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.

chickenflea (351) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2010
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear dark copper, with a finger of rich light tan head. This retains with a smooth creamy layer that leaves a nicely laced glass. The rye shares equal billing with the malts in the aroma. A touch of spice and bread back them up. It’s a pleasant aroma, but subdued. The taste is mosty sweet on the tongue, with a mix of bread, toffee, and light fruit. Some balancing earthy hops mix with the spiciness of the rye to finish this with a satisfying dry ending. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a slightly astringent creaminess. There is just enough of a light sharpness to the carbonation to keep this crisp in the mouth. I don’t have a lot of experience with this style, so I can’t comment on it’s general quality. It is a very tasty brew. Refreshing and complex at the same time. A nice beer.

Good for style. Mire malt rye than typical. Bland smell and boring color. Ok.
