2.1/5  rDev -14.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Appearance: Red, white, and gold aluminum can.

Smell: Musty and beige. No interesting olfactory notes.

Taste: I finally figured out what that sweet Lone Star aftertaste reminded me of- those awful orange marshmallow "peanuts" we ate as kids. It also leaves an unpleasant stale residue in your mouth after a couple of cans.

Mouthfeel: Loose, watery, elevated CO2.

Overall: On the positive side, it is cheap and no worse than other mass produced beers. The excessive sweetness can amplify the hangover. If you're visiting in Texas go for a Shiner instead.

Serving type: can

Sampled tonight on 4/28/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner glass.

Pours a light/medium straw yellow in color with about a half of a finger white fizzy head that settles down quickly to just the sides of the glass. Some spotty lacing is seen. The aroma is of some basic grains. Nothing special really. The taste is about the same with a hint of sweet corn with a slight tart finish. Above average carbonation. Drinkable, but once again nothing really special.

Serving type: bottle
