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.

Tmoney99 (14196) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 24, 2011
Bottle. Poured a clear amber color with a large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sweet malt, small hop and lager aroma. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Worth having once.

blipp (8881) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 23, 2011
Bottle. Pours gold with a fluffy white head. Sweet and a bit grainy aroma. The flavor is relatively clean with a light sweetness and a hint of grain. Not bad.

TheBeerBaron (261) - Florida, USA - APR 17, 2011
Copper colored with a small white head that to its credit laces nicely down the glass, the beer is not visibly carbonated. A floral aroma with orange and vanilla with spice. The taste is mostly a cereal wheat with sweet mandarin and honey flavors. Its an ale that lacks a notable hops taste but ha enough to counteract the sweet citrus beginning. The palate is a tad thick and bloating for such a sweet ale. In summation I am glad they "reserve" this beer and release more of the preferable Shiner Bock to us consumers.

brigg (662) - Washington DC, USA - APR 15, 2011
(bottle) A bubbling clear orange body with a big off-white head. Pale caramel malt and moderate hop aroma, grain, fruit notes (apple, orange) and light grass. Flavor, like the body, is thin. Up front there is some caramel malt as well as hops and some spice, but it quickly fades to a mostly tasteless(watery), dry finish.

RasterMaster (258) - , Oklahoma, USA - APR 15, 2011
Bottle from "Family Reunion" six pack.Golden blonde pour into thin white foamy head that quickly dissipates into melting lacing and a pool of swirling foam as carbonated bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass. Aroma of malty grain and yeasty biscuit. Initial flavor of malty straw that slowly fades into a grassy finish.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 27, 2011
bottle from the "family" sixer, pours light gold with a medium white head. Aroma is pale grain and corn. Flavor is crisp pale malts, some corn and a nice finish of peppery hops. Seems like a nice light pils to me.

jeremytoni (3040) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2011
From a bottle poured a straw color with a fair amount of head. Grassy malty flavor with a quick finish.

Hangover (1129) - oxford, Georgia, USA - MAR 11, 2011
OK, I normally rate beers in a standard way...aroma, mouthfeel, flavor, finish and overall impression. Im not doing it this time because Im drinking this beer and reading the label... flavorful and hop-jacked? WTF? Dont lie to me! This beer is weak, watery and has an aftertaste of corn and funk.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2011
12oz bottle. Golden amber with a very small amount of fizzy white head. The use of the phrase "hop-jacked" in the brewers description makes me wonder if anyone at Shiner has ever really had a hoppy beer. Half asses as most of their brews - lots of corn. Thin and watery.

suprchunk (2986) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Pours a honey amber with a hefty white head. Carbonation continues to flow upwards the entire time, keeping the head up top. Not much in the way of aroma. Surprising given the statement about hops being used in this one. Smells a little like watered down corn. Again, a little like watered down corn. I would like to say there is some malty tastes contributing to the color, but I cant. Weird aftertaste. Almost like a powdery feeling. A bit of sourness lingers on the sides of the mouth and tongue. Eh, you could pound them down. But why would you? Its not very good and the overcarbonation gets annoying to look at.
