Shiner Kosmos Reserve

Shiner beers come from the Spoetzel Brewery in Shiner, Texas (pop. 2,070). This 5.0% ABV all malt lager that is then hopjacked is named after Kosmos Spoetzel, the founder of the brewery.

The beer pours a dark golden to light and gleaming amber in color. There is a tall head of thick, ragged off-white foam that is short-lived head. The aroma is bright and grassy, malty grain, lagerish, a bit of straw, with a fruity note. The taste follows the aromas adding in a bit more toasted malt. It is a nicely malty lager with a hit of hops on the end. The finish is dry and grassy, lightly to moderately bitter. It is an easy drinking and crisply refreshing beer. Not a lot to say about this, it is simply a tasty lager.
