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.

jimmie65 (330) - Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2012
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.

TXBadger (2788) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2017
Pours a clear bright yellow golden color with white head. Cereal grains, grass, and some nice malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes crisp and clean, very well done.

ccex (1277) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2017
12 oz. bottle pours a clear dark golden color with quickly vanishing white head and no lacing. Not much aroma, but some grains, corn, and perhaps butterscotch. Taste is slightly bitter but not hoppy. Body is light with average carbonation. At least I got only two of these in a sampler 12-pack for $10. You get what you pay for.

Andrew196 (1809) - Katy, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2017
Pours a rich gold, effervescent head. Aroma of grain, corn, honey, cardboard. All out of whack on the tongue, sweet corn, a strange bitterness, pepper, pennies, homebrew finish. Not good guys.

Cimbasso (886) - - FEB 9, 2017
Sampled from a bottle. A dark gold lager with a white head. Caramel and malt dominate the flavour with some mild hop taste towards the end. Not much bitterness. A rather bland and sweet lager.

Deep gold with a small white head. The aroma is slightly malty, with a bit of caramel. The flavor has some caramel as well, shifting to a earthy, herbal, bitterness.

Cajun (531) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle - Pours clear gold, FLAT. Part of variety sixer that has also been flat. May be old. Nose of buttered toast, with hay, and hint of fruit. Similar flavors, but with a shot of skunk. It has to be this bottle. Some hops aftertaste.

MrBeerFanatic (1051) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 19, 2016
Pours a light golden with a light head. Aromas of grain, slight herbal and light caramel. Flavors of grain and slight grass. Bland but not horrible for a lager.
