2.17/5  rDev -11.8%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

Presentation: 12 oz twist brown long neck bottle, the word “Texas” is on the bottle six times. No freshness date.

Appearance: Crystal clear yellowish straw colour, thin white lace struggles to stick around.

Smell: Clean and grainy aroma, not much else at all in the nose.

Taste: Tremendously crisp with a lightened down smoothness, light bodied. First of is a mildly cloying sweet maltiness is thrown on to the palate, what little hop there are have a hard time keeping it in balance. Even though it is sweet the malt profile is weak so that shows the hops are just there to balance. Graininess is throughout and lingers far into the finish.

Notes: Bland lager, same as any other macro brew in the US. No need to recommend this beer being that the big three in the US do a fine job of making beer just like this and selling it for less.

I remember drinking this when I was trying to get a 25oz mug at Bukowski's in Boston. We had to drink 99 beers. This was one of them. Everytime I went in there I would procrastinate, dreading the day that I would have to drink it. My thoughts were confirmed when I did. Hard to swallow and ultra-bland.

Out of all the readily available adjucts out there, I find this one to be the least offensive to the senses. I'm rating this on style, not personal preference. But actually, I wouldn't turn one down if offered. If I go to Lonestar steakhouse for dinner, that's usually what I order. Even though I'm a beer snob, I still have a soft spot for an easy drinking american lager. This one fits the bill perfectly. Way underrated. And millions of Texans can't be wrong.
