Style: Märzen / Oktoberfest

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
HOSS is based on the Märzen lagers of Germany. Rich, layered malt notes, with hints of cherry and dark fruits, 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 sunsets that make the perfect backdrop for this beer.

Reviewed on 11/16/2009. Bottle. Pours a clear orange with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet malt. Flavor of sweet caramel malt, some toasted malt, perhaps some spices (I don't really get any rye notes). Kinda bland but certainly drinkable. Decent for an oktoberfest.
