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.

This is my least favorite of the Shiner brews Ive tried do far. Kinda disappointed in this beer. I like German beer, this is supposed to be German beer and if it is, its not a good one....

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.
