Better than any other light I have tried, but still would not be confused with a "regular" Sam Adams. Looks nice in a glass, and gives a sweet, slightly caramel flavor.

First off, this is not a typical light beer. compared to sam adams, it is light, but it is still heavier than most other beers. expensive for a light, but definatly a quality beer that i will buy again

How disappointing ... the excellent amber color hinted of something special among lights. Instead, I’m greeted with a watery feel. There’s a good hint of hop, but no precious malt at all. Like sucking on a rag.

This is a decent light beer. It is not a light beer in the traditional sense of the word, though. It is hoppy and flavorful. It has a decent texture and head. It’s the uber-light beer. It is still significantly lighter than normal sam adams offerings. It’s like a watered down version of the Boston Lager, so it is a bit thin and watery by that comparison. But, to it’s ilk, it’s much improved.

Doesn’t taste like a light beer but it is.If you like less calories but not compromise the taste, definitely the beer to go...

Surprising amber color, malty nose, thin, slightly sweet, light on flavor, inoffensive. Better than an American Standard.

a nice thick,frothy head, musty nose, and great hop and malt flavor for a light beer and no after-taste-I LIKE IT! I LIKE IT!

I couldn’t drink it. Maybe a bad batch? Overwhelming metallic taste and aftertaste (from a bottle). Was really hoping for a winner in this category. No taste is better than bvad taste.

Not a great beer, but the best light beer I’ve ever had. Flavor wasnt too powerfull but it wasnt a bad flavor that you get with most lights. I could actually notice hops which was a surprise. Good palate. I had to give it a high overall impression because I was very surprised at how good this beer could be. I guess its because it has more calories than other lights that makes it have more flavor. Very refreshing and drinkable, with nothing bad about it except that it is a ’Light’ beer. Not worth the money however.
