COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It took 2 years of brewing, tasting and testing to come up with the final recipe for Sam Adams Light. We focused on brewing a flavorful, high quality beer with a light-bodied taste and fewer calories. Sam Adams Light is a unique beer, it’s not a lighter version of our Boston Lager. Sam Adams Light is the only light beer that uses no adjuncts and a traditional brewing process to ensure a balance of flavor and light-bodied taste. No other domestic light beer uses only the four classic ingredients of beer: pure water, lager yeast, Noble hops and barley malt. The quality ingredients that make up Sam Adams Light include two-row malt and some of the most expensive hops in the world, Spalt Spalter Noble hops. At 128 calories, Sam Adams Light features a clean finish and no aftertaste.

Clearly my most favorite light beer out there. Enjoy everything about this light beer as all others (other than Yuengling Light Lager) cannot even come close. The next closest besides Yuengling Light Lager would be Amstel Light. Only complaint would be the price ($30 vs. $20 for Yuengling Light Lager).

This is one of my favorite beers, and I don’t mean just among light beers. Unlike most light beers this one doesn’t taste like piss water. It goes down smooth but still has great taste. Highly recommended.

Sam Adams is a little dark and heavy for my liking, but its Light counterpart is reliable for pretty much any situation.

Sam Adams in general is probably my favorite beer. The Light is very smooth and easy to drink. It tastes like a beer is supposed to taste and is not watered down like some other light beers.

This beer has a surprising dark taste for a labeled "light" beer. One of the best light beers I have tasted. Sam Adams has a good thing going.

I actually really do like this for a "light" beer. I was a little disappointed that they didn’t serve it on the brewery tour, but I still like it a lot.
