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.

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.

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.

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

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - NOV 1, 2009
12oz. bottle served in a shaker pint. Poured a reddish gold with a finger of white head. Bready malt aroma with a little noble hops. Medium bodied with a solid malt base. Bit of spice from the rye. Sweet malt on the start, crisp hop bite in the finish. Easy drinking, nothing earth shattering.

cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 1, 2009
Bottle. Pours a coppery red with a scant quick fading head. Aroma of bready malts, some caramel, a little spicy rye, slight fruits. Flavor malt sweetness, a bit of rye, fairly carbonic in flavor like a seltzer water despite not having an overabundance of carbonation, some cherry fruit notes, slight bitter finish with graininess. Medium mouthfeel.
