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.”

Is there a font that evokes a monotone drawl which would help describe my total lack of enthusiasm for the rebirth of a beer which states that it honors the founder when it actually pisses on him?

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..

Everything about this beer is bringing up just one word to me, no matter what I try to think of differently to describe it: coppery. It looks coppery, it smells coppery, and God help me, it tastes coppery. I just hope coppery is a word.

A golden beer with a 1 finger head. Aroma was peppery hops. The taste was the same as the aroma & was nothing special.

OK, I normally rate beers in a standard way...aroma, mouthfeel, flavor, finish and overall impression. I’m not doing it this time because I’m drinking this beer and reading the label... flavorful and hop-jacked? WTF? Don’t lie to me! This beer is weak, watery and has an aftertaste of corn and funk.

DasBierChef (1083) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 4, 2012
Pours a clear copper with thin white head and decent lacing. Aroma of malt, malt, and more malt. Taste is almost sickeningly sweet with no hoppy balance at all. Not impressed in the least.

UncleKorm (787) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Bottle poured a clear golden hue with minimal white head. Aroma of grass and mild malt. Taste of mild sweetness, peppery yeast, thin, watery, and a bit metallic. Not special.

Ckear dark amber pour w/ a small white head. Aroma is sweet fruit, grain. Flavor has bitter and sweet but not well-balanced. Fruit, grain, some not pleasant vegetable flavor. Drinkable but just barely so.
