The beer was served cold in a pint glass.

Appearance: The beer pours a fizzy yellow coloration. The head is a thin white coloration.

Smell / Taste: This is a very bland and boring macro lager. The aroma is grainy corn and the flavor is an annoyingly sweet corn flavor. No off aromas or flavors noted.

Mouthfeel / Drinkability: The beer has a thin fizzy body. This beer is crisp and clean and boring. This is BMC by another name.

Forget the standard format for reviews, this one sucks too much to necessitate such professionalism. I love the Great State of Texas. That is why I find this beer to be so utterly offensive.

As a beer, this is a macro-lager. There is nothing worth reporting on this other than that. If you are faced with the choice of this or a BMC, flip a coin because it does not matter.

OK, first this is supposed to be the state beer of Texas but it's made in California? My first sip and I seriously thought this was diluted with water. Very weak. Take your average beer and then mix it 50/50 with water and there you have it: Lone Star beer. I could not even finish 1/4 of the bottle and not wanting the waitress to get offended, I poured most of it on my 12 dozen finished oyster shells and leftover bread to look like I at least drank most of it. Would I drink this if there was nothing else? Sure, but this stuff is not really good at all.

This is just another light beer. It's decent, I suppose, but it didn't surprise me and certainly didn't impress me in any area. I just feel like they could do more with it.

A: Looks decent enough. Pale gold with great clarity and very active carbonation from small bubbles. Dense white head starts out well, then settles to a thin film. Leaves occasional wisps of lace.

S: Not a promising beginning. Steamed cabbage, apples and a bit of metal make up the nose. This isn't going to be a good experience is it?

T: Relatively tasteless cold. As it warms, things go downhill fast. A faint straw flavor starts out weak and watery, but a steamed corn and cabbage flavor quickly makes an appearance. Bitterness arrives in the form of metallic green apples. Finishes tart and dry, with more straw and cabbage. A lingering wet cardboard flavor adds an extra level of unwanted complexity. The warmer it got, the more I winced.

M: Light body has a harsh level of carbonation.

D: Ouch. This was one of only three Texas beers I could find near Bush Airport in Houston. The hotel bar had it on tap for $6.00. ($6.00?!? For Lone Star? Are these people nuts?) The convenience store across the street; however, had a bunch of single 16oz cans for a much more realistic price, so I grabbed one. Not my wisest investment. Even the special "Limited Edition" can didn't help.
