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.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear gold with minimal head. Aroma of some grains and a little grassy hops. Taste is about the same. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, not too bad. This is probably one of my favorite shiner beers.

BVery (9901) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 6, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Very drinkable lager, but a lager nontheless. Pours an attractive crystal clear rich gold with a small white head. Aroma is cereal grains. Thinner palate with plenty of carbonation, and the taste is a simple yet somewhat pleasant grain and cereal bit. Doesnt suck.

Spookgolds (241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Bottle from a variety pack. Pours clear golden, with a quickly disappearing head. Nothing worth noting. Reminds me of a basic lager, not great. Not really even good. Wont have again.

AdamChandler (4756) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 13, 2012
A - Poured a quarter-finger head. Look of the brew is completely lager. Not much going on. Head is gone after about 10 seconds. S - Some honey, bockiness, wheat and some bread smells are coming through. None are too strong though. T - More honey and bock tastes are coming through. The malt itself is deep but the aftertaste is like a Miller High Life. Its a very disappointing taste but starts out okay. M - Lots of carbonation while swishing but not much to speak of in general O - Id take this beer fishing. ITs not great but I feel it would be better if served in a can.

BillWyce (1045) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2012
From notes: Pours clear golden amber with a thin, 1-finger white head. Aroma is earthy, with perhaps a touch of citrus. Body is medium-to-thin. Very mild flavors. Yeasaty, with a slight citrusy note. nothing special.

decaturstevo (5940) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Gold pour with foamy white head and lace. Aroma reminds me of flat wheat even though I know it cant be. A flavor I associate with corn followed by a bit of semi sweet malt and a wee tad of bitter. Light bodied and foamy. Not very much.,

drjay44 (3520) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thin white head, with some lacing, over a clear gold (SRM 5) body....nose is light cereal, hints of hop spice....taste is cereal, touch of biscuit, finishing with a light bitterness....mouth feel light, carbonation high. This is a light beer with minimal aroma, flavor and complexity and is quite typical of this brewery. The best that can be said is that it did not smell or taste bad. BJCP 4/3/9/4/4

astrofrk (341) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 4, 2012
Dark amber. Fast, white head. Aroma: Grains, caramel. Flavor: Grains, malt, caramel, hops and some spices I cannot identify. Unusual to the finish and difficult to rate. Going by the ratings, this is a beer you will either like or hate and I have never seen opinions differ so much. I for one do not like grainy lagers but I like this one so I guess I have to "Drink my words!"

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.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2011
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.
