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.”

Another good find from Shiner. This Kosmos Reserve pours a golden amber color with good scent of wheat and malts. It has a very bold flavor of herbs but is surprisingly mellow. A very surprising taste for a pale lager.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours a clear gold with a fizzy white head. Not much in the way of head retention or lacing.

Aroma is of stale grain and cooked vegetables. Maybe a little hint of lemon.

Flavor is honestly pretty weak. Some light graininess along with a slight vegetable taste. There is a distinct bitterness throughout but not as much malty flavor as I would have liked.

I feel like this beer just misses the mark. It is not terrible by any means but is simply boring.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2011 Brilliantly clear golden with a white head. Subtle grassy and earthy hop aroma. Palate is a little thin, with mostly cereal grain malt notes. Looks good, smells good, taste and palate a little lacking.

bottle. Pours orange tined gold with frothy white head. Aroma is lemon, grass, soft skunk. Balanced flavor with lemon, hay, some grassy hops on the finish, which evolve into a watery skunk like flavor. Medium carbonation, medium to light bodied, but not resembling a light beer or anything. As it warms a little bit of a soapiness. Not the worst lager - although its uninteresting and there are some weird flavors going on in here none of them are outright bad, it is drinkable to be sure.

LetsGoState (912) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Appearance is a light yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is on the weak side. Taste is nothing special - just a plain lager. Overall just an average beer.

3.3
drdisque (886) - Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2010
pours clear with medium foamy head. Mild floral hop aroma. Very fruity hoppy initial bite that subsides into cereal malty nothingness which slides into the finish. A lot of good ideas not perfectly constructed.

2.8
icehawk (876) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle. Clean amber pour with foamy white head. Aroma is very minimal, maybe white bread. Taste up front isn’t bad, a bit of caramel that quickly dissipates into a watery finish. Not much character, but serviceable lawnmower beer.

ok, this is not the best beer in the world, but the style is nice. it is a great session beer; this reminds me I should put in the session lager
