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.

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..

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle; clear and golden, without any hint of carbonation. This is an every-man’s beer, without much to be offended by, and little to get excited about either. Slightly corny, but not obliquely so. Eh ... (#4139, 6/18/2011)

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The beer pours a yellow orange color with a white head. The aroma is sweet adjuncts with some earthy hops. The flavor is a mix of corn, wheat, grassy hops and grapes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not terrible by any means, but not too good either.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden with a fluffy white head. Cereal grain aroma and a bland malty taste with a sharp yet oddly flat finish. Points for the paradox?

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
( 12oz bottle thanks to angrypirate) He must have been angry to have provided this one. What did I do to deserve this?!
Pours very clear amber, decent bubbly head with ok lacing. Nose of slight sour notes, meaty. The taste has a lager-like bite, grain, tart/old apples. Nice carbonation but a bad aftertaste.
Speaking of which, what exactly was Kosmos RESERVING this beer for?? Probably some in-laws that he hated. Here guys, drink this!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not a bad beer. It poured a deep golden body, lively with bubbling, and a tall white head. The aroma was moderately sweet, grainy, with a quiet earthiness. That pretty well describes the flavor, as well. It finished on a dry earthy note. Repeatable.
