    Decent light beer, manages to go light and refreshing but not too watery.

    Employee was great!



Light beer is a beer (usually, but not always, a pale lager) that has lower calories and alcohol than typical beer. The drop in calories often means light beers have a "lighter" taste as well, but they can be great session beers if you're planning to have more than one.
Some beer snobs will tell you light beers taste like beer-flavored water. It is true that by cutting the calories, you're significantly reducing (or eliminating) things like hops or yeast that bring flavor.
Most light beers have a significantly low alcohol content, with some going as low as 1-2% ABV, but typically 3% - 4%. Compare this with most comparable "regular" beers, which fall in the range of 4% - 5% ABV.
