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.”

Bottle from sampler pack. Pours amber with white head. Aroma is biscuit and cereal malts, some grassiness, light floral notes, and faint funk. Flavor is dry malts, light funk, faint hops, and faint light fruit esters; dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

rgf001 (218) - München, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2014
12 oz bottle from Cosco. No detectable aroma. Amber color with white head that disappears quickly. Munich malt and noble hop taste. Drinkable but disappointing.

Itzjerm (1737) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Not that great of a beer. Has a floral astringent finish. No aroma no head. Odd for a premium lager, can’t say I’m impressed. better options by this brewer.

MarkSachon (759) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2014
12 oz bottle from the six type summer sampler case. Plenty of hops with a medium body. Surprised this wasn’t so bad. Good antidote for the summer heat.

TizzleJizzle (736) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAY 25, 2014
12 oz bottle. Poured a boring clear amber with a white top that vanished completely after 1 minute. Taste of grain, slight apple, grass, and a copper finish. Fizzy carbonation, thin mouthfeel. Yawn...

craven5000 (107) - Westville, Indiana, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Weak flavor. Watery taste. Watery on the palate. Mild but unpleasant after taste. Dumped out.

jb (2539) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Decent for the style. No off taste. Great boat beer anyways. I’d try it again.

reberiii (437) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2014
This is not good. Smells and tastes of creamed corn and a touch of cardboard. Finishes with a bitter soda and funky malt chaser. Not good.

BierMeHoos (352) - Maryland, USA - MAY 20, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2014 Bottle. Beer pours light copper color with a quickly dissipating head. Grainy aroma with a hint of floral hops. Taste is ok. Not a favorite.

Block (1756) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 11, 2014
This beer is OK. I wouldn’t say it’s "hop-jacked". Light and crisp. Flavors of grass and straw. A little bit of caramel in the malt backbone.
