Holy crap. Handed this by a douchebag friend of a friend. Palate was smoother and richer than expected, but, as the teeny boppers say, "OMG! THIS SUCKS!" Really can’t understand why you’d ship this out of Texas. As local cheap fodder, OK, but for a state that loves Christ.....for the love of Christ, keep it in Texas.

abemorsten (3265) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2015
355 ml boks. Gave fra Lars, som driver en restaurant med samme navn. Sprudlende lys gyllen kropp med et lavt hvitt skumdekke. Muntrer sukkerlake med et surt hint. Søtt og vassen smak med våt papp. Tynt. Noe bittert på slutten og hint av malt.

There are lot of regional adjunct lagers that are beloved in their area of origin, but nowhere else since they’re all essentially the same. Pittsburgh has Iron City, Baltimore has National Bohemian and Texas has Lone Star Beer. This really doesn’t have any qualities (or demerits) that none of the other beers of its ilk don’t have. It’s a standard, familiar and rather boring lager.

I poured a 12oz bottle into a mug. It had a best before date of 9/1/15 and cost $1.39 ($0.12 per ounce).

Appearance: Pure golden color with near crystal clarity and carbonation visible. Pours to a small, white, soapy head which mostly evaporates and leaves no lacing.

Smell: Initially quite skunky like a green bottle import, but eventually becomes that of generic adjunct lager. Some cereal grain sweetness, but no distinctive traits. No noticeable flaws, either.

Taste: Not too many beers aside from Budweiser use rice as an adjunct, though I think that’s what Lone Star uses as it’s noticeably sweet up front but doesn’t have the raw corn flavor often found in beers and malt liquors of this type. No discernible hop presence in the form of flavor or bitterness. A bit of a metallic tang on the finish and a slight vegetable character in the aftertaste. Mostly, this palette is inoffensive and unexciting once you get used to it. That’s not intended to be a compliment, though.

Drinkability: You want a fizzy yellow lager? That’s what you get with this: though not so much “fizzy” as it is genuinely crisp and controlled rather than spastic. The mouthfeel is paper thin, though the texture is clean as is the aftertaste (many brews like this tend to be oily). At 4.65% ABV, Lone Star Beer is arguable sessionable; though I wouldn’t particularly recommend it considering how mild the palette is.

Score: 4/10

Draft in a plastic cup while waiting in line at La Barbecue, Austin, TX. Aroma is sweet grain and mild corn. What this beer has going for it is it has no flaws. It is brewed the way a lager should be. Clean and smooth corn and grain. No skunky off putting notes. Really not to bad.

This is Pabst’s offering of a light beer for Texas. That’s exactly what it tastes like.

팝스트 브루어리-론스& 페일라거 4.65%ABV 텍사스의 상징적인 맥주 론스타. 주경계선을 넘자마자 어느 바든 가장 첫줄에 올라와있는 대중적인 텍산 맥주. 몰티한 맛이 잘 살아있는 페일라거. 오스틴, 텍사스 하지만 알고보니 팝스트 소속이고 밀러쿠어스 공장에서 브루잉된다는 반전. 그러나 여전히 팝스트, 밀러, 쿠어스 보단 나은 맥주. https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

foyle (324) - Wyoming, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pilsner glass. Appearance: pours a thick foamy white head that drops slowly with some mild lacing. Color is pale straw with abundant streaming carbonation. Aroma: mild aroma of corn and a bit of lightly toasted malt. Mouthfeel: light, crisp with a refreshing dry finish. Flavor: corn sweetness dominates with the barley sweetness taking a back seat and just a hint of hop presence. Overall: pedestrian but not offensive. A good lawnmower beer.

The_Osprey (3443) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2015
355ml bottle BB Sep 2015, 4.6%, my bottle says it’s produced in Fort Worth, and also says ’Brewed in Texas’. Ratebeer says it’s brewed in California. Either way, it’s pale yellow, clear, sparkling, small foamy white head. Aroma is fluffy toy, pencil sharpenings. Body is medium, foamy, tingly carbonation. Taste is thin, tangy, very light biscuity malt, alcohol is detectable despite the low ABV. Sodawater. A beer this bland can’t be offensive.

Typical American light lager. Light on everything, especially flavor. Not worth having except ice cold in a heat wave.

Cimbasso (359) - - FEB 12, 2015
Sampled from a bottle. This is a pale yellow colour with a white head. Plenty of carbonation. Not much aroma, but the taste has some malt flavour and a distinct flavour of syrup. Only very lightly bitter, with a slight taste of grassy hops. Best drunk cold. Quite refreshing, but not very characterful.

For some reason I enjoy this more than Coors or bud. Tastes about the same but with a bit more ’America to it. Still a shit beer, but with more spirit. Smells like hay, grass grains. Clear, golden pour. Tastes like grains, lightly malty a bit metallic.
