Golden yellow color. Aromas of circus peanuts, lemon cornbread muffin, and taffy with a silky, bright, effervescent, dryish light body and a smooth, short melon and toast finish. A reserved reduced calorie lager with decent body for the style.

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.
