For those wanting to quench their thirst but do it with a little less calories – Sands Light has the same characteristics as Sands. A little less full-bodied beer and less alcohol, Sands Light is still classic gold in color with a pleasant crisp and clean taste.

In the summer of 2009 — the Bahamian Brewery launched, and is now distributing in the Bahamas, its third brew — SANDS LIGHT — a light taste in a great beer.

The newest truly Bahamian beer has just hit the Bahamas beer market and is already getting rave reviews for staying true to its original taste while keeping the calories light.

This was a VERY light beer. Much like an MG64. very very clear....no hops, some acetaldehyde ..not much else. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was regular Sands w/ water added. it was cold and cheap

Pours a crystal clear pale golden color. A very small white head, perhaps half a finger. No retention, very light lacing.

Aroma is malty and almost sweet. Cracker. Melon or tropical fruit. Strange, but inviting.

Light, malty, mildly sweet and lightly bitter.

Mouthfeel is dry, crisp. Light bodied. Softly carbonated, but sharp aftertaste. Something about it, makes it hard to drink.

Overall, it’s not that good. I wouldn’t recommend it, and I wouldn’t buy it again.

Pretty much the same as Kalik light - nothing usually tastes the same like Mcdonald’s joints. Golden pour from liquor store in New Providence.

My wife got this for me in Freeport, Bahamas. Pours a yellow/gold/lime colour with a small white head. Aroma of lemon, grass and light hop. Medium+ sweetness, light bitterness, slight sour edge. Light body, thin, quite high carbonation (all as expected). Finish is gassy, with lingering citrus/sour. OK for what it is.

It’s a light beer in the Bahamas, so what did you expect? Refreshing enough if it’s cold enough. Pretty corny and watery.

Can - small foamy head, very pale yellow color, typical light lager aroma and taste - nothing special, but sure did hit the spot hanging out on the beach in the Bahamas! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at the brewery. Very clear, pale yellow, large white head. Slightly sweet and corny. Crisp and refreshing tho. For what it is, it isn’t that bad.

More or less the same as the regular Sands, maybe slightly thinner in body. That’s all I can pick out.

See Sands regular beer rating... not much difference with this one actually, other than the fact that it was a light beer and I figured it would be watery and unpleasant. However had good body and again a liberal happiness that added some flavor to this. Pretty good.

On vacation and from memory. I was extremely drunk and very hot. I spilled some on my poor pale ale Scottish skin and it felt great. Tasted refreshing at the time.
