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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8142) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2017
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a caramel amber color with a medium sized foamy white head that left great lacing. The aroma was malty and sweet with a bit of honey. The flavor was malty and toasty with caramel, honey, bread crust, grain and golden fruit. Long finish. Moderately full bodied and smooth. Excellent.

commonmac (1339) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 22, 2017
12oz can purchased at France 44 and consumed on a too warm for September kind of night. Pours a traditional copper/amber color with limited head. Nose is malty with a heavy dose of rye spice adding some nice complexity. Taste picks up plenty of caramel notes at the onset. This one feels a little more sugary than others within the style. Bitterness comes into play towards the end but really stays in the background letting the malt, rye, and grains be the stars. This would taste even better if the Minnesota fall weather cooperated.

luttonm (6763) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 3, 2017
Can in Seattle. Soft ring foam, rich amber/brown orange body. Nice caramel sip, muscovado sugar, bitter edges. Pretty delicious. Rye bready crust aroma. Sweet round edges. Nice bitterness. This works very well.

Bärnstensfärgad öl med ett lättare gulvitt skum. Doft av rågkryddighet, karamell och säd. I smaken tillkommer en gräsig beska.

DocJitsu (2036) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - DEC 10, 2016
Pours a slightly murky copper-golden with an eggshell head. Average märzen nose. Märzen flavors. Richness in the beginning, fading to metallic.
