Light yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of soft white bread, corn silk, lemon spritz, and toasty malt with a supple, vibrant, effervescent, dry light body and a smooth, snappy finish that shows suggestions of amaranth and salt. The crisp and balanced, easy-drinking light lager that quenches.

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.
