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.

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.

Standard light beer. Not much taste.

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.
