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.”

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a Pilsener glass. The label has a brief description of the beer but no ABV or freshness date. Appearance: Its body has a light golden color and good clarity with a tall white soapy head. This tall head quickly settles down to thin film of foam. Lacing is slick and minimal. Smell: There is not much here at all really just faint pale grainy malt notes with some light hints of grassy hops. Taste/Palate: There is a light sweetness from a white bready maltiness and cereal grain adjunct notes. The hops balance this with some grassy/earthy bitterness. There is a slight citrus like acidity as well in there. The finish is soft and dry with light carbonation. Notes: This one is drinkable but just kind of boring.

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

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 (628) - 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...

LetsGoState (616) - 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
