“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.”

yinzerbeernut (180) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2009
Light amber and sparkling clear. White head that disappears rapidly. Not much on nose but a hint of grass/straw. Light bodied and not much character or finish for a ’reserve’ beer. Expected much more.

xs2500 (187) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Pours tan with a thick white that dissipates quickly. Taste like flat carbonated water with a hint carmel, drinkable but not enjoyable.

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.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2009
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.

freekyp (1715) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2009
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.

bhensonb (12952) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 27, 2009
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.
