not a bad one, just not my style.

Appearance-Very vibrant, nice hazy, sunshine yellow body. Head was white with little retention and some nice lacing. Very nice appealing looking.
Smell-Smells like a lager. Malt, some light citrus and hops. Bready.
Taste-Wow, talk about a session beer. When it first hits the tongue you think standard lager. Sweet malts then turns into a nice citrusy, light hop finish. Nice balance of flavors.
Mouthfeel-Nicely carbonated, light bodied. Just feels great in your mouth, near perfect mouthfeel
Overall-First beer of the style so I'm not going to go crazy. However, this is definitely a top 5 session beer that I would drink If I could access it, but I can't. bummer.
