Can, gifted me by a generous soul... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a pale golden with perfect clarity and a quick to rise steady to fall head that leaves very little lacing on the glass.

The aroma is very much like corn and rice... there is some alcohol, some mild maltiness.... a little bit of leafy hops... generally not one of the more inviting pale lagers aromatically at least, but its not horribly offensive either.

The flavor is decently clean, its got some corn... and even some corn flakes. The beer tends towards the sweeter side of this category but does a fine enough job of providing a little zippy hoppiness and a brisk bitterness for a touch of balance. The beer has some fruity notes... maybe even a touch of apple. I think the higher than average bitterness per style is what makes this one charming, and it is charming.

Taste like a combination of expired milk, wet naps, and over grown celery stalk.

There are lot of regional adjunct lagers that are beloved in their area of origin, but nowhere else since theyre all essentially the same. Pittsburgh has Iron City, Baltimore has National Bohemian and Texas has Lone Star Beer. This really doesnt have any qualities (or demerits) that none of the other beers of its ilk dont have. Its 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 thats what Lone Star uses as its noticeably sweet up front but doesnt 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. Thats not intended to be a compliment, though.

Drinkability: You want a fizzy yellow lager? Thats 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 wouldnt 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.

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 (416) - 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.
