  • Color: Deep Amber
  • Pours a deep amber copper color with a one finger light tan head. The head slowly dissipated after a few minutes leaving a thin layer of foam resting on top. Some web like lacing.

    The aroma is a combination of sweet malt, bread, rye and a light sweet fruit scent. A very pleasing aroma.

    The taste again presents a sweet, but light dark fruit flavor that mingles with a sweet malt and rye and finishes with an earthy flavor and a bit of spice.

    Medium body with medium to high carbonation. Smooth and creamy on the palate with a zesty zing of spice and carbonation on the finish. A slightly sweet stickiness on the lips.

    Overall, a very nice beer from Great Divide. An easy drinking beer that has a nice level of complexity, but yet maintains a simple enjoyable nature. Very well balanced, tasty brew that gets extra points for a creative spin on this style of beer. Try one!

Beer Notes
  • Based on the Marzen 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.
