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.”

Beerenberger (1555) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Aroma is sweet malts, barnyard, and hints of grain. Pours a clear amber with a mostly diminishing white head and no lacing. The taste has a light sweet flavor - grain, biscuit, and notes of sweet malt. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, not great but an ok beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

raymow (958) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2015
bottled - not that bad. Not much aroma. Pale golden color. Malt character, not much on the hop front but thats not really expected anyway. Very drinkable.

Old rating. Gold pour. Crisp malts, a little straw and some light hop. Nothing special.

badhack (380) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Clean, light lager with some hopping. Light body, straw and lighter malt flavors. I’d drink this if I saw it on tap or buy a 6 pack for a bbq.

ordybill (428) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Poured from 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- mild aroma of malt and caramel. Appearance- A nice dark golden color with a fairly large off-white head. Taste- Has a yeasty flavor with a hint of caramel and some hop added for good measure. Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Has a light and crisp finish. Overall- A slightly better than average beer, I would drink it again but I wouldn’t go out of my way for it.

KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAR 7, 2015
The pour is a clear medium amber with a white frothy head. The aroma was somewhat mild with a wet cardboard adjunct odor, a mild hint of floral hops and a light touch of sweet malts. I find this to be a smooth crisp brew with a slight caramel malty taste and a decent hoppy finish. Definitely a well balanced Lager and would be a great brew for a nice spring day... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

foyle (293) - Wyoming, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Poured from 12 oz bottle into schooner glass. Appearance: a 2" sudsy off white head falls moderately with some decent lacing remaining. Color is a clear deep golden with moderate streaming carbonation. Aroma: fairly mild, just some light bread crust and a bit of sweet caramel. Mouthfeel: fairly light and crisp with a mild, easy finish. Flavor: toasted bread, some caramel and raisin, a decent hop bite in the finish and lingering in the swallow. Overall: very good but not outstanding. Somewhat reminds me of Shiner Oktoberfest but with less flavor.

Brandon1989 (401) - Euless, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head that left quite a bit of lacing. The aroma is bready, cereal, malts, some hops. The taste is rather sweet malts, caramel, and toffee with only faint hops.

Pours clear golden with a medium white head, very fine lacing, moderate retention. Caramel, hay, bready aroma. Light body, lively, smooth. Mildly sweet, mild bitter finish. Easy drinking, well balanced.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2015 Thanks to the neighbors. Oh this wasn’t so bad, not great but for a regular old lager it didn’t have the macro taste. Serving: Bottle

This beer is fragrant with hops. It displays the characteristics of a continental European lager, though more Dutch than German. It is not quite as dry as I would like but a pleasant and drinkable brew anyway.
