COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“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.”

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 24, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2012 Bottle. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma and flavor are generically malty with just a touch of floral hops -- it’s certainly not "jacked" on anything. A somewhat upscale macro lager.

Sledutah (5104) - Utah, USA - MAY 23, 2010
12oz bottle from Uly
Appearance: Clear dark golden with a small white head leaving some lacing
Aroma: Sweet malts, honey and some citrus
Taste: Pale malts, some caramel, grainy with some bitterness in the finish
OK.

JohnnyJ (4551) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 22, 2010
Pours a slight darker golden color then the rest, white head. Grainy malt, light citrus, hops, and a touch of sweetness and corn. For a reserve beer that is supposed to be "full-flavored, hop-jacked" this is extremely boring.

docsteigs (537) - Texas, USA - MAY 19, 2010
Pours lager brown, smells sweet malts, kind of bland; tastes common hops with straightforward lager maltiness

lawman834 (230) - Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2010
Bottle from a Family Reunion 6’er poured into a pint glass. Poured a clear golden with a thin white head. Smells of hops and caramel malt. The taste is pretty uninterresting. Certainly not unpleasant, just nothing special at all. Thin and watery with mild hints of caramel malt and grassy hops.

12 oz. bottle - Nice roasty, even toasty malt aroma. Clear golden color with creamy off white head. Good head retention not much activity after a while. Decent tastes and hops were more noticible after warming up. A little hoppy aftertaste remains on the back of the palate. Overall a good blend.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Pour is rich golden with a big fluffy off white head...smell is sweet and strongly cereal with an almost thickness to it...some grassy hop notes as well...taste is very sweet and cereal grainy with a cloying and thick finish...blech.

AmEricanbrew (6008) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - APR 23, 2010
Clear golden color/ white head. Mild peppery, salty, grainy pale malt aromas. Light frothy mouthfeel. Mild lagered, grainy pale malt, black pepper flavors are on the dry side.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - APR 11, 2010
Dark yellow, good head, good carbonation. Not much going on with the aroma, considering the bottle talks about hops. It’s in the taste that some hops flavor comes through, rising just above some malty sweetness. There some fruit flavors - perhaps that of peaches that comes through with the finish. I’m not sure why this one has fared so badly on RateBeer. It’s not an outstanding brew, but I think it holds its own.

coyforce (616) - Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2010
Aroma is of light hops. Pours a nice light amber color with a bright white head. Medium carbonation and smooth on the palate. Taste is of a light resin and hops.
