I grew up with this stuff around. I had an older brother who had some friends that were big Lone Star drinkers. Since I was underage and clueless, I drank this stuff too. This is the first time I have really reviewed it since then, so let's go back in time...shall we?
Appearance: Pours a very clear slightly reddish golden color with a thick and tight 1/4" head of white bubbles. There are many bubbles rising to maintain the head and give it an almost Champagne look. A minute or so later there are still quite a few bubbles rising. The
Aroma: It actually has some aroma to it. There is some malty sweetness here that is almost reminiscent of a Helles. There is a slight metallic hint to it. A very slight hop aroma along with a dry graininess that you get as you go deeper into the beer.
Taste: The flavor is malt driven also. It definitely has a dry and attenuated kick to it, but there isn't really enough hops in it to balance the sweetness as it finishes. It leaves your throat feeling like it just took a big swig of water, but there is some sweetness there just to make it stick a bit on the way down.
Opinion: Well, I can honestly say that I was pleasantly surprised with this beer. It actually has some flavor and body to it without being all adjuncts. I believe that there is still a bit rice in here to lighten up the body, but I don't think that it is approaching the 30-40% that you get with AB's products. There is just far too little hops here to even make it a Helles. I was disappointed in the finish.
**Note** As I am supposed to, I am reviewing this beer against its style. That is why it is scoring so high because this is probably one of the better macro brews.

Served in a can. Consumed from said can.
I was being grilled by a couple of company men, and I decided to at least get a beer run out of it. Finally, the sixer of tall boys was placed in front of me. These brews are best enjoyed in dreams that happen in a locked box inside of your head.
Lone Star may also be enjoyed alongside one Reginald Ledoux, on your porch in Carcosa, or in pursuit of the King in Yellow.
Be warned - at the end of every sixer, there's a monster.
