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.”

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2013 12oz bottle in Shiner variety 6-pack (kind of a Shiner marathon night). Poured into lager glass amber-ish golden color, very thin white head. Aroma of biscuit, sweet malt and maybe the slightest of hops. Taste brings out some grassy hops. Light and smooth mouthfeel. Easy drinking.

Bottle in a mixed six pack. Pour has a dark golden color and a thin cap of white head that fell right off. Aroma has grains, dull aged hops, and a light malted base. Mouth feel is light and there is average carbonation. Flavor has a lightly malted core, mild bitterness, and grains.

This is a real heavy ale. Too malty for my liking. Really strong aftertaste of malt. Pours a dark brown in color. Smells really malty ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle 12/9/10 (Whole Foods-Lamar)-Pours a slightly hazy amber with a small head. Aroma of malt. Taste of malt and caramel. This medium bodied brew is not bad but just another beer from Shiner.

cheap (5792) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2009
Clean smell, pale lager look with a slightly scummy top. Somewhat strong malty taste. Turns a little fruity at times. Goes down fairly easy. Has that typical shiner personality. Decent finsh, could have more manners.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Pours a golden amber color with thin head. Aroma is sweet malts, but very weak. Flavor is sweet, but with a slightly skunky taste and a bit of metallic. Finish is thin and fizzy. Not one of Shiner’s finer moments.
