“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.”

kramer (5910) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear ark gold body under a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin covering. The nose is mostly grainy malt with a minimal hoppiness, it smells a bit of hot cereal. The flavor is a little on the sweeter side than I’d like for a lager, some grainy husky malt on the finish. Very minimal bitterness. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Meh, even for Shiner this is on the weaker side of their efforts.

morrdt (715) - Dirty Mo’, North Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2014
12 ounce single bottle from a Shiner six pack purchased at the local Harris Teeter. Pours a light copper color with a thin, disappearing head. Aroma is grain with a hint of floral hops. Taste is similar with a bit of a bitterness. Not bad, but Shiner can do better!

Yeasty barley malt nose, somewhat nutty. Clear amber, thin head. Yeast, barley, tangy lemongrass. Light body, frothy mouthfeel.

jhamp9 (1683) - Corinth, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Clear amber pour with a nice white head that fades down to a cap. Aroma is grains and toffee. Taste is sweet caramely malts, grain, and some toast. Light body. Easy to drink.

Berard (631) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle. Caramel orange in color with a thin white head that lingers. Malt ara and bready chewy finish. Above average lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Metalchopz (3095) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2014
Purchased in Vermont, part of their tester mixed-pack. Pours a clean rich golden colour, with a little amber in it. Frothy warm cap with good retention and some thick foamy lace. Typical macro lager smell with sweet malt, alcohol, fake hops and corn. Even more corn in the taste with some mild adjuncts. Fake hops. Not the worst lager out there. Nice label, brew looks good, but nothing more than this.

DuffMan (9593) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 3, 2014
Bottle, shared with my wife. Brassy gold with an average white head. Grainy profile, maybe a touch of caramel sweetness, a whiff of hops in the finish. Not a bad lager actually!

slowrunner77 (10238) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2014
"Too much generic grainy aroma and cereal taste to it, without a whole lot else going on. Solidly in the not bad for a lager category, but not really good either. Got in a mix pack, won’t get again..."
