“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.”

Light amber in color with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of grain, cardboard, light hops and citrus. Taste is of cardboard, a little malt, musty hops, and metal.

cheap (4750) - 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.

BrewingFan (251) - Texas, USA - DEC 3, 2009
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.

Mora2000 (6097) - 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 (1483) - 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 (379) - 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.
