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.”

Very light light yellow pour with almost non existent head. Aroma is spiced with slight hints of malt. Flavor is sweet, slight caramel, and a weak finish. Different but not necessarily that great.

Beer pours light copper color with a quickly dissipating head. Grainy aroma with a hint of floral hops. Taste is sweet. Needs more bitterness for balance. Blah.

rating due to psychic hypnosis via Buffalo alien. This is a mess. A hopped up and unbalance lager. Ugh. As a hop grower I am insulted at the waste of decent hops in this concoction of abject commercialism. Bleah.

Metalchopz (3384) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2014
Purchased in Vermont, part of their tester mixed-pack. Pours a clean rich golden colour, with a little amber in it. Frothy warm cap with good retention and some thick foamy lace. Typical macro lager smell with sweet malt, alcohol, fake hops and corn. Even more corn in the taste with some mild adjuncts. Fake hops. Not the worst lager out there. Nice label, brew looks good, but nothing more than this.

Rated based on notes taken 11 Nov 2012 -- Not impressed with this beer. Just a step above the crappy American Lagers.

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.

Bottle in San Antonio. Reserve? What does the normal kosmos taste like? Metallic and sour notes throughout that ruined it for me. There was some redeeming malt in there but it was buried deep.

fidelis83 (2437) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Pours copper tinted amber with a 2 finger chunky beige head that has good retention. Aroma is caramel, grass, citrus, metal, straw, and a little mineral. Flavor is citrus, grass, butterscotch, cardboard, metal, caramel and a little forest like earthiness. Finish is crisp mineral notes, some citrus and herbal hops and metal. Palate is light-medium bodied with a dry feel throughout and a sharp, but not too sharp carbonation. Not bad stuff really, theres alot wrong with it but somehow it pulls together to be pretty passable overall.
