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.”

BMan1113VR (7869) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 17, 2009
Pours with no head over a very light cardboard hued body. Aroma of cereal, light german hops, a bit of dust and a touch of DMS (cooked corn). Taste is a bit of dirt or soil, metallic copper and DMS. Bone dry mouthfeel and a metallic finish. Kosmos should be rolling in his grave knowing this was named after him.

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2010
Bottled. Poured crystal-clear honeyed golden with a tall cap of white head. The aroma picked up bright, funky straw and vegetal notes upfront, with pale malts beneath.. this was offensive. The flavor found roughly the same stuff.. pale malts at the core with just a little interesting honey extending outward.. vegetal bitterness surrounded and stuck on the finish.. soured up the belly a tad after the swallow. Light-bodied and tacky on the palate.. bad stuff.
