Golden yellow color. Fruity aromas of corn muffin, dried peach, orange zest, and cream with a soft, spritzy, dry thin body and a seamless, fast corn flakes and lemongrass finish. Refreshingly light lager with a clean snappy finish.

Reduced Calorie Lager

Reduced calorie lagers, or light lagers, are pale straw to light gold in color and range in alcohol from 3.5-4.5%. These beers are not defined by flavor as much as their low calorie count. These beers are widely popular in the US and are now brewed throughout the world. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Samuel Adams Light, Heineken Premium Light and Amstel Light.
