Big thanks to swalden28 for sharing this gem.

Pours a very pale clear yellow with a white head. The aroma is strong corn and wheat. The flavor is more corn and more wheat. Very adjunct tasting, not appetizing at all. High carbonation and a thin mouthfeel.

Thanks to woodychandler for the trade.Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some notes of corn. Taste is also of corn, a good bit of sweetness to it. Feels light in the mouth and has good drinkability. Overall, as far as light beers go, this one is not so bad.

Appearance: Paler than pale yellow, crystal-clear and fizzy with a white head that recedes rapidly. In a bizarre twist, it looks a lot like champagne.

Aroma: Thin, sweet hints of "malt"with no real hops to speak of, just some crisp apple.

Taste: The body is composed of a thin, sweet, rather corny (no pun intended) twang; the same crap you're used to from this style. Hardly any bitterness whatsoever, just more of the apple.

Mouthfeel: Thin, watery, and fizzy. Simple as that.

Drinkability: Think of the drinkability of water, then imagine one notch less drinkable than that. The only thing holding you back is the bland taste.

Verdict: Essential indistinguishable from the national brands, Texas certainly deserves a better "National beer" than this. Luckily, the Lone Star State is home to a whole slate of brilliant breweries, including Saint Arnold, Independence, Spoetzl (makers of Shiner beers), & Rahr. At least Lone Star has the awesome puzzles...

Lone Star Light has a medium, white head, a clear, bubbly, golden appearance, and thin lacing left behind. The interesting aroma is initially of a strong grain husk character, but this fades to a pungent, sweet, grainy, beer smell, which is more pronounced than what one typically encounters in light lagers. The flavor is also stronger and tastier than what is typical for this style- sweet grain, some corn, barley, and a touch of balancing hops all work together for a nice presentation. Mouthfeel is mostly light, and Lone Star Light finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and enjoyable. This is a mellow, good beer. Light beer enthusiasts should love it!

This is a darn good light beer. It compares favorably with Coors Light, imo. It is very similar to Natural Light. Has a surprisingly clean, fresh taste. This is the light beer I've been drinking lately- it is significantly cheaper than Coor Light, and you know why pay a lot for a light beer?

Pours a perfectly clear pale yellow color with a continuously bubble fed fluffy white head. The foam actually sticks around nicely, 20+ seconds or so, not too shabby.

Nose is of faint maltiness and carbonated mineral water. Not much else, certainly no hops or specialty malts. At least is smells clean and non-skunkified.

I reviewed Lone Star regular the other day and did not think anything could be more flavorless. I was wrong. This beer takes the prize for "Most Closely Related to Water" award. To be fair, there are no off-flavors present and the high carbonation level lends some refreshing qualities. At 3.9% is it possible to catch a buzz? I liked the regular Lone Star offering better, kinda like preferring mosquitoes to roaches.

Appearance: Clear light golden color with a half-inch off-white head that fades to nothingness in a couple of minutes. Lively streams of effervescent carbonation rise to the surface, but cannot maintain any semblance of a head; the lacing is poor.

Aroma: Rather sweet with notes of cooked corn and faint washed out hops.

Taste: Begins with an aggressive surge of carbonation, followed by lightly sweet malt. Finishes with tired slightly bitter hops and a faint note of alcohol.

Mouth feel: Rather thin and watery.

Drinkability: Refreshing and easy to drink, rather like slugging down Gatorade on a hot Texas summer afternoon. There is no substance or style here, to be sure, Lone Star Light is better than many other light macros.

Presentation: Packaged in a twelve-ounce aluminum can, served in a standard tap glass.

Well, the national beer of Texas isn't good, but the price adds good points. The taste is smooth, with apples and fizzy; very refreshing; its ok to drink with snacks; the look is awful with a distilled yellow color; in the smell are essences of corn; very little body; i would drink it again only as a gift.

I'm just doing the CAN-CAN because I CAN, said the CANdy Man.

I am really excited to be closing in on CAN # 200! There was a time when 150 was in doubt, then once that milestone was breached, 200 became the next goal. It has slowed down considerably since the start of the CANQuest, but leads and requests for trades are continuing, plus if I were to lay hands on everything on my Wants, I would be close to 300!

A good pour resulted in two fingers' worth of bone-white head exploding with CO2 bubbles. I CANnot say much for the color, however - it was a pale yellow with NE-quality clarity but really pale compared to its Un-Light brother. Nose was mildly lager-sweet, actually not too bad. Mouthfeel was quite thin with a fizzy effervescence on the tongue, accompanying that same mild sweetness that I noted on the nose. Finish was semi-dry, lacking in any kind of appreciable flavor. Bland, really, and watery. I would not reach for it over regular Lone Star, but on a hot day? Perhaps.

Under 3 bucks for a twelve pack at Ft. Bliss (El Paso), TX. A good cheap beer. Slightly refreshing in the Texas heat. Better than than a macro light, but leaves something to be desired.

Poured an interesting straw color with carbonation bubbles.No smell noticed. Taste of roasted corn and minimal hops. Sweetness from malts. Finishes crisp. Impressed by lack of beer in the can taste.
