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..

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass. An interesting somewhat hopped up addition by Shiner. One of their better beers, but still doesn’t blow me away.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle [12oz] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o garthicus. Pours a clear golden-orange with an average size off-white head. Aroma: Yuck: Grain, vegetables and a bit of garbage. Sweet and watery flavour of grain and corn syrup. Light bodied. Not good at all.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle ($1.48 Single) and served in standard pint glass: Pours a clean golden hue with a good fizzy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of wet pale grains, corn, slight oxidization, buttery and a some grassy hop. The taste is exactly what you expected (sadly), a adjunct influenced lager with a light skunked character. There is a bit more bitterness upon the finish than found in most cheap ’merican versions but that is like putting lipstick on a pig. To call this "reserve" give an impression of higher quality... not the case.

Pours copper/gold with a thin white head. Smells of corn, some spice, stale hops, earthy. Tastes of caramel, spice, some sweet citrussy splashes on the finish. Very drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Translucent golden, very clear, thin whispy white head, sparce lacing.   Pale bready nose, fairly malty.   Sweet malty start, even a little bit of peppercorn or something.   Not half bad.   Pale breadiness.   Seems pretty smooth.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   The breadiness for some reason reminds me of waffles.   Clean on the finish.   Simple straight forward lager that has the right amount of sweetness.   Fairly tasty.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle (12oz). Shared by garthicus with me and blankboy. Clear amber, no head. Grain and tupentine aroma, sweet and harsh. Tastes like fake maple syrup aged in an old LawnBoy bag - ugh. Light, slick, still mouthfeel, sweet, with an ugly aftertaste. Tick - and NEVER again.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle - part of their "Family Reunion" six pack. Pours a medium copper, thin white head. Pretty much a neutral aroma, brief hints of cardboard. Flavor has some brief caramel accents, a hint of spent grain, just a trace of nuttiness. Mouthfeel is thick enough for the style. Decent, just slightly bland.
