Name – Hoss
Country – United States
Type – Marzen
Appearance – Pours a clear copper color with a big white head that disappears quickly.
Smell – Malts and a very bready like smell but not quite rye. Other grains can be picked up as well.
Taste – Slightly roasted malts with a bread like taste, very minimal rye. Some sweet caramel like notes.
Hoss is suppose to be a slightly different take on a traditional marzen lager. There is a hint of rye in the taste but not enough for me to really think of it any differently than any other marzen. It is a better than average one but I guess once again I was expecting more of a rye taste in it.
Overall Grade – C+
