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.”

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

OD40oz (774) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - DEC 8, 2010
Pours a clear amber with a quickly diminishing off white head. Slight hoppy smell. Tasted more hoppy than it’s aroma. Clean, refreshing finish. Good brew!

LetsGoState (771) - 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.

generallee08 (767) - New York, USA - JUL 18, 2014
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. There is not much here at all really just faint pale grainy malt notes with some light hints of grassy hops. 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.

TizzleJizzle (763) - 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...

drdisque (740) - 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.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Bottle from Total Wine & More in Cherry Hill, NJ. Clear light amber under a short light tan head. No lacing. Not much aroma aside from a little straw. Not much going on in the flavors either. A few notes of lemon and very weak toffee now and again with a restrained malt presence. Thin texture and no noticeable finish. This was included in a sampler pack. Not worth seeking out on it’s own.

morrdt (715) - Dirty Mo’, North Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2014
12 ounce single bottle from a Shiner six pack purchased at the local Harris Teeter. Pours a light copper color with a thin, disappearing head. Aroma is grain with a hint of floral hops. Taste is similar with a bit of a bitterness. Not bad, but Shiner can do better!

EricTeusink (700) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 11, 2013
This beer randomly appeared in my fridge. Hey, free tick. Pours pale amber with light white head. Scent is sweaty and sweet. Starts grainy sweet and finishes barely bitter. Light-medium and heavily carbonated. Bottle - Source Unknown

wmubronco1992 (688) - 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.
