Kosmos Reserve okay. I like the bottle it looks exceptional but i don't know what color the beer is. Twist top and off allright.
Hoppy, flowery, taste good and good for you no doubt.
goes down easy i cojuld drink a case. I like this beer about as much as the Smokehaus its one of the best from Shiner.

Bought as part of the shiner "family reunion" six pack.

Nice bready malt aroma. Piurs a bright clear orange with a short white head and lots of lingering bubbles.

Flavor is very good, one of the best of an often mediocre style. Very balanced between malt sweetness and fresh crispness. Some hops but not too much. Just a little less than an american pale ale.

Medium mouthfeel.

I recommend this one.

I bought a single bottle of this at Woodman's in Rockford, IL for about $1.30 in Winter 2010.

Another good find from Shiner. This Kosmos Reserve pours a golden amber color with good scent of wheat and malts. It has a very bold flavor of herbs but is surprisingly mellow. A very surprising taste for a pale lager.

Appearance: Lacy, tan, foamy head. Pure Gold.

Smell: Hops. Lots of hops for this category. Good malt smell, but overridden by hops. Floral, sweet, roasted.

Taste: Smooth, starting out like a fairly strong golden lager. Very well balanced. Ends with a flourish of hops with biscuity bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, comfortable.

Drinkability: I would venture to say this is one of the best beers you can buy in the 8-dollar-six-pack range. Unfortunately, it is only available with other Shiner beers in the Family Reunion six or twelve-packs.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance, beer poured a light amber color, clear and clean look. White head that dissipated quickly however lace around the glass did not.

smell, was sweet and mild, slighly malty with some sweet hops

taste, very flavorful, alot of malt sweetness, very little bitterness, I notice some spices that wake up the senses...

mouthfeel, very smooth, lightly syrupy finish, medium carbonation..

overall, a very nice pale lager, well done by the folks at Shiner.
