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.

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.

Pours amber color with off white head. Aroma of rye and carame malt. Spicy rye flavors with some sweetness. Medium body with lively carbonation.

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.

verymerrymonk (413) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2009
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

topherh (1929) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - NOV 2, 2009
Pours coppery with a decent off white head. Aroma of sweet malt with a bit of spicy hop and rye. Flavor is lightly malty, again with a bit of spicy rye, and a slightly bitter finish.

3.5
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.

2.8
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.

3.3
Braudog (6803) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 31, 2009
Bottle. Pretty sublime beer all the way around. Very little discernible aroma; And not much of a distinct or measurable flavor component either -- mostly just an easy-drinking, lightly malty, very lightly spicy beer, with a distinct creamy consistency. (#3726, 10/31/2009)
