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!

Another national beer of texas; i buy in HEB stores, they named this beer "the official beer of HEB", this is a little better than its sister, malt an hops are presentin its smell, low fermentation, taste is equilibrated and wide, a little yeast, aromatic aroma, mouthfeel is over the average. try with most of mexican food, direct from the can or in a pilsner glass; 90% recommended.

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?

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.

The much-ballyhooed “National beer of Texas” now has a “light” version. I could say that it needs to be reviewed in the proper context, that this is not craft beer, nor does it portend to be.

But its “light” beer and while regular Lone Star is an inexpensive, generic macro lager meant to be drunk in the Texas heat, at a BBQ/Pachanga, chili cook-off, tubing on the Guadalupe, etc. This is further watering down a macro lager.

If it’s free and/or there’s nothing else available, buckle up.

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.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

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.

Actually followed up a Lone Star with this (Hey, when in Rome..). While the aroma was actually a little skunkier than the Original, the mouthfeel/finish was a little better, so the two of these evened out.

That being said, been there, tried these..done.
