- Lone Star Beer uses the finest hops from the Pacific Northwest with hearty grains from the Central and Northern Plains. Malted barley and corn extract combine to provide Lone Star with nature's finest ingredients for brewing. Lone Star's ingredients give this beer its full natural flavor. The choicest hops lend complexity and aroma to this beer, and its proprietary mashing regimen creates the perfect balance of alcohol, body, and character.

Aroma is - well, crisp and malty, but lacking complexity. At least it smells like a beer, albeit an industrial brew. It pours a typical clear straw yellow, not much head. Flavor is - meh, a little malty, that’s all. I’ve had "lite" beers with more flavor. Texture is fizzy but rather watery. I had to try it, and at least now I know.

The slogan reads The National Beer of Texas on the can. Poured into a pint glass. Pours the color of straw with an abundant, quickly dissipating white head. Plenty of bubbles can be seen streaming from the bottom of the glass. The smell is the typical adjunct lager smell. There is barley, corn, and faint grassy hops.
The taste follows the nose. The barley and corn are detectable and typical of the adjunct lager taste. The hop flavor is mild. The body is light with plentiful carbonation. The finish is crisp and dry. The drinkability is very good. Overall, this is a good beer. It's unoffensive and accomplishes what it sets out to do.

I'm writing this from Austin, Texas so you know I've had plenty of these over the years. It is what it is...a class of beer that doesn't merit long paragraphs to describe it.

The only thing I'm going to say about Lone Star beer is that you have to serve it cold and then it's actually quite satisfying.

A shot of whiskey with a 16oz ice cold Lone Star chaser works for me.

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.

Appearance: Pretty sudsy...almost soapy. Ok head and good carbonation. Straw yellow.

Smell: Roasted malt mixed with corn? Not terrible.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Not bad. Not good. More of the same typical American beer water. Mouthfeel is quite crisp though and very refreshing on a hot day in Santa Fe, NM.

Overall Drinkability: Goes perfectly well with BBQ on a hot day, which is how I had it in Santa Fe.
