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.

Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - SEP 27, 2009
Pours a deep copper color with a nice off white head that leaves sticky lacing along the inside of my glass. Aroma is malt, rye, fruits, spices and caramel. Flavor is spices, yeast, malts, caramel with a medium body and quite a bit of sweetness. Decent brew.

dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2009
light clear copper color, respectable off white head, some lace. nose of malt and hops in about equal measures. flavor is floral yeasty, sweet malty with the mildest trace of hops (could use much more). medium bodied, oily mouth feel, sweet finish. that’s my opinion and i’m sticking with it. single bottle from binny’s orland park.

Pours deep amber into a shaker. White head recedes to skim surface. Sour rye aromas. Thick with peppery rye upfront and lasting crisp malt finish.

12 oz. 6-pack purchased at Mac’s on West Peachtree. I didn’t want to buy the whole 6-pack, but I figure what the hell? Slight foamy head on top of this coppery darker brown brew. Looks pretty good for a marzen lager. Sweet caramel malt aroma; the rye is playing a very small role in this beer. Rye is slightly more noticeable in the flavor, but the flavor is still that generic malt sweetness. It is better than a lot of marzen lagers, but not great. Hops are slightly noticeable. The beer is relatively smooth, but for me the flavors are just very weak, and don’t make much of a statement. Although I will say as the beer warms the rye seems to be a lot more noticeable.

Bottle at the Great Divide tap room. This was a clear amber beer with a soapy head. The smell was good and sweet almost, intriguing. The beer was a nice lager with a bit of sweetness and a hint of the rye. For some reason I was not expecting to like this beer but I did, I may need to pick up a sixer.

bconger (138) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - SEP 24, 2009
Bottle. Beautiful copper pour with a foamy, off-white head. Caramel and cherry on the nose. Sweet malts give way to a medium-full body and crisp finish. Notes of citrusy hops, but they are not dominant. I like it, but I’m not sure it’s worth the Alabama price of $10 per 6.

chronictonic (473) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2009
tap - TJ’s Everyday - As a Märzen, it’s probably not too close to style. Color was flat dark gold with a nice crisp grainy aroma. Mouthfeel was crisp and clean with a good grain malt flavor. Finished nice with a cleansing hop snap. Very refreshing - I could definitely drink a few of these.

Headbanger (3325) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2009
12oz bottle 9/23/09 (Courtesy of RSRIZZO)-Pours a light amber with a small off white head. Aroma of rye, malt, and sweetness. Taste of the same with some more sweetness and a bit of dryness. This medium bodied brew is not too shabby and goes down fairly easy.

DocLock (7913) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2009
Bottle from Ron’s. Pours deep copper with 3-finger off-white head and a lot of carbonation streams. Nose is rye malty, Slight Wheaties, with lemongrassy hops. The flavor is malty, with subdued hops, some caramel and earthy notes, and a medium to light palate heft. Not very complex, this one left me saying, "Meh"
