2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper golden with a small white frothybhea that quickly diminishes to nothing. The aroma is a fruit malt with raisin and caramel. The taste is a corn malt and wheat grass. Not much going on with this one.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Split a 12oz bottle, obtained from the Family Reunion variety pack. Clear gold/yellow color, very minimal head. Light, falling lacing. Light hops taste. Crisp carbonation, not overdone... Mildly bitter finish, but hardly any at all. Drinkable, somewhat refreshing. Not bad, but nothing special.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Very drinkable lager, but a lager nontheless. Pours an attractive crystal clear rich gold with a small white head. Aroma is cereal grains. Thinner palate with plenty of carbonation, and the taste is a simple yet somewhat pleasant grain and cereal bit. Doesn’t suck.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, shared with my wife. Brassy gold with an average white head. Grainy profile, maybe a touch of caramel sweetness, a whiff of hops in the finish. Not a bad lager actually!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from a mixed 12-pack. Pours a clear gold color with some visible rising carbonation and a small white head. Aroma of bready malts, peppery spice, crackers, and maybe a bit of grass and grains. Flavor of sweet, bready malts, toast, crackers, pepper and faint herbs. Light-bodied, with medium-high carbonation and a crisp, malty mouthfeel. Dry finish. I enjoyed this the most of the 4 new Shiner beers I tried in this pack; better than the Hefe, Alt, or Blonde.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle from Tmoney99. Pours a clear golden color with a medium whitish head. The aroma has some grainy, bready malt with a surprising amount of spicy grassy hops. Very little from the nose makes it into the flavor. This is a fairly clean straight forward lager. Nothing really bad here; it is what it is.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours gold with a fluffy white head. Sweet and a bit grainy aroma. The flavor is relatively clean with a light sweetness and a hint of grain. Not bad.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours brilliantly clear deep gold with weak white head. The mild aroma has notes of sweetness and fruity esters and maybe a touch of biscuit. The taste is sort of yuck with sweet slick malts, oddly thin body, graininess and floral hops. It ends with a touch of grainy malts and faint spicy hops. These faint flavors really don’t go well together here.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2010 what an absolute insult to Kosmos, but seeing as the Spoetzl family yet this get out to the public, fuck ’em.. Please Lord, if you are there, please strike down Spoetzl brewery into dust, and forever blank the worlds mind of this crap they call beer, from Bock to Leight to this garbage.. words aren’t enough, pure shit .. . pours a tawny tan, with almost no head after a minute .. . ever smelled a metal malt extract can that expired in 1994, then you know what this smells off.. . does have a decent mouth, as in it doesn’t linger too long, but horribly muddled with an odd metallic backbone bitterness, and a wrong expired maple syrup flavour, maybe some moldy hops ..maybe...
.. rerate: its drinkable, but still..
