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.”

From notes: Pours clear golden amber with a thin, 1-finger white head. Aroma is earthy, with perhaps a touch of citrus. Body is medium-to-thin. Very mild flavors. Yeasaty, with a slight citrusy note. nothing special.

Lemke10 (956) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Another good find from Shiner. This Kosmos Reserve pours a golden amber color with good scent of wheat and malts. It has a very bold flavor of herbs but is surprisingly mellow. A very surprising taste for a pale lager.

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.

tennessejed420 (940) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2011
bottle. Pours orange tined gold with frothy white head. Aroma is lemon, grass, soft skunk. Balanced flavor with lemon, hay, some grassy hops on the finish, which evolve into a watery skunk like flavor. Medium carbonation, medium to light bodied, but not resembling a light beer or anything. As it warms a little bit of a soapiness. Not the worst lager - although its uninteresting and there are some weird flavors going on in here none of them are outright bad, it is drinkable to be sure.

smaynard6000 (939) - Apopka, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a yellowish amber color with minimal white head. Aroma very faint. A little bit sweet and changing to bitter. Slightly creamy mouthfeel and a crisp finish. Not bad.

Bricks (925) - Delaware, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Looks like a regular macro, maybe a slightly deeper color. Smells metallic and neutral. Taste is not bad. A little bitter, carbonated. Just OK

12 oz bottle from the six type summer sampler case. Plenty of hops with a medium body. Surprised this wasn’t so bad. Good antidote for the summer heat.

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Reviewed 3/15/2009 (bottle): Pours a big fizzy white head, that extremely quickly diminishes. Orange-yellow colored body, extremely clear looking. Malty, English malty aroma. Some nuttiness, but mostly smelling of adjuncts, maybe some vegetables? Nutty fizzy taste, over-carbonated tasting. Some of that same vegetable-ness. Somewhat refreshing. Some hoppy bitterness, but none of the grapefruitiness, or other aspect of the hops is present. Some corn taste, maybe. Meh. Does not get any better as it warms, less tasty.

Aroma: hoppy aroma, some fruit hues Appearance: clear amber color, nice thick head Taste: hoppy flavor but not bitter, interesting Palate: very slight hop aftertaste, doesn't last very long, not to dry, slightly creamy Overall: I like this beer. I'd take another ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
