says The hops define this beer

October 6th, 2008

The extra hoppiness contributes wonderfully to the overall flavor character of this beer.  It has the look and initial similarities to the other Oktoberfest beers, but the extra hop kick puts Surlyfest miles ahead of the competition, at least in my book.  I felt like the aroma was a little like an old dishrag, leaving me thinking that I might not have washed my beer glasses properly, but, no, it was the beer.  That would be my only dislike about this beer.  Otherwise, the Surly boys have brewed up another winner.  The can design is a beautiful touch as well.
