Had this on draft at the buckhorn saloon in San Antonio

Pours very light golden & effervescent. Zero head retention or lacing

S: Slight grainy & sweet amlt scents

T: Sweet malt & some grainyness. A little iron & honey follows. Finishes crisp & a little grainy

MF: Medium bodied & slightly over cabronated, go figure

Drinks pretty easy, I could 2-3 on a warm day, way better than BMC, a pleasant suprise; went well with my chopped beef bbq sandwich & jalapeno (473 characters)

Lets not kid anybody. This isn't very good beer. It used to be back in the early 70's but a lot of things have changed since then. When I can find it, and that's not very often, I drink it because of the nostalgia effect. I put on some Jerry Jeff , close my eyes and imagine myself 40 years younger driving my 56 Chevy Sedan Delivery around Texas listening to AM radio and going into Austin on occasion to hear some good music at the Armadillo. For that alone its worth the price and the hangover. (497 characters)

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. (781 characters)

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. (302 characters)

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. (860 characters)

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. (225 characters)

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

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. (512 characters)

Say what you want. It's exactly what it claims. A decent honest adjunct beer. I drink lonestar far more than i would like to admit. It's cheap, tasty when cold, and gets the job done in the killer Texas sun. Next to a well crafted beer of just about any style, yes, it falls short. But I almost religiously take a 6er of tall boys with me anytime I play disc golf, fish, hunt, or do anything outside. Its been my go to cheap beer for years and you will be hard pressed to convince me otherwise. (495 characters)

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? (320 characters)

I didn't think it was awful. A decent beer sitting out on patio in Texas. (74 characters)

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. (421 characters)
