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.

This beer was only a slight step ahead of say a bud light but not to bad for a light beer.
