Not quite sure how to review this beer -- as a regular ol' beer, or as the light beer I bought it as? Well, here goes with my impressions and I'll see how I can wrap it up:
A -- Clear, light copper color with a nicely thick, white head.
S -- Light malts with a hint of spicy hops.
T -- Light bready malts at the start with a grainy follow up and vague noble hops with a dry finish.
M -- Soft and smooth mouthfeel.
D -- Dangerous drinkability, 119 calories (based on the latest info at the Sam Adams web site) could add up with this beer, especially at 4%.
I picked up this brew for 2 reasons, the first being the usual reason you might consider a light beer, the second being that it was recommended by someone whose beer opinion I respect. What a great all around beer -- "light" or not. The flavor and drinkability of the Sam Light make this a great session beer. Back in 2002 I see that Todd says this is a beer he wouldn't normally buy, but I'm pretty impressed with it all around and may have just found a new regular for the fridge.
