Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: feloniousmonk on 08-26-2008

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.

Poured a clear golden, nice lines of lace down the glass.

Not much in the nose, faint bready smell.

Overall a crisp sweetness, with notes of bread, saltines, black pepper

Quite carbonated

Not Surly's most unique beer, but a well-done sessionable drinker.
