“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.”

I wasn’t crazy about it. Tasted like your standard Macro brew American light lager.

Suttree (5186) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 8, 2009
Clear orange, nice rocky white head. Malty aroma, with a bit of a vegetal note. Nicely crisp. Mildly hoppy at first, then a touch of bready malt. Decent and quaffable.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Pours a golden amber color with thin head. Aroma is sweet malts, but very weak. Flavor is sweet, but with a slightly skunky taste and a bit of metallic. Finish is thin and fizzy. Not one of Shiner’s finer moments.

cheap (4109) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2009
Clean smell, pale lager look with a slightly scummy top. Somewhat strong malty taste. Turns a little fruity at times. Goes down fairly easy. Has that typical shiner personality. Decent finsh, could have more manners.

llcooldave (1101) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Sparkling clear copper color. Sweet malt aroma with a touch of herbs. Malty flavor with a slight hoppy bitterness. Overall it’s reminiscent of a pale ale almost, but it’s nice and easy drinking.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - MAY 14, 2009
12 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a clear golden color with a 3/4 finger thick off white head. Very light spotty lacing. Aroma is light grain, herbal hops, and faint esters. Flavor is lightly sweetened malt and light hops. Light to medium body. A decent lager.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 13, 2009
Pours amber with a fast receding head like a cowardly mutt in my neighbors back yard that barks until you approach it and it runs off. Not much of an aroma just some malt action. Medium nectar with superb carbonation. Big malty flavors protrude like the bulging bottom of a defected Wexford can. Sweet malty essence with mild bittering. A very flavorful lager reminds me of a light marzen. Not a bad beer at all.

beergod (103) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2009
Hop-Jacked? They most certainly have been jacked of all their hops by the taste of this crap! Pours a clean copper color with a small head that quickly disappeared before my eyes.Taste is mild. Light in every way,and the hops they promised are missing. Another example of Shiner making Tx look bad! Even for a lager this is weak...

travita (4053) - Frisco, Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Sort of a copper color with a decent beige colored head. The smell is a weird malty smell, grains, floral, and maybe some caramel. The taste is sweet, malts, and grass. Weak and boring.

JMerritt (1813) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Purchased in a Shiner variety 12-pack. Gold with a very slight haze. Small white head is mostly and quickly diminishing. Light malt nose with a little fresh straw, very faint. Light vanilla cookie malt flavor, turning to copper pennies and grass. SUPER carbonated, yowza. Bland, rather inoffensive lager.
