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.

Has a little bit of malt flavor and tiny bit of smell. Overall, I would say that it is better than a sharp stick in the eye, but not by much. Beats out every standard domestic light that I have had, but so does toilet water. Would drink it for free, but I will not ever pay for it again.

Drank it out of the bottle, just like that annoying douche-bag in the commercials, so I cannot comment on its appearance. The taste was quite good, certainly one of the better light beers ever sampled. Not revolutionary like the hyperbole suggests, but good enough. Maltier and fuller flavored than other light beers. Very smooth. It would be a great summertime drinker.

Bottle. If I wanted a light beer I would drink this. It has some malt flavors not typically found in American Light beers.

Well...not much goin here taste wise. Golden honey hue. Head dissipates quickly. Nose is slightly malty, but hard to decipher. Very smooth, I spose, this is a very drinkable brew, but thats about it. I put off tasting this for a long time, I found one in my fridge and decided to give it a go...I wish I didnt.

Okay, not bad for a light beer at all. Not at all offensive lik emost of the style. It was clean and crisp blah blah.....still a boring, watery beer that worsened as it warmed.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2003 Light amber, not much carbonation with a wonderful caramel aroma, this is an excellent light beer. I think I like Leinies Amber Light a little better, but this one will do nicely.
