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

Appearance: Gold, ok head.

Smell: Bready, hint of grass.

Taste: Caramel, toffee note. Fruitiness in the background.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, moderate weight.

Last Spoetzl bottle in the mix pack, Kosmos is a pretty decent beer. Kind of reminds me of an English ale, but no tea bitterness, just caramel and fruit flavors.

Serving type: bottle

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a copper color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is malty, some caramel. Taster is malts, some hops, a bit of caramel ,good flavor. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer, complex for this style.

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

A decent if somewhat forgettable lager. Clear coppery gold color; decent white head that settles slowly. Patchy lacing remains. Mild aroma; some bready malt and a touch of somewhat fruity hops; light floral notes; grainy, cereal, pretty bland.

Flavor is also pretty nondescript. Certainly not bad but this is one of those beers that’s forgotten as soon as the bottle is done, I think. Cereal grains, light caramel malt, some moderate honey sweetness that dries up in the finish, subtle floral and grassy hop notes with restrained bitterness.

Medium-light body; crisp carbonation. Fairly clean drinking and moderately refreshing.
