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.”

12oz into a glass. Pours a bronzed orange fire amber color. And thats all thats good with this one. Like the premium lager but a different color. Sessionable is in its favor, downable after mowing the lawn, giving to a sort of friend who thinks hes getting a good beer would be the best furture for any of these. Bland metallic and corn mixture is still bouncing around in my mouth. Pay it forward, this shiner is awesome.

smaynard6000 (694) - 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.

Aroma of pine hops, rice/corn and malt. Flavor has a combination of malt, crisp hops, and lager notes. Not bad overall.

Part of the Family Reunion 6’er.. Pours clear golden with a short lasting white head with decent lacing. Nose is grainy/bready.... almost soda bread combined with a lite grassy hoppiness. Flavor is all about the cereal grains.. tons of malt/wheat/oats...etc... Balances okay with a lite hop profile. Carbonation is pretty high... body is a little light. Okay brew... gets worse as it warms up.. only okay.

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.

TizzleJizzle (673) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAY 25, 2014
12 oz bottle. Poured a boring clear amber with a white top that vanished completely after 1 minute. Taste of grain, slight apple, grass, and a copper finish. Fizzy carbonation, thin mouthfeel. Yawn...

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Bottle pours a clear golden body that is topped by a small white head. Some spotty lace is left on the glass. Aroma has light spicy hops, vague fruity esters, and some bready toasted caramel. Light medium body is crisply carbonated. Taste is dominated by a bready caramel malt sweetness. Subdued grassy hops balance nicely. A pleasantly drinkable and inoffensvie mainstream style lager.

Bottle from Shiner assorted 6 pack. Pours a honey color. Small white head. Mild lager aroma. A bit of roasty/toastiness that sets it apart from an everyday lager. Easy drinking with a nice clean finish. Could drink a couple of these. Nothing special here, but a decent beer. Really like the idea of this assorted 6 pack. Wasn’t looking for it, but when the opportunity to try 5 new beers in a single 6 pack comes up you gotta buy that 6 pack.

Pours a golden yellow with no foam head. Has an aroma of bread and wheat. Flavor is also bread and wheat along with plenty of carbonation. Very little hops, despite what is advertised. Very weak in all regards - much like most commercial beers. Meh.
