3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Pours clear amber with white head. Apple with honey aroma. Light apple flavor with hint of grass. Light session beer but would like more flavor.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from a Family Reunion 6’er poured into a pint glass.
Poured a clear golden with a thin white head. Smells of hops and caramel malt. The taste is pretty uninterresting. Certainly not unpleasant, just nothing special at all. Thin and watery with mild hints of caramel malt and grassy hops.

Shiner Kosmos is an orange beer with aroma that is very hoppy, as far as lagers go. The hops are rather herbal. The malty aroma comes out in sipping. It’s a rather subtle beer, but it’s alright.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours tan with a thick white that dissipates quickly. Taste like flat carbonated water with a hint carmel, drinkable but not enjoyable.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light amber and sparkling clear. White head that disappears rapidly. Not much on nose but a hint of grass/straw. Light bodied and not much character or finish for a ’reserve’ beer. Expected much more.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours yellow amber and clear with come carbonation and a white head. Aroma is a bit skunk, grass, hop and dried fruit (apple?). Taste is warming but crisp without too much to it beyond a mildly fruity finish. A bit bready and decently carbonated. Does improve with some warming and as I drain the glass. One of the better Shiner beers I've had but nothing to write home about.

Everything about this beer is bringing up just one word to me, no matter what I try to think of differently to describe it: coppery. It looks coppery, it smells coppery, and God help me, it tastes coppery. I just hope coppery is a word.

I wish I could say more about this, but yeah, it is either a maltier version of their lager or a lighter version of their bock. Not sure...
