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.”

cheap (4443) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2009
Clean smell, pale lager look with a slightly scummy top. Somewhat strong malty taste. Turns a little fruity at times. Goes down fairly easy. Has that typical shiner personality. Decent finsh, could have more manners.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Pours a golden amber color with thin head. Aroma is sweet malts, but very weak. Flavor is sweet, but with a slightly skunky taste and a bit of metallic. Finish is thin and fizzy. Not one of Shiner’s finer moments.

topherh (1915) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - MAR 22, 2010
Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is floral, earthy hop, and light grainy malt. Flavor is light malt, watery hop, lightly bitter finish.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 2, 2010

Mora2000 (5893) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 4, 2010
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.

degbert (1300) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 6, 2010
Bottle. Nose is tangerine, toast, a touch of skunk. Pours a dark gold with a white, fine-grained head. Typical lager taste, not bad, not great, but with a touch of metallic overtone. The description may say hop-jacked, but I can’t taste much at all. Shatteringly mediocre.

mybrainhurts (370) - 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 isn’t a winner it is more drinkable than say.... Weinhard’s reserve. Ah, whatever.

jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Very light light yellow pour with almost non existent head. Aroma is spiced with slight hints of malt. Flavor is sweet, slight caramel, and a weak finish. Different but not necessarily that great.

TChrome (1435) - Bedford, Texas, USA - APR 30, 2014
Beer pours light copper color with a quickly dissipating head. Grainy aroma with a hint of floral hops. Taste is sweet. Needs more bitterness for balance. Blah.

rating due to psychic hypnosis via Buffalo alien. This is a mess. A hopped up and unbalance lager. Ugh. As a hop grower I am insulted at the waste of decent hops in this concoction of abject commercialism. Bleah.
