COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
ďKosmos Spoetzl knew how to brew great beer. Born in Bavaria, Kosmosí 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.Ē

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.

Nice looking, lightly orange to tan, clear, with a very nice head and lacing. Aroma is kinda grapey and fruity, a little malty, not very hopping. Taste isnít quite what I expected, despite the category I think itís pretty average in taste. Kinda sweet and grainy/corny with a little fruitiness but not enough hoppiness. Body is light and drinkable, slightly sweet aftertaste. Overall itís ok but not one of spoetzlís best.

euniceradio (435) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - FEB 13, 2016
12oz bottle to tulip. Pours clouded orange, white sticky ring head. Aroma of grapefruit, lemon, orange, sweet bread. Taste of corn, sour citrus, honey, light pine, cracker, and some yeast spices. Mouthfeel is light, big carb.

I would not call it hop-jacked, but at least itís got more hops than macro lagers (which isnít too hard to achieve anyway). I donít remember this beer much, but then again that means it wasnít very memorable.

12 oz bottle pours a rosey gold color with a thin white foamy head. Aroma of floral hops hay and cereal. Taste the same. Faint dead flowers, citrus, barnyard. Dry perfumey finish.

MarkBarnes (407) - Waterville, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Nov. 27, 2013; 12 oz. bottle. A slightly maltier, less boring version of Shinerís other premium lager.

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 (393) - 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.

mybrainhurts (390) - North Dakota, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Aroma is grains, straw and grass. Flavors of grains, straw, stale bread, and a hint of minerals. Somewhat herbal and muddled finish. Even though it isnít a winner it is more drinkable than say.... Weinhardís reserve. Ah, whatever.

Cajun (388) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle - Pours clear gold, FLAT. Part of variety sixer that has also been flat. May be old. Nose of buttered toast, with hay, and hint of fruit. Similar flavors, but with a shot of skunk. It has to be this bottle. Some hops aftertaste.
