Beer #157 Hoss Lager, Great Divide Brewing Company, Denver Colorado

I wanted to try to get a few Lager's in before winter! Summer went quick, the time for these typically lighter and refreshing beers. But the crispness compliments these fall days....

It pours a cloudy amber.

The aroma reveals biscuit tones, vanilla with a mild hop.

The malty body supports a nice biscuit and vanilla on the tongue. The presence of rye gives a more complex flavor, adding earthy and spicy tones to the finish. There is a hop bitterness that arrives at the very back of the tongue.

The aftertaste has a variety of notes including citrus from the hop, malt body and presence with some tartness that lingers.
