Like all light beers, this is fairly easy to rip on, but that has been done, ad nauseum, so instead, I'll offer up some alternative thoughts. If it weren't for this beer, how many people would drink beer at all? Think about it. From young woman to old men, you see every age group and demographic drinking this. Sure, they advertise like crazy, which I am sure lends itself to the masses, but it does have mass appeal. It is what it is...a very, very, very mild tasting beer. Not much in terms of hops, malt or balance, but something to chug while standing on an asphalt pavement after a softball game on a 90-degree day (water is good in this situation too) Eventually, people who start to appreciate beer move on from this to better beer. Not much different than Miller Lite, Coors Light, Busch Light, Michelob Light, or any other light. In its class, Amstel Light is better as is Sam Adams Light.
