“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.”

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.

Pours a rich amber with a medium-sized head. Some bread and light fruit notes. Some light hop flavor as well. 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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear light amber, minimal head. Aroma of straw. Hops? Drinkable but an odd aftertaste

eRock_2013 (350) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Basically a Shiner Bock with more bitterness, but one can discern a variety of subtle hop flavors as well. Pleasant smell with some sweet hoppiness, copper color with great lacing. Mild, balanced, and drinkable taste. Maybe just a bit thin on the palate, but a good balanced flavor. It would be nice if they sold this in six packs, but I've only found it in the shiner "family reunion" mixed packs. Recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

foyle (347) - Wyoming, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Poured from 12 oz bottle into schooner glass. Appearance: a 2" sudsy off white head falls moderately with some decent lacing remaining. Color is a clear deep golden with moderate streaming carbonation. Aroma: fairly mild, just some light bread crust and a bit of sweet caramel. Mouthfeel: fairly light and crisp with a mild, easy finish. Flavor: toasted bread, some caramel and raisin, a decent hop bite in the finish and lingering in the swallow. Overall: very good but not outstanding. Somewhat reminds me of Shiner Oktoberfest but with less flavor.

Discusting. Tastes like someone farted on some dirt, then mixed it in with the beer. And somehow has a metallic aftertaste

theOptimator (346) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Aroma is citrus sea breeze Saaz. Smells like a nice Pilsner. Appearance is crystal clear copper with medium white tan head. Taste is caramel malt, bit of toast, with nice aroma hopping. Little in the way of bitterness. Aroma hopping and sweet malt lingers nicely. Palate is light and crisp, very drinkable. Overall this is a good beer. Malt is a little boring but the aroma hopping is well done. Really more of a dry hopped light Vienna Lager.

astrofrk (341) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 4, 2012
Dark amber. Fast, white head. Aroma: Grains, caramel. Flavor: Grains, malt, caramel, hops and some spices I cannot identify. Unusual to the finish and difficult to rate. Going by the ratings, this is a beer you will either like or hate and I have never seen opinions differ so much. I for one do not like grainy lagers but I like this one so I guess I have to "Drink my words!"

Poobah (339) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Light amber with thin but persistent head and a sweet, wet grain nose. Lightly-carbonated with a thin body finishing with honey and slight bitterness.
