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.

slowrunner77 (10750) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2014
"Too much generic grainy aroma and cereal taste to it, without a whole lot else going on. Solidly in the not bad for a lager category, but not really good either. Got in a mix pack, wont get again..."
