Golden yellow color. Aromas of dinner rolls, savory herbs, cheddar, and lemon with a slightly chewy, spritzy, dryish light body and an even, brisk parchment, asparagus, dough, and black tea finish. A light but toothsome reduced calorie lager that satisfies.

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.
