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.”

This is my least favorite of the Shiner brews I’ve tried do far. Kinda disappointed in this beer. I like German beer, this is supposed to be German beer and if it is, it’s not a good one....

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.

foyle (292) - 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.

bjt512 (292) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Rating from notes taken in early August, when I was having trouble connecting with the site ... this has just enough hops to be a really confused, muddy beer. It’s smooth and thin like a macro brew should be, but has pretenses of being something more. Don’t be fooled by the pretense. This is a disappointment that is easily eclipsed even by Shiner’s mediocre offerings.

Delicious creamy lager. Wish I could get a full 6pk of these and not just 1 in a family pk.

Bottle. Dark blonde with fluffy white head. Aroma is nutty sweet malt, light caramelization, light toast. Taste is medium caramel and nutty without any mineral or salt, grainy, some grain. Body is watery. Not bland completely bland or boring, but some oddness.

TheBeerBaron (261) - Florida, USA - APR 17, 2011
Copper colored with a small white head that to its credit laces nicely down the glass, the beer is not visibly carbonated. A floral aroma with orange and vanilla with spice. The taste is mostly a cereal wheat with sweet mandarin and honey flavors. Its an ale that lacks a notable hops taste but ha enough to counteract the sweet citrus beginning. The palate is a tad thick and bloating for such a sweet ale. In summation I am glad they "reserve" this beer and release more of the preferable Shiner Bock to us consumers.

RasterMaster (258) - , Oklahoma, USA - APR 15, 2011
Bottle from "Family Reunion" six pack.Golden blonde pour into thin white foamy head that quickly dissipates into melting lacing and a pool of swirling foam as carbonated bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass. Aroma of malty grain and yeasty biscuit. Initial flavor of malty straw that slowly fades into a grassy finish.

tone77 (256) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2012
pours a copper color. Smell is of malts, caramel. Taste is malts, some hops, a bit of caramel. Overall complex for this style and an enjoyable beer.

Aroma of malty caramel. Nice clear red tinted amber pour, with some nice bubbles. A little too much carbonation makes the beer fizzy in the mouth, makes it difficult to taste much. FIrst time I had this beer I thought it was pretty good, now I am not to sure.
