COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our German-style light lager has all the flavor and character of a fine crafted beer, without all of the calories. Fordham Light is bottom-fermented, making it a lager beer. It is a light-bodied beer with a clean aroma. Fordham Light has a clean finish with little to no hop bitterness and is brewed with 100% malted barley. Most low calorie lagers are produced by simply adding water to regular beer until they become a low calorie beer. This dilution can be quite unsavory when one considers the adjunct brewed (e.g., corn or rice), flavorless beer they start with. Fordham Light is brewed with the same high quality ingredients and procedures that we use in all of our beers. We purposely brew Fordham Light to be a low calorie beer. This is why Fordham Light has a "real beer" flavor and a "real beer" body.

Clear gold. Nose a bit nutty with some adjuncts. Bit toasty and a few hops. Not crappy.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Pours pale yellow, with aroma of slight hops and malt. Tastes very smooth and crisp, with some hops and citrus at the finish. Not bad at all as far as light beers go.

Not bad at all for a light beer. It had a slight hoppy character and some maltiness. I'll give it some credit; it beats macro swill by a long shot.

I recently visited the Rams Head Tavern and tried this beer as part of a sampler. Certainly no character to this beer...come to think of it, it tasted just like a Bud.

Not good at all, even for a light beer, fizzy, yellow appearance, very thin, very watery, no hop profile at all, very little malt as well, seemed to be just water & yeast
