Contract-brewed for Pabst Brewing (San Antonio).

Born and brewed in Texas, Lone Star helps keep the culture alive by supporting today’s Texas musicians, outdoorsmen and everybody’s friend, the Armadillo. When it comes to great beer for life and the way we live it down here, Lone Star really is PURE. TEXAN. BEER.

Lone Star is a very decent example of what American beer should be. Very refreshing, hoppy (maybe a little hint of citrus), and perfectly clear golden. It is a bit sweeter than most, especially on the finish, but overall very clean. There is nothing to rave about, but nothing at all to hate.

From tap. Pale yellow. Medium white top what disappears quickly. Metallic hop aroma. Watery, cooking oil, corn flavors. Oili mouthfeel.

I remember back in the 1970s everyone in having a can of Lone Star in their hand, and I remember downing it by the pitcher at Frank X. Tolbert’s Chili place in Dallas (no longer there). Frank X. Tolbert’s chili was so hot that a person didn’t care about all the subtleties of a beer, it just had to be cold.

Headbanger (3051) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2014
12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of corn and malt. Taste of sweetness. This light bodied brew fits right in in Texas.

Bue en bouteille 355 ml. Bière de soif texane. On n'est donc pas dans la finesse et la complexité...

This is not a good beer. Pure Texan junk is more appropriate for this. I would not recommend this to anyone.

3/28/2014. 12 oz. bottle. pale yellow with a white head. Corn and malt aromas. Not a lot in terms of flavors. Thin and diluted beer that is best left in the bottle.

This is thoroughly bland pale lager. The aroma is thin and all cereal. The appearance is so pale its nearly white and the head is sudsy. The taste is bland and unremarkable, the palate light but finishing clean. It’s unremarkable but refreshing.

Bif (1310) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a straw color with fair head and no real lacing. Aroma is pretty bland with a bit of malt sweetness. Taste is pretty weak with a bit of malty sweetness. Has a very mild bitterness. Light body and pretty bland. When in Texas........

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein hell goldgelbes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch ganz leicht malzig, getreidig. Geschmack sehr wässrig, minimal malzig, getreidig, ganz leicht herb.

Purchased at the flagship Whole Foods in Austin, TX; enjoyed while watching tv after a great sunny day and eating 7 tacos. It's better than PBR, and that's a good thing. It's very similar, but a bit more flavorful. True Detective product placement enabled my decision to purchase this.
