COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
ďKosmos Spoetzl knew how to brew great beer. Born in Bavaria, Kosmosí 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.Ē

Pretty light and drinkable lager. I enjoyed it and would happily drink a case of it but nothing special.

Bottle; clear and golden, without any hint of carbonation. This is an every-manís beer, without much to be offended by, and little to get excited about either. Slightly corny, but not obliquely so. Eh ... (#4139, 6/18/2011)

Shiner Kosmos Reserve has a thin-to-medium, egg shell-colored head and a clear, copper appearance, with a good amount of bubbles streaming up and some lacing left behind. The aroma is of roasted barley and, surprisingly, of some slight citrus. Taste is of barley, and a decent hoppiness shows up here. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Shiner Kosmos Reserve finishes crisp, clean, and very refreshing. Overall, this is one of the better Shiner offerings. I recommend it! RJT

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 9, 2011
Bottle:   Translucent golden, very clear, thin whispy white head, sparce lacing.   Pale bready nose, fairly malty.   Sweet malty start, even a little bit of peppercorn or something.   Not half bad.   Pale breadiness.   Seems pretty smooth.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   The breadiness for some reason reminds me of waffles.   Clean on the finish.   Simple straight forward lager that has the right amount of sweetness.   Fairly tasty.

Clear light gold, small white head. Sweet honeyed cereal nose, little honeydew melon. Clean molasses sweetness, medium bodied, dries out in the finish with some hay.

I would not call it hop-jacked, but at least itís got more hops than macro lagers (which isnít too hard to achieve anyway). I donít remember this beer much, but then again that means it wasnít very memorable.

A rather uneventful, session type beer that does not stand out in any way. Iíll pass next time.

orangeish golden colour with a small frothy white head. Aroma is definately on the malty side with carmel notes. Flavours of corn, caramel and soft hops. A pretty decent lager all around.

Shiner Kosmos is an orange beer with aroma that is very hoppy, as far as lagers go. The hops are rather herbal. The malty aroma comes out in sipping. Itís a rather subtle beer, but itís alright.

12 oz bottle from Shiner Variety Pack. Pours a nice clear golden color, minimal lacing. Aroma is yeasty and bready like a typical lager but with a hoppy floral accent. Not as skunky as many lagers. Some toastiness as well. Taste is a good mix between sweet malty and bitter but really nothing too overpowering. Palate is smooth, slightly bitter aftertaste. I like it better than the traditional Shiner Bock, not a bad beer.
