what an absolute insult to Kosmos, but seeing as the Spoetzl family let this get out to the public, fuck 'em.. Please Lord, if you are there, please strike down Spoetzl brewery into dust, and forever blank the worlds mind of this crap they call beer, from Bock to Leight to this garbage.. words aren't enough, pure shit .. . pours a tawny tan, with almost no head after a minute .. . ever smelled a metal malt extract can that expired in 1994, then you know what this smells off.. . does have a decent mouth, as in it doesn't linger too long, but horribly muddled with an odd metallic backbone bitterness, and a wrong expired maple syrup flavour, maybe some moldy hops ..maybe...

.. pretty much offensive to all my senses...

Poured a beautiful, rich golden body with a bit of an orange tint and a thin foam cap of head. For the style it looked fantastic and very inviting. Scents of bready and sweet malt with a medium-low level of floral and herbal hop aromas. A simple, appealing, classic American Lager aroma profile. Very nice. Flavor begins with medium-low sweetness with a nice honey-like character that carries throughout the sip. This is quickly joined by a nice medium-low level of floral hop flavors with medium-low bitterness. In the middle there is a nice mingling of floral and herbal hop flavors mingling with a low level of malt sweetness and slight grainy flavors. Finish is medium-dry with strong floral and herbal hop notes imparting a pleasant medium-low bitterness. Aftertaste is floral and herbal hops and grainy malt. A good, simple, clean, crisp, modestly hopped flavor profile that is refreshing and a good example of an American Lager. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with a slightly drying feel and an unfortunately low level of carbonation. It feels fairly good, but more carbonation would be nice. Overall this is a fairly good American Lager. It is pleasantly dry and floral in taste, with a nice floral and malty aroma. The mouthfeel could use a little work, but otherwise this is a solid example of an American classic.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 1.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

A: The beer poured a nice medium amber, clear with no sediment.

S: This beer has a very pleasant smell, lightness and earthy

T: completely jacked up with hops, distastefully so. I couldn't taste any notes over the insane amount of hops.

O: I did not enjoy this beer, Way too much hops that takes over any flavour profile that may be present, distracting. Will not be purchasing again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Tan, with molasses hints. Clear.

Smell: Sweet malty notes, but not overpowering.

Taste: This is a hoppy lager, but if I hadn't known that I would have sworn that it was a brown ale with a bit of zest.

Mouthfeel: A bit thin, but the end rounds out nicely.

Overall: Enjoyable and very drinkable.
