Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a WIlli Becher glass. Best before 25 June 2018.
4.25/1.75/3.25/4/2.75
A: Three fingers of vigorous head with plentiful carbonation. Clear amber gold.
S: Skunky and metallic and generally unpleasant.
T/M: Soft, fizzy, malty-biscuity. Hops, if at all, are earthy-herbal-spicy and vague. Pretty generic lager. At least it's not too sweet.
O: Not great, not terrible, beery beer unlikely to offend beyond its nose.

Beautiful color...very rich. Nice, subtle smell with a smooth taste & feel. First time having this--will definitely purchase it again when I can.

Wonderful gold caramel color. Nice thick white foamy head. Smooth taste. Clean refreshing finish. It is a reserve, not brewed very often.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle poured into pilsener
(Sept. 3, 2017 born-on date printed on bottom of bottle)

L: clear gold topped by creamy, fluffy offwhite head of foam over an inch tall that is sticky up top and is coating the wall of the glass; not a ton of lacing on the way down, but it keeps a thick collar of offwhite foam

S: sour grain, yeast, dust, metal; as it warms can get real fruity sweet, peach and apricot with a little buttery sweet biscuit underneath

T: apricot, fruitcake, metal; toasted apricot, apricot kolache with cinnamon ... the cinnamon is something earthy, either yeast coming back and biting or the remnants of some old dirt hops

F: light midweight with enough carbonation to scrape paint off your car; the carbonation scrubs the front of your tongue then fills out the swallow

O: if the metallic flavor note didn't exist, this beer would be fantastic; it's loaded with good light-malt flavor and sweetness and a nice little bite from the yeast; overall

This beer is fairly sweet. The label claims dry hopping but I'm not sensing it. I'm getting a good bit of corn. It isn't a bad beer, but it certainly isn't shiner's best.

Very good beer, aromatic in the best way for a pale lager. I only wish it had more alcohol. With a bit of booziness, it could be a premium pickup; perhaps even tack on the name Kosmos Reserve to a barrel-aged line. Must I think of everything?

Pours a clear bright yellow golden color with white head. Cereal grains, grass, and some nice malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes crisp and clean, very well done.
