I'd take a glass of cyanide koolaid before I'd drink most light/low cal beers.  I'd rather have one good dark beer than 6 nasty light beers.  Yell

Well, my list of 4 wasn't meant to be all inclusive.  Feel free to add some variety.  My buddy swears by Lydenkugels.

I know where you're coming from, and I agree that of all the light beers out there, Sam Adams Light is absolutely fantastic!  Not a fan of Amstel at all, but the Sam is a really, really good light beer (really, really good *beer*, for that matter).

But take away the caloric concerns, and it's Guinness, or Chimay ... or Westmalle Triple, when I can find it.

"Guinness is often thought of as a high calorie beer but the official word from Guinness is that it is less than 11 calories per ounce. A 12oz serving has 125 calories, 9.8 grams of carbs and it's alcoholic content is 4.2%. For comparison, 12 ounces of Budweiser is 150 calories and 11 grams carbs, 12 ounces of Heineken is 150 calories and 12.2 grams of carbs, 12 ounces of Corona Extra is 148 calories and 14.1 grams of carbs, and SURPRISE... a Sam Adams Light has 126 calories and 10.9 grams of carbs. Of course, I don't know anyone who only drinks 12 ounces of Guinness (or any beer for that matter) so your mileage will vary."

Any beer that is not mass produced with the word "Octoberfest" on the label! (and Guiness, Bass, Flying Fish, Harpoon...)

I like a nice stout or a brown ale.  I can't stand light beer.

Any Hefiweisen... It has carbs and protein. Plus it is served with fresh lemon. Anything served with fresh fruit is good for you right?
