Brilliant golden yellow color. Toasty aromas and flavors of buttered toast and dried green pear with a supple, crisp, finely carbonated, dry medium body and an even, stimulating, medium-length finish displaying shades of arugula, hint of lemon rind, and saltine finish. A very nice, clean, malt-forward light lager that is a pleasure to drink.

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.
