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.

I want to love this beer but something is missing that I can't put my finger on. The body is slightly lighter than I expect from this style ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Treated as an Oktoberfest, this was poured into a mug (correct use of glassware). The appearance was a dark hazy burnt amber color with a sustaining white foamy dissipating little head. Messy lacing running here and there. The aroma flows between the sweet and spicy rye malts to the creative use of nutty yet biscuit sweet breadiness of the entirety of it all. Subtle sweet grassiness underneath. The flavor brings it all together nicely. Nice semi-sweet/lightly spiced flowing rye into the aftertaste and then riding fairly quick into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionable feel to it. Carbonation seems to ride fairly nice. Overall, Oktoberfest - yes, definitely and with a nice creative ingenuity by Great Divide, this is definitely worthy to come back to.

Jado (795) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAR 4, 2016
355 ml bottle. Cloudy orange-brown body with a thin but lasting white head. Raisins, candied fruit, orange and spice on the nose. Sweet malt at first before orange zest and pith, peppery spice and dried fruit flavours come through. Slightly zesty finish with a lingering spicy aftertaste. Would definitely have again.
