“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.”

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....

Pours gold into a shaker. Bright white soapy head with medium retention recedes leaving gloppy sheets. Stale beer mung aromas. Dry and fruity with sour malt and wet earth.

Pours golden, head dissipates quickly. Aroma very malty, lagerish. A little bread. Taste corn flakes, bread, a little sweet, a hint of hops. Better than I expected, still not exciting.

Rated based on notes taken 11 Nov 2012 -- Not impressed with this beer. Just a step above the crappy American Lagers.

Bottle from Capital Market. Medium golden in color. Nose is malty with a good bit of graininess. Malty flavor with a light graininess to it. A touch of grassy hoppiness in a fairly crisp finish. Pretty tasty.

Light smooth grain aroma. Solid white finger thick head that lingers for quite awhile. Light grain and malt taste with just a touch of bitterness. Light body and refreshing.

My Mom picked up a variety pack while in Texas, visiting my Uncle. This is one of the offerings. Pours a golden color, with a white head. Not much of an aroma. The bottle claims this beer is "hop-jacked", however I am not tasting that. I would say this is a typical lager. Not bad, but nothing spectacular.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours golden, clear, fluffy white head. Aroma of bread, grass notes and some malts. Taste is sweet, malty, grain and yeast notes slight bitterness some grassy hops. Quite alright, drinkable and serves its purpose.

Poured from a 12 oz. chilled dark brown glass bottle into a clean larger glass. Very enjoyable. A step above. A beer aroma of lightened hay; nifty coloring with a pleasantly cloudy golden hue; taste is good, a touch sweet for my taste buds. Medium to slight body. Overall, and again, considering the choices and price, my goodness, Shiner, thank you!
