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.

onceblind (8900) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Clear deep golden with a thin Rocky white head. Funky earhy biscuit with a full yeasty lageriness. Clean quaffable body like all other Shiners; but with lots of crisp cracker and bread crust lager tones. Its just a crisp lager without any corn notes or badness. But it also has no nuance. Clean and well made, but its still a blank canvas.

I admit I like the smell asks the appearance when I poured out out of the bottle... But the taste just wasnt there for me. The alcohol taste came through a bit too much and it left a after taste the reminded me of really cheap vodka... Try everything once but I wont be buying it again

LowBrau (133) - Tonawanda, New York, USA - APR 23, 2015
Medium gold color. Nice combination of medium sweetness and alcohol. Light bitterness and a touch of fragrance from the hops. Toffee aroma. Very enjoyable.

bottled - not that bad. Not much aroma. Pale golden color. Malt character, not much on the hop front but thats not really expected anyway. Very drinkable.

Old rating. Gold pour. Crisp malts, a little straw and some light hop. Nothing special.

badhack (550) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Clean, light lager with some hopping. Light body, straw and lighter malt flavors. Id drink this if I saw it on tap or buy a 6 pack for a bbq.

ordybill (1644) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Poured from 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- mild aroma of malt and caramel. Appearance- A nice dark golden color with a fairly large off-white head. Taste- Has a yeasty flavor with a hint of caramel and some hop added for good measure. Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Has a light and crisp finish. Overall- A slightly better than average beer, I would drink it again but I wouldnt go out of my way for it.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAR 7, 2015
The pour is a clear medium amber with a white frothy head. The aroma was somewhat mild with a wet cardboard adjunct odor, a mild hint of floral hops and a light touch of sweet malts. I find this to be a smooth crisp brew with a slight caramel malty taste and a decent hoppy finish. Definitely a well balanced Lager and would be a great brew for a nice spring day... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

foyle (416) - Wyoming, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Poured from 12 oz bottle into schooner glass. Appearance: a 2" sudsy off white head falls moderately with some decent lacing remaining. Color is a clear deep golden with moderate streaming carbonation. Aroma: fairly mild, just some light bread crust and a bit of sweet caramel. Mouthfeel: fairly light and crisp with a mild, easy finish. Flavor: toasted bread, some caramel and raisin, a decent hop bite in the finish and lingering in the swallow. Overall: very good but not outstanding. Somewhat reminds me of Shiner Oktoberfest but with less flavor.

Brandon1989 (620) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head that left quite a bit of lacing. The aroma is bready, cereal, malts, some hops. The taste is rather sweet malts, caramel, and toffee with only faint hops.
