Take any weak BMC and put a Texas-proud label on it and there you go - Lone Star Beer. Poured a 3" white soap suds head which faded fast. Standard clear pale straw yellow color. Almost no smell or taste but I suppose you could say it has a very weak grassiness to it. About as watery as they come. Everything is big in Texas, except this beer.

The label states, "Pure Texas Beer" and "Don't Mess With Texas". If "Texas" is as weak as this "beer", I can kick "Texas"'s butt with hands tied!
No head, dull pale "color". Dry vegetal aroma. Nothing. Tainted water. There is nothing remotely resembling beer here! Why would anyone want to drink this? It doesn't even try to be beer! Finish? None! Body? None! Hops, malt? Nope! Texture, there is none!
Given to me as a sample by a beer salesman. I don't quite trust him anymore.
Worst Beer. EVER!

Probably the grossest beer we've ever had. Wrote a review for this a while back, however it looks like it got deleted (probably because we compared the smell to a fresh urinal cake). Luckily, we still have our notes. So, here's a 'nicer' review.

Appearance: Yellow and fizzy like most cheap macros. Doesn't look appetizing, however I suppose it could look worse... maybe.

Smell: Extremely astringent. Smells like grainy malts, corn, and straight-up skunkiness. You know when you slip in a bathroom and fall into a urinal....nevermind.

Taste: Taste is similar to most American macros, except more pungent. Sour and bitter in all the bad ways. Aftertaste is stale cereal.

Mouthfeel: Watery and highly carbonated.

Drinkability: Only two bottles from the entire six pack were finished, and both were consumed by non-wisemen. We even tried using it for beerpong (as a replacement for Natty Light) and couldn't do it. Avoid this beer at all costs.

Uses: I'd probably sell this beer to minors to teach them that underage drinking is bad

You;ve got to be kidding!!!!!!!!!! I was in Austin, Texas a few years ago and a man walked up the the bar, the bartender asked if he wanted a beer. He said, "No, I'll have a Lone Star."

Drank one of these and walked home right after finishing. Almost threw up before I got to my place (two blocks away).

Appearance - No head. White lace. Dead pale straw body with no visible carbonation.

Smell - No smell other than a very slight corn scent.

Taste - No off flavors. Then again, no real flavors to speak of.

Mouthfeel - Water.

Overall Drinkability - This beer has no redeeming qualities other than the fact that it tastes like water, and it is conceivable that someone might want to get drunk while drinking water, so this would be the solution to that need.
