Being from texas, maybe I'm a little biased, but I think this is the best beer you can buy. It's much better than bud, coors, miller ect and yet it's still cheaper. A great beer overall and well worth the drive to texas! jasonbeer (2) - Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2010 does not count
My first review is of the beer I’ve had the most.
Texas is hot in summer. Porters ’n stouts won’t cut it, even in the a/c. Laking, rivering, camping, softballing, lawn mowing, and even just kickin’ it with the buds, Lone Star is the perfect beer for all of that.
It’s best out of the bottle, but I usually have it for $1-$2 in a can or on tap.
I was just in the Pacific Northwest, and they have PBR and Rainier and Olympia and Weinhards and stuff. Decent cheap beer at best. When I raved about Star, I was asked, ’what makes it better?’
Difficult to answer.
There’s just a ’I’ve Had It, I Get It’ factor that Lone Star drinkers understand, but I couldn’t put it in words for the uninitiated. Maybe it was all the hops I was drinking at the time.
Easy to drink, still relatively cheap, and pure Texas. The puzzle caps on the bottles and T-Shirt contests with the can tabs make being a Lone Star drinker fun! My softball team got jerseys from last year’s T-Shirt contest. We drink a lot of Lone Star.
Anyway, you’re not going to go ape about the malt, hops, nose, appearance, palate, etc. because it is a cheap lager. The character of this beer is bigger than all that. Like Texas, I suppose.
I enjoy many, many beers, but dammit, I love Lone Star.
