Hoss Rye Lager

I went to a party last night. It was a "Bunco" party with 20-25 people there. I had never heard of Bunco before, but apparently it is Latin for communicable disease. With 25 people touching and rolling 20 dice and rotating tables and handling the game cards and sharing all the snack bowls for three hours, the germ sharing reached epic proportions.

Whatever, I am not a germ freak! We had a great time, had some good food, and I drank way too much. Mostly Coronas and a few Sam Adams Cherry Wheats, but I was forced to drink a tequila shot and some fake Baileys too. My headache is almost gone this morning.

Funniest moment: when one of the guests told another she didn't know too well that he had some chocolate cheesecake on his cheek while simultaneously reaching out to scrape it off. Turned out to be a mole and she drew blood with her fingernail. That was super embarrassing! Close second was the discussion on what happened to the cap for the bottle of rum. It was getting ridiculous when one enterprising person put a coke bottle top on it. Fit perfectly. End of discussion. I have a picture you may never see!

Today I'm drinking Hoss Rye Lager brewed by Great Divide Brewing Company in Denver, Colorado. This beer won a bronze medal at the Great American Beer Festival in 2009. The label is a nice red with the silhouette of a lumberjack in a forest. Bottled March 4, 2010.

Weak aroma, just a little grainy and sweet. Rye flavors pop out right away. Very malty with bread flavors. There is a very noticeable spicy kick as well, which I love. Medium carbonation works great. In the background is a little fruitiness as well. Nice beer, flavorful. And I really like that spice! Check this one out!
