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.”

radio_nowhere (701) - Maryland, USA - NOV 24, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2013 12oz bottle in Shiner variety 6-pack (kind of a Shiner marathon night). Poured into lager glass amber-ish golden color, very thin white head. Aroma of biscuit, sweet malt and maybe the slightest of hops. Taste brings out some grassy hops. Light and smooth mouthfeel. Easy drinking.

Ferris (2017) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 2, 2014
Bottle - Light skunk and light sweet malts. Clear gold with a rich white head. Light citrus and some grape with a bit of skunky hops and slight bitter finish. Closer to a Euro Lager but still too sweet.

Surprisingly tasty and refreshing beer. Nice malty aroma. Malty on the palette, Smooth, malty flavor. It was hard to know what to expect from reading the description on the bottle, although it was interesting reading a little bit of Shiner Brewery lore. Serving type: bottle

bottle. golden with small head. after tasting this beer, I’d say who ever wrote the description of the beer really didn’t like Kosmos Spoetzl.

basaywhat (35) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Pours a clear dark gold with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Smell is of malt, grain, grass, and slight metallic aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and grassy flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer but nothing too memorable.

LetsGoState (563) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Appearance is a light yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is on the weak side. Taste is nothing special - just a plain lager. Overall just an average beer.

jmcgavin12 (427) - Madison, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Very light light yellow pour with almost non existent head. Aroma is spiced with slight hints of malt. Flavor is sweet, slight caramel, and a weak finish. Different but not necessarily that great.

Beerman6686 (3870) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2014
This poured a darker yellow color with a white head. Aroam was of grass, pale malt and nothign else. Flavor was the same, very bland and boring although not offensive. Why bother really?

Cerveja simples, coloração levemente acobreada, pouco lupulada. Não tem o espirito craft...
