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.”

SODAK14 (266) - Rapid City, South Dakota, USA - JAN 28, 2013
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....

Lemke10 (682) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
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.

vipinvelp (1889) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2013
Clear copper yellow with quickly dissapearing foam head. Aroma is mainly barley, some hop. Taste is bittersweet. Aftertaste is dry in mouth, somewhat bitter. (Houston 201301)

Botella. Amber clear colour. Corn caramel grass aroma. Ok mouthfeel. Flavour is mild with caramel, grain, grass and bit malt to it.
