COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 17, 2009
Amber with a medium quickly dissipating off-white head. Aroma of German hops, rye and nutty malt. Taste of rye, fruit, mixed grains, mild toffee and Munich malts. Mildly dry after taste with rye mixed in. The rye spruces up and otherwise boring style but not enough to make this anything more than above average.

LilBeerDoctor (3516) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear orange with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet malt. Flavor of sweet caramel malt, some toasted malt, perhaps some spices (I don’t really get any rye notes). Kinda bland but certainly drinkable. Decent for an oktoberfest. 6/4/6/3/11 [3.0/5]

SrSilliGose (3310) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 16, 2009
pours a clear copper with ruby red highlights and a big foamy beige head. leaves some decent lacework upon the glass. Aroma is caramel, rye, bread. Flavor is chocolate, toast, toffee, rye, burnt cherries. Leaves a toasty, bitter, burnt, aftertaste in the mouth. Crisp and refreshing. Good beer. Pleasantly surprised by this.

sleestak (226) - Williamston, Michigan, USA - NOV 14, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Pours clear reddish-gold with a thin off-white head. Rye is evident in the aroma along with noble hops and soft, caramel notes. Flavor follows, with a lingering rye finish. Sticky, but with a thin body. Interesting experiment, but I’m not sure how well the grain choice translates to the style.

nick76 (4312) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 10, 2009
The aroma does capture some rye as well as cardboard, hops, and yeast. The appearance is amber gold with a foamy head. The flavor is like the aroma with a dry malty character. The palate is smooth but thin. Overall not a bad beer and it’s a nice interpretation but not my thing.

verymerrymonk (413) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Cloudy deep gold body with a very small but lasting white head. The rye component is evident up front. Spicy and moderately dry. Finish seems a bit thin, but enjoyable.

jeff789 (1408) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2009
Slightly hazy amber with an average white head, large bubbles, decent lacing... Aroma is very minimal with a touch of sweetness and spiciness.... Fruity flavor with a touch of spice in the finish, cherry is a dominate flavor but not in an overpowering way... Smooth, easy drinking, a touch dry at the end... Decent beer, wish it were a bit more complex

Pours coppery with a decent off white head. Aroma of sweet malt with a bit of spicy hop and rye. Flavor is lightly malty, again with a bit of spicy rye, and a slightly bitter finish.
