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.”

Spookgolds (241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Bottle from a variety pack. Pours clear golden, with a quickly disappearing head. Nothing worth noting. Reminds me of a basic lager, not great. Not really even good. Won’t have again.

beaz1591 (238) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Pours and orange/amber color with bubbly head. A full flavored beer that leaves a filmy aftertaste.

lawman834 (229) - Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2010
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.

mintzmeet (221) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Nice smell, a little bland. Good opaque translucent color. Nice "wet" mouthfeel. Strongest flavor is a a graininess. Refreshing and crisp. A boutique bud light.

benfergy (208) - Valley City, North Dakota, USA - MAY 21, 2011
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.

xs2500 (180) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Pours tan with a thick white that dissipates quickly. Taste like flat carbonated water with a hint carmel, drinkable but not enjoyable.

yinzerbeernut (180) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2009
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.

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.
