I figured that if anybody could make a good light beer then my favorite large brewer Sam Adams could. Boy was I drunk when I thought of that. It turns out that God himself couldn't make a tasty light beer, and I should know. It is of course the best light beer I've ever had, but I'd still order a mixed drink instead if this was the only thing available at the bar. I'll wrap this up by only saying nice things about the beer: It's thin, light body makes it easy to chug like water, but fizzier. Beats the living hell out of anything else with a "light" label on it. A great beer to use to turn your light beer drinking freinds over to the dark side. (Luke, I'm your father.) If you spill it it won't stain your shirt. If you've ever urinated then you'll know what to expect if you pour it out of the bottle, which would be a waste of a clean glass so don't.

I’ve gotta say, this ain’t half bad at all. Tastes just like a watered down Boston Lager, but that’s a good thing too. Very nice alternative for a weekday brew when you just want to wet the whistle without getting all torn up for next morning.

"for a light beer, one of the best, but that’s not really saying that much. None of the bad qualities that typically infiltrate the cheaper light beers, it’s just a thinner, less exciting version of their flagship beer."

Generically fine. I guess I prefer this to the BL,CL,MLs of the world, but really it is just about as nondescript as they get. Coppery appearance. Usual malty lager profile. Bready. Watery.

Transfer from BA review on 2-25-13 -
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours an amber color with a one finger white head. The head fades relatively fast to leave only a light amount of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of caramel and roasted malt mixed with lighter floral and citrus notes.
Taste – The taste starts out of caramel malt mixed with a corn like taste. As the taste advances some hints of hop flavor come to the tongue. The hop is of a more herbal and citrus in nature and in the end with the caramel flavor leave a mainly sweet kind of herbal like taste on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The beer is on the thinner side with respects to body with a carbonation level that is on the slightly standard side. Both make for a rather refreshing taste and are appropriate for the style.
Overall – A tastier version of a light beer with more hop and malt characteristic for the “light” lager style. While nothing to pine over it is rather refreshing.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2014 Very light and rather watery, but very clean and refreshing. As light beers go this is pretty good.

Tastes like a basic light lager. Better than most light beers, but still not very good.

355ml bottle from a gas station in Calais, ME. Coppery colour surprising for a light beer, looks like a thinner Boston Lager. Smells like a real lager more than a light, some light caramel malt. Actually tastes like beer. Tiny bit of bitterness on the finish. Thinnish body. Overall, a watered Boston Lager, so better than macro lights for sure.

Okay, so here’s a "light" beer that’s intended to be light and a unique tasting experience. It has a nice caramel body with minimal carbonation and a modest bit of light beige head. Aroma is murky hoppiness. Flavour is a decent malty affair with a watery finish. Certainly better than other "light" beers but not really particularily good.

It’s a light beer so my expectations are low. Still, it is better that the bud/miller/coors lights of the world. The flavor is generic enough that it’s challenging to describe.
