Hoss is based on the Märzen lagers of Germany. Rich, layered malt notes, with some hints of cherry and dark notes, dominate while the unique addition of rye imparts a slightly earthy, spicy character. Hoss finishes crisp and dry, and its brilliant red-orange color is a toast to the late-summer sunsets that make the perfect backdrop for this beer.

Not a bad lager. Very light, neutral aroma that reminds me of some of the big American brewers. Taste is complex with hints of earth, bread and, yes, I get the cherry. Finish is long, with just a hint of metal.

From a bottle. Pours a copper/amber, tiny head, malty aroma with a hint of Vegemite, touch of hops to balance the rich smooth malt flavours. A very, very good beer.

Bottle from Total Wine. Beautiful red-orange pour with a white head that doesn't last long. Well balanced with lots of flavors -- malt, dark cherry, and some nice spice from the rye. Easy to drink. Very good.

smaynard6000 (732) - Apopka, Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours a murky amber color with a small beige head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt with a hint of chocolate. Medium bodied with a smooth texture and a crisp finish. Sweet with some spiciness and some chocolate notes in the finish. I enjoy Marzens and I think this is a particularly good one.

NachlamSie (2915) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Pint at Lost Lake. Pours a crystalline dark gold. Crisp lager nose with cereal, woody hops and a hint of spicy rye. I love how well the subtle rye comes through in this lighter bodied beer. Flavor is balanced, crisp malts. Notes of cereal and fresh corn with a modest hop bite and timid, but rewarding rye notes. The finish is ever so slightly "off" but the lines here at this music dive are likely suspect. I enjoyed this enough to try it again from some fresh bottles or from the brewery.

Bottle to glass. Clear amber brown with nice white head. Aroma of light rye earthyness. Sweet malty caramel. Finishes with a dry earthy grass taste. Still sweet. A bit one dimentional but still tasty.
