Poured from a 12 oz bottle into nonic pint glass.
A - Kosmos pours somewhere between orange and light copper, completely transparent. Half inch of white head rises with decent retention and some lacing.
S - Simple bready sweetness with grain providing the background. Some metallic and slightly grassy aromas peek in from the hops. Fairly standard; nothing offensive but nothing that stands out either.
T - Slightly deeper than the nose would suggest. A lot of that adjunct-like blanket grain flavor early on, with a touch of honey like sweetness. Light toasted notes mingle with the entrance of the hops mid to late palate. Bits of grass and light earthy tones appear in moderate amounts. Mild bitterness in the finish with a somewhat unpleasant metallic flavor in the aftertaste that lingers for quite a while.
M - Light and refreshing, medium high carbonation, and thankfully out of the watery range.
D - Kosmos is an alright beer, but I doubt it'll wow anyone. Besides being a suitable alternative to BMC stuff, there's nothing outstanding here. A slightly above average beer in a below average style.

A: Light copper golden color. Good carbonation and foam retention. Whitefish foam. Nice looking.
S: Wheat, grain, barley, light malt.
T: Smooth, cool, juicy and mellow. A little grain and sunflower seed. Bright and lively; Slightly sweet and slightly tangy on the finish. Also a longer floral finish of rose water and maybe a little nectarine and peach. Oh so slight on the fruit though.
M: Smooth and mellow. Thin and crisp feeling makes it really refreshing. Almost no dryness, for better or worse.
O: Better than I expected. Nice refreshing German beer. Would be a great hot weather beer or a camping beer.
