“Kosmos Spoetzl knew how to brew great beer. Born in Bavaria, Kosmos’ mastery of German brewing carried him as far as Egypt before he found his way to the small Texas town of Shiner. Our proud brewery still carries his name and commitment to excellence in brewing. This full-flavored, hop-jacked lager is every bit as unique as the man himself and our way of saluting the brewmaster who started it all.”

Was a little concerned at first as it smelled of hops, and the dry aged hops note on the bottle wasn’t helping. I’m not a hop fan, but this one is not as strong on hops as I thought it may be. In fact it’s mild in all flavors. Not bad, but not a whole lot going on.

Not much to this. Little taste little aromas. The color is pretty good though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really didn’t have much taste at all, very thin. Slight roasted, finishes clean and no real issue there, but just not much to taste.

smaynard6000 (1006) - Apopka, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a yellowish amber color with minimal white head. Aroma very faint. A little bit sweet and changing to bitter. Slightly creamy mouthfeel and a crisp finish. Not bad.

Had this on a hot spring TX day out of the mixed pack and maybe it just caught me at the right time bc I actually enjoyed it. Light malt aroma. Golden in colo with slight white head. Clean tasting lager (light bready sweetness), but not too complex.

Delicious creamy lager. Wish I could get a full 6pk of these and not just 1 in a family pk.

seymour (1897) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - APR 2, 2012
Tasted bottle from Shiner Family Reunion mix-pack into shaker glass. It poured a predictable golden color with weak white foam. Cut-grass, mild malts, almost non-existent hops, some vague adjunct sweetness, and mild pepper phenols from yeast, yet pretty tasteless overall. Not skunky nor offensive, at least. A totally average light-bodied lager, perhaps somewhat pilsener-like, but much less nuanced than classic German examples. Thin, watery, and a bit metallic like most Shiner beers, sadly. This is a brewery I always want to love, despite my unsentimental tastebuds.

Bottle: ok, compared to most pale lagers, this is not bad. However, Shiner does not make a very good beer.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear gold with minimal head. Aroma of some grains and a little grassy hops. Taste is about the same. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, not too bad. This is probably one of my favorite shiner beers.
