2.3/5 rDev -6.9%
Clear with a golden to straw yellow colour and a creamy looking, part bubbly white head that has good retention.
Basic to say the least and almost water like in smell. There is some light corn, a touch of grassy hops and some other adjuncts but anything stronger would have been a positive.
Very light with some sweetness and grassy hops but both are faint and isolated. Some other non-de script adjuncts are present.
Smooth but very thin in body with a watery feel to it. There is some sweetness that lingers but not much else worth commenting on.
Very basic, not very adventurous pale lager that I could easily have done without. It was lacking in both smell and taste and did little to indicate it wasn’t just a bottle of water I was drinking.

3/5 rDev +21.5%
Appearance - This poured a pretty and hazy pure yellow in color with a decent white head.
Smell - The grain is very powerful at the nose yet there's an appealing softness to it that's actually quite inviting. That light Pabst sweetness is in here as well and reminds me of rock candy.
Taste - The grain stays soft at the taste and blends well with the beer's sweetness. The flavors work well together and manage to keep this beer non-offensive.
Mouthfeel - This light-bodied lager has a mild but firm carbonation with just the slightest hint of dryness at the finish.
Drinkability - This is not bad at all for a semi-macro beer. There's nothing offensive in here, which is more than I can say for most AALs, and everything is in balance. Nice to finally get this here in SoCal.

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.

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.

Very pale in color. Pours with a dry white head which exits quickly. A very dry beer. Hop taste is strong, with a pronounced aftertaste. Faint hints of burnt corn. This is not bad for a cheap beer. Serve ice cold if possible.

3.8/5 rDev +53.8%
Appearance: medium head, medium carbonation, clear, light yellow
Smell: lime, wheat, malt
Taste: lime, wheat, malt
Mouthfeel: smooth but crisp--due to carbonation which is highly present,sweet
Drinkability: For the style I think this is highly drinkable--certainly better that Coors/ Miller..There is a bit of sweetness which made this stand out. On my own scale, I would give this a D+/C-. It is however, an above average adjunct lager. I could certainly drink six or more if I was in a macro drinking mood.

Just terrible. Smells old, tastes flat. Pours a darker yellow with a short, bubbly head. Aroma of corn and dirt, not earth, dirt. Taste is sour and bitter, very metallic, and old. I only knew one guy that loved this beer. He was from Corsicana, TX. I later found out this was a dry town. Possibly to keep this beer away?

Straw colored with a lumpy white head of tight bubbles. Aroma is corny, a little sweet. Mouthfeel is a bit watery, but bubbles tingle the tongue. Flavor is also corny, a little biscuity, but not so far as to say malty (probably because there is little or no malt). Difficult to tell if there is a fine hop presence, or if it's just the tingle of the carbonation. Finishes pretty clean. Not too complex, but not offensive.

Yellow beer, thin, fizzy. Nothing beneficial or positive to say about the appearance. Smell was industrially sweet, nothing special or existant in terms of hops or malt.
Taste, relatively easy to drink, off putting bitterness, grittiness to the beer, which takes away from its alleged drinkability, or thirst quenching properties. Almost entirely corn based I would guess.
At some point, these retro beers re-emergence jumps the shark. Maybe it was long ago.
Why is Lone Star made in Illinois these days?

Clear yellow, a little darker than a Budweiser. Ivory Dish Detergent head that doesn't last longer than a 15 second TV commercial. An odd aroma that's similar to old socks. The foot wear theme continues in the malt impression, other than that, corn syrup. Typical macro hops, an afterthought. Drink this stuff cold and thirsty, its unpleasant at warmer temperatures.
