First of all I'm not a "light" drinker. I like a lot of beer flavor and Second, the SA Lights came in this years Winter Classics 12-pack so I tried them.

Nice amber color with a quick lived head and a thin lace. The aroma is sweet with malt. The flavor is light, smooth, malty sweet, crisp, and grainy with a touch of hops and caramel flavor. The body is light not watery. Overall, this is a good light beer.
