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.

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.

Looks like a regular macro, maybe a slightly deeper color. Smells metallic and neutral. Taste is not bad. A little bitter, carbonated. Just OK

TizzleJizzle (623) - 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...

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.

Aroma is of light hops. Pours a nice light amber color with a bright white head. Medium carbonation and smooth on the palate. Taste is of a light resin and hops.

LetsGoState (603) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Appearance is a light yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is on the weak side. Taste is nothing special - just a plain lager. Overall just an average beer.

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 4, 2011
Bottle. A - Copper color and somewhat dark for the style. Average to slightly below average sized head of a light foamy white head. Pretty good retention leaving a thin layer of lace. S - Fairly hoppy for the style although not really all that hoppy. Slight lemony aroma with a touch of grassy hops. Strong pilsner/pale malt. Some grainy aroma and maybe a hint of herbal hops. Nothing great, just a slightly hoppy pale lager. T - Slight grain and bready malt flavor is the strongest. Somewhat hoppy, at least for the style with a touch of grassy and even less herbal and tea flavors. A decent lemony flavor. Subtle mineral flavor as well. M - Light body with average carbonation. Crisp light feel. D - Goes down easy, but I have no reason to want to drink more. Slightly hoppy for the style, but pretty bland overall. Notes: Not horrible for the style, but not great either. Slightly hoppy and slightly bready malt. Nothing special just average or slightly above average beer for the style. Nothing I would come back to, even on a hot summer day there are other beers I’d rather have.

I love this beer, its great. The flavor is there, the texture is great, creamy and smooth. Kinda dark, sweet, earthy,subtle carmly bread, vanilla, medium, heaviness. The palate is saturated slightly with toasted slight nutty flavors. Try one it will surprise and delight you.

Drinkable, refreshing, but no character to be found. Give me just about any Canadian lager over this one, even macro.
