    Pros: Great Tasting Light Beer
    Cons: Price Point is Expensive & Much Lower Alcohol Content than Other Beers.

    Summary: Light beers are typically criticized by beer connoisseurs for their lack of flavor or taste, and rightfully so for having a watered down flavor. Nevertheless, people that are looking for lower calories, fewer carbohydrates, and unfortunately less ... read more

    Pros: Taste, Price, Availability, Lack of Calories/Carbohydrates
    Cons: After-Taste

    Summary: Introduction Amstel Light seemed to be one of those beers that you just "Pass by" when in the liquor store. Sure, I had noticed it, and considered giving it a try, but I still seemed to drift away to other Lagers. One day, I was infuriated ... read more

    Pros: Best beer under 'light!'
    Cons: Expensive and seems to be getting scarce in some areas.

    Summary: When it comes to light beers my personal opinion is that something is lacking. Maybe it's the alcohol or sugars and fats, but whatever it is most lights seem to carry a beat but tend to go flat towards the last note. So if you 'chug' them they have a ... read more

    Pros: Goes well with Thai food.
    Cons: Probably isn't as enjoyable by itself.

    Summary: I've seen the ads for years--the vaunting of Amstel Light as the high-quality light beer, and was never tempted to try. Light beer didn't really appeal--I don't drink that much, and might as well get as much oomph! out of it as possible. But, last ... read more

    Pros: Less carbs than a can of soda! And more fun to drink!
    Cons: Somewhat expensive, hard to find on draft.

    Summary: I am a self-admitted beer snob. For one, I despise most domestic beers. They have no taste, no body, and no reason for me to drink them -- especially the light varieties. That's why I head for the imports. I love a full-bodied, tasty beer with flavor. ... read more
