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.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2020 Pours copper/amber with a frothy white head. Aroma of rich malt. Taste has sweet malty notes, hints of molasses, literal ghost of a hop note. Palate has lingering, light, toasted malt notes, fairly full-bodied. Reminiscent of a Czech pilsener.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2019 Thought I had reviewed this but somehow missed. Sampled a few years ago in a variety pack. Remembered it to be basically a lighter version of their Boston Lager. Little less body, less malt, thinner flavor...but still a decent brew, and one of the better light beers out there.

dnstone (5564) - Saarland, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2018
Pours an amber in color with soft white head. Malt forward aroma. Taste is toasted malty in that defined Sam way, with lager yeast character.

Bitterbill (2771) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 8, 2017
From Apr 2008 This pours a clear gold with a 1 finger head of foam. The smell is malty with some caramel and some grain.(corn) Not a bad nose for a light beer. It says 119 calories on the label. The taste is pretty malty with some caramel sweetness and a slight bitterness that shows up mostly in the finish. Good taster this light beer though I'm not a fancier of light beers in general.

Very similar drop to the Boston Lager (just lighter). Malty aroma, slightly dry start with a bitter middle and finish with a malty after taste. Would drink it again if I had to

solidfunk (14023) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 18, 2017
Light rust and some bumper - almost like the aroma of a Volkswagen beetle from the 70s. Maroon pour. Bitter finish with astringent aftertaste. Bottle at Smithsonian movoe premier.

crossovert (16685) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2016
355ml bottle. Consumed various times. This bottle is form work and I think they might have retired this one, they won’t sell it to us for catering purposes any more. Its a crappy light beer.

Claim they spent 2 years. Probably need to spend 2 more. Like a poor cousin to the Boston Lager - weak flavour, weak body. Only redeeming quality is the cleaner finish.

4.6
mortsbrews (10) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2016
One of the nicest light beers I’ve had. Not sure where the hate comes from. Pours clean amber colour, frothy head. Gentle aroma and appropriate malt presence.
