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.”

jimmie65 (330) - Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Ckear dark amber pour w/ a small white head. Aroma is sweet fruit, grain. Flavor has bitter and sweet but not well-balanced. Fruit, grain, some not pleasant vegetable flavor. Drinkable but just barely so.

Poured from a bottle. Clear golden color, medium white head. No real noticeable nose. Light body with a sweet grain flavor and a medium finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

czar (5377) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2015
pours unclear bright gold with a shy white head, little retention/lacing. booze, toasted sugary malts, malt extract, caramel stench - like found in cheap acrid and almost rotten fruitieness, iron and other mineral traces. loose carbonation, light to medium body - oily, semi-sweet, metallic and bland woodsy-grassy finish. blah.

onceblind (5222) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Clear deep golden with a thin Rocky white head. Funky earhy biscuit with a full yeasty lageriness. Clean quaffable body like all other Shiners; but with lots of crisp cracker and bread crust lager tones. It’s just a crisp lager without any corn notes or badness. But it also has no nuance. Clean and well made, but it’s still a blank canvas.

AlfredReece92 (31) - Taylor, Arkansas, USA - MAY 9, 2015
I admit I like the smell asks the appearance when I poured out out of the bottle... But the taste just wasn’t there for me. The alcohol taste came through a bit too much and it left a after taste the reminded me of really cheap vodka... Try everything once but I won’t be buying it again

LowBrau (99) - Tonawanda, New York, USA - APR 23, 2015
Medium gold color. Nice combination of medium sweetness and alcohol. Light bitterness and a touch of fragrance from the hops. Toffee aroma. Very enjoyable.

raymow (985) - 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.

rdixon77 (1441) - Georgia, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Old rating. Gold pour. Crisp malts, a little straw and some light hop. Nothing special.

badhack (391) - 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 (539) - 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
