“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.”

The taste is syrupy and unpleasant to me. Really just like a basic boring bad beer. Ok.

LetsGoState (702) - 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.

milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 11, 2010
Aroma of pine hops, rice/corn and malt. Flavor has a combination of malt, crisp hops, and lager notes. Not bad overall.

wmubronco1992 (670) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - AUG 20, 2011
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.

Dacrza (664) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Situation: Feeling good, so I will review a second... Glassware: Standard pilsner... Appearance: choppy, off-whitehead creates islands of thin head atop a copper-bronze body with little effervescence... Aroma: having trouble smelling the hops promised by its label; malt is present... Palate: balanced mouthfeel with an oily end to a medium-bodied intro... Taste: the straight-up lager base that Shiner has perfected seems slightly amiss here, with the subtle fruitiness not distinguinshing tself among its fellow Shiners... Overall: I began eating chips halfway through this tasting--it wasn’t in search of a proper pairing--actually, not an indictment, but the word RESERVE usually is, well, reserved for a beer that stands out... and this does not...

drdisque (664) - Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2010
pours clear with medium foamy head. Mild floral hop aroma. Very fruity hoppy initial bite that subsides into cereal malty nothingness which slides into the finish. A lot of good ideas not perfectly constructed.

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.

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.
