- 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.

From a can best by 4/10/23. Clear golden color with an inch of white fluffy head. Smells like straw. Light body. Tastes of sweet corn and straw. Should be rated higher, this is a perfectly fine example of the style. Clean lager with some adjunct notes, crushable if you want to make it a session beer.

First of all, the picture of the bottle needs updated.

This is not some great IPA, or Stout, or craft beer. This is good ol' Lone Star Light. Its great on hot summer day mowing the grass or hanging at the river. Its a good light beer if you want to drink light after over doing it the night before.

I drink this when i go to concerts at the clubs here in South Texas. You can drink quite a bit and not get F'ed up.

Taste wise its much better than 95% of the Light beers out there. Starts a bit sweet, definite grain notes. Its not bitter, goes down smooth.

If you want a light, easy drinking beer i totally recommend LSL. But, im also biased because im from Texas.

A very nice lady gave this beer to me as part of a July 4 celebration, so I am in a good mood as I write this. The beer is what it is. You have to give it light and refreshing, and it tastes pretty good for a light lager. I have had worse. Happy 4th!

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear straw color with a one finger head of fizzy white foam. The head fades superfast leaving just a trace of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is super light with just a little bit of caramel and malt. Along with these smells comes a touch of paper and herb.
Taste – The taste begins with a light cracker taste matched by a little bit of caramel sweetness. As the taste advances some paper and a touch of herb come to the tongue all while the sweetness increases just a bit to leave one with a still dry, but light and crisp taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body is light and crisp with a carbonation level that is average. The carbonation should be higher for the style to make it more refreshing.
Overall - It is what it is. I would choose an alternative light lager over this if looking for an easy session.

Lone Star Light is just as musty and grainy as the OG Lone Star, with little of the character that makes it so distinctive. It’s just not something I’d drink again if I had a choice. And I do!

Out of can in austin Texas. Not as bad as I thought it'd be. Tastes like it's hydrating? Definitely cheap grains, maybe corn? Kinda thicker texture, a tiny bit metallic.

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; for the genre and at 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.
