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.

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.

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 (9687) - 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"

12 oz bottle from Archer Liquors, bottle says 2005, thats strange. Deep goldish dark straw color with 2-finger off-white head. Aroma is bready malt, hops, some graiy Wheaties-like notes, and some subdued fruit, giving way to a malty flavor with back-up lemongrassy hops and some fruity and grainy finishing flavors.

Attractive clear, deep amber appearance with a medium size, off white head and moderate lacing. Muted, malty aroma, some grainyness, slightly vegetal. Subtle spicy hop taste follows the sweet malts up front. A mild peppery burn lingers in the bitter aftertaste. Almost always enjoy rye in my ales, and to accent it in a marzen adds another unique dimension. Overall, not too complex or obtrusive, but quite quaffable.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Pours a mostly translucent copper amber with a medium creamy off white head. Aroma of spicy rye notes, clean lager profile, some cereal grains, nuts and very lightly toasted malt. Flavor of spicy rye bread notes, hard pretzels, nuts and a hint of some citrus character. Like the use of rye in this Marzen style lager.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Draught at TJ’s: Aroma of slight corn and a hint of rye. Poured amber/orange in color with a small, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Not sparkling. Tastes of light lager yeast, corn, light rye, and grains. Medium body. Tingly, lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Corn and slight rye finish. A boring brew.

neepsntatties (1715) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Colour... amber with no head. Nose... sweet malt, spicy rye notes and mild hops. Palate... mild carbonation, spicy rye, mildly sweet malt, lightly grainy and a smooth finish. Certainly Marzen like, but not esp. complex.

Nephilium (1660) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2009
Slightly sweet aroma, with caramel notes, and a touch of rye in the finish. Pours a bright orange, with a tight white head, that leaves good lacing behind. The flavor starts with the toasty biscuit malts of a traditional marzen, but finishes with the nice bite of rye. Nice crisp finish, and very drinkable.
