This one is nasty. I think I got the last bottle in Ohio. Then they stopped making this crap. It's pretty light beer-ish with an attempt to spice things up. REally doesn't work all that well. Ends up being fizzy, watery and thin. Oh so thin.

What is all this fuss about light beers? Why does a quality brewer like BBC feel they need to offer a light alternative? If you're worried about your girlish figure just drink water!

Its Sam Adams with a lighter nose and palate. Pretty tasty, a bit fizzy but as far as light beers go, good stuff.

Other than the bad name, I don't know why BBC gave up on this in favour of the present Light,it's been years since I had this beer,but I recall it being a great escape from 'light' beer without the lack of flavour of a craft brew.

A full-bodied light beer. (I know that's not right somehow) Malty, sweetish taste, clear head which quickly dissapates. A favorite in years past for making a different style of Black and Tans with (The Black being Mackeson's)

Quite a nice light beer. The bottle label could use some work, but in the glass this beer has a beautiful pale amber color. The head retention was week, only lasting a few minutes. The initial taste is that of most light beers (you know it is a light beer), that is quickly followed by a nutty maltiness. The beer finishes quite dry with a residual bitterness thats lasts for a while. I think most 'light' beer drinkers may find the bitterness a bit much, but hey, thats their problem.

I think it tasted like every other generic light beer. Good, but nothing special.

Is much better then any Budwiser, but I am disapointed that Boston Beer Company has gone to that level of dull American beers.

I had this one under the name 'Lightship'. Without doubts my favourite light beer.
