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.

hopdog (8952) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2004
On tap at Rams Head Tavern. Poured a light yellow with no head. Watery and flat tasting. Nothing really to say other than it is a light beer (if it didn’t come with the sampler, I wouldn’t have ordered it).

jgb9348 (4750) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 8, 2004
Crystal clear golden colour with a darker golden tint and a nice frothy white head. Tons of small bubbles run from the bottom nicely. Seriously, not a bad looking beer at all! Aroma of just about nothing; Some caster sugar, some pale malt and little else. No hops to speak of either. Light-bodied; Super sweet fake taste of caster sugar, aspartame and saccharin. No good qualities at all in the taste. Very watery and almost still in the mouth. Aftertaste shows the bad fake sugars and some slight vegetable tastes. Overall, not a good beer at all, but that was to be expected! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased at Chevy Chase Wine & Liquors in Washington, D.C. on 08-September-2004.
