2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is a bit dusty with nuts, toffee, yeast, and hay. The appearance is golden with an average head for this type of beer. The flavor is like the aroma which is somewhat unique. The palate is average. Overall it’s not a bad little beer. The aroma is a bit odd but nothing bad.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very light clear pour, smells a little off, nice orange-sweet taste, bitter aftertaste. They’ve made better beers that could have been named after Kosmos. It was a waste to name it after him, and a waste to have beeen my 400th beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Refreshing all malt lager with little hop bite. Pours a clear golden color with a weak fizzy while head. Balanced with a slight cereal malt character. Decent but unassuming. Good BBQ beer territory here.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from ericandersnavy (who hasn’t rated it) thanks!! Pours copper with a rapidly disappearing white head. Warm malty aroma with a hit of grassy hop. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is smoothly, caramelly with some spicey hop. Underrated. If the ABV was way up, it might be all the rage. If there were a barleywine bell curve, this could be placed on it. Off to the left quite a bit, but it suggests that sort of flavor.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Drinkable, refreshing, but no character to be found. Give me just about any Canadian lager over this one, even macro.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A golden beer with a 1 finger head. Aroma was peppery hops. The taste was the same as the aroma & was nothing special.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The last of the specialty six pack that had one of each. It pous to a full bodied tan head that settles quickly. Taste is somewhat different from other beers in the family. Goes down smoothly and begs for another to be consumed.

When you read "hop-jacked lager" on the label it gives hope of a amber ale. But then there’s the word ’lager’ thrown in and confusion ensues. Chalky, thin bodied, sub-par beer with light bitterness and a bit of citrus in the aftertaste. I thought I was in for a one-of-a-kind experience to honor Kosmos Spoetzl and was left with a bit of a stinker of a pale lager.
