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.

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2009
12 oz bottle courtesy of the Binnys singles rack (Orland Park, IL). Pours a nice dark muted light copper, fiery, transparent, well carbonated with a decent offwhite head that dies to a decent film. Aromas are a bit of stinky pilsner type malts, noble hops, a bit of caramel, rye malts. Initial is lightly sweet, caramel and rye work together towards an earthy noble hops bitterness, mild bitterness, sweetness, a touch of stinkiness. Decent body, rye comes in further into the taste, bready with biscuits, nice flavors but simple. Sticks to the palate ok, sessionable for sure and honestly, I like a beer with a more assertive malt profile, especially as a lager. Clean, very light bitterness and ok malt stick on the backend and aftertaste.

glennmastrange (2883) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2009
Bottle. Light aromas of grain and herbs for the malt and hops, and a hint of toffee and wood. Head is average size, frothy, slightly off-white with spotty lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is sparkling clear amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic, then the long finish is lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation and a lightly dry finish. Light in just about every respect but still a good drinking Marzen.

THE HOSS! Pours a dark copper color, with a foamy white head. Smells of yeast, hops, some caramel malt, and a hint of toffee in there too. The flavor is kind of the same, although has more a yeasty texture going on, with hops in the background. Got a little fruity sweetness in there too. Pretty easy drinking brew with decent flavor but nothing special.

PilsnerPeter (3046) - Flushing, New York, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Tap at Blind Tiger: Clear deep orange pour. Crisp spicy Munich malts are evident in the aroma with a grassy presence- nice and clean. Light body- the flavor has some grainy/spicy malt notes. Very clean with a light peppery noble hop grassiness. A solid German style lager.
