3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Just OK, but I’m not a big fan of the Marzen style lager. It always seems to be lacking something and this one did as well, even from a great brewery. Light malty notes with some toast in the aroma. It was orange and red in color with a white head. Lighter palate with good carbonation. The malts fill the mouth and with very little hops present. Some spice but all in the background. Probably my least favorite from GD so far.

Bottle. Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma of toffee, bread and spices. Moderate carbonation. Sweetish toffee, dry finish with some spices. Low bitterness. Liked the way the maltiness is clean but neither dull nor allowed to linger.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
6/19/2010: Great Divide Hoss Rye Lager... Aroma: Mostly grainy with undertones of fruity and spicy rye malt. Appearance: Coppery-orange color with reddish hues, decent head of dense, beige-colored foam that lasts for quite awhile. Flavor: Toasted malts, caramel, slight fruitines; almond and light, citrusy hops; coffee bean undertones; dry and spicy rye finish. Palate: Medium-bodied; very smooth; slightly creamy. Overall: Actually, this is a really nice Maerzen-style beer with a noticable rye kick; I enjoyed this beer and would drink it regularly, particularly in the Summer...
12 fl. oz. bottle (6.2% Alc. by Vol. / Bottled on: Mar 4 2010) from The Party Source in Bellevue, KY. Thanks for the recommendation, Danny! Rating #550 for this beer.

Somewhat underwhelming.. Some rye and grain aromas and flavour. But otherwise everything seemed muted.
