Great Divide Hoss
On of the first things I did upon arriving in Denver for Great American Beer Fest was to find a soccer bar to watch the Arsenal match. Google Maps on the Droid pointed me to The British Bulldog, where I ordered a Great Divide Hoss, a rye beer. The beer pours an amber color with a frothy white head. The aroma consists of sweet malts, rye, and a hint of lemon in the background. The taste is malty and sweet that also is dominated with rye flavor, with some tea and lemon coming through on the finish. The alcohol content is 6.2% ABV. While drinking the beer, all I could think about was what an amazing beer the Hoss was. The best word I can use to describe it is wonderful, as it is the best rye I've had to date.
