BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Pabst Brewing Company
California, United States
pabstbrewingco.com

Style: Light Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 3.85%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
- Lone Star Light mimics its full-bodied counterpart with an award winning premium light taste. This beer retains the complimentary ratio of barley, cereal grains, and hops of its parent brand, but offers this taste profile at a reduced alcohol by volume percentage. For maximum flavor and zest, this beer retains the level of hopping and carbonation found in the full-calorie version. Heck, we like our light beers big and bold, just like the state of Texas.
- ABV% 3.85
- Calories 111

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle poured into tulip
(Feb. 12, 2018 best-by printed on bottle neck)

L: clear yellow, SRM 2-3 tops and so clear it looks like air in the glass, yellow-tinged air; pushes up quickly-dissipating head of white foam that eats at itself like a gose head; bubbles everywhere, and they push up a constant fluffy collar and most of a skin; fun to watch; not stick or lace

S: stale grain, sour grain, yeast everywhere ... loads and loads of dusty yeast; as it warms, hints of cracker malt show up, subtle and lightly sweet

T: grain, stale grain, big corn note midswallow through the finish and it's not creamed corn but real live corn; lots of yeast; over time it gets some of that American adjunct lager housepaint note many of them have ... hard to describe ... might the yeast mixing with other notes

F: that lightweight/heavy carbonation combination us soda drinkers grew to love; it's over carbed of course, but I still like it a lot ... helps cleanse the palate

O: the grain flavor is much, much more prominent than I expected, and while the nose isn't worthy of worldwide acclaim, every now and again you can pick up a pinch of barley malt sweetness; it's a bit watery and lightly medicinal at times, but for the genre and 3.85% ABV, it's fantastic. I don't expect much from an American light lager, and this one easily surpasses those expectations.

These are cheap and easy to drink. Mostly because it's water and can hydrate you better than Gatorade on a hot summer day. I believe you can only purchase the light version of this beer in Texas.

Pretty much the same as the regular version, only taste is lighter and seemed watered down; cereal grains but not much else. Light bodied. Not much too it.
