UPDATED: APR 16, 2004 I know this is an american standard which is in the same ring as pabst and bud, but when I was in texas and they had nothing else to drink, this was the best of the bunch, Typical flavors of an american standard but it stood out somehow. I don't know why, but I sorta liked it. Spiesy (2337) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2004

Pale golden colour, with a well maintain cap of white fizz. This stuff doesn’t even both with the chemical bittering, just serves up fizzy something. The things you’ll do for a new state/territory rating, only to be double-crossed and find out the stupid thing is brewed in Milwaukee. What a jip!!
Claims to be the beer of the Nation of Texas. In that case, y'all go ahead and secede and keep this. Pale gold. Nose isn't bad, bit of grassiness, definite citric character, adjuncts aren't too overpowering. Flavor is not a good thing, overly sweet, plenty skunky, and has a strange fizziness to it that makes me think they mixed club soda in with crappy beer. Not a good thing. 21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 1, 2004

Can you say yee haw!? Can you get out yer chili and uncap a couple of these, pardner? A little sweet, a little watery, just a hint o hops and a jigger o malt. We're bull ridin', tonight, dear.

The plain Jane of beers. Too bad a whole state has to claim it as their own. I think its a bit sweet but overall its just week. Terminus (3716) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 16, 2004
can-a bar on 6th street in Austin, TX-another one of those beers you have to try while in texas, so i did! This stuff is crap all the way around! I didn't drink much this night and this thing gave me a huge headache due to all the adjuncts in it! Silphium (3198) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - FEB 7, 2004
I am amused by the excitement this beer creates- I tried it at a fairly new BBQ restaurant in town and the waiters excitedly awaited approval of this bland lager. Meanwhile, they had GL Dortmunder Gold on tap. Lone Star isn't offensive; it is merely a watery macrobrew. Slightly sweet flavor (yeah, corn) with metallic notes. If somebody hands me another I'll drink it, but Lone Star fails to distinguish itself from the rest of the macro crowd. whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2004
Golden-yellow color and medium, fleeting head.
Weak dusty, vegetal aroma. Bland, corny, and thin. A few sips, followed by some water suffice to cleanse the palate. An icon in Texas, worth tasting as a novelty. Otherwise, definitely nothing to recommend here. At least the label is cool. rabuc (143) - carlisle, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2004
i went to texas and thus had to try this beer. must drink very cold. texas must have a better beer with the number 1 on the label!
