This is my least favorite of the Shiner brews I’ve tried do far. Kinda disappointed in this beer. I like German beer, this is supposed to be German beer and if it is, it’s not a good one....

Another good find from Shiner. This Kosmos Reserve pours a golden amber color with good scent of wheat and malts. It has a very bold flavor of herbs but is surprisingly mellow. A very surprising taste for a pale lager.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice looking, lightly orange to tan, clear, with a very nice head and lacing.
Aroma is kinda grapey and fruity, a little malty, not very hopping.
Taste isn’t quite what I expected, despite the category I think it’s pretty average in taste. Kinda sweet and grainy/corny with a little fruitiness but not enough hoppiness.
Body is light and drinkable, slightly sweet aftertaste.
Overall it’s ok but not one of spoetzl’s best.
