This all-American classic beat out every other bottle with a smooth crispness. Fashion assistant Melissa summed it up perfectly: "It's what a beer should taste like."

First Runner-Up

Sam Adams Light (119 calories)

We loved the nutty, complex flavor. Nutrition editor Sara was thrilled to find a beer that's light on calories but heavy on hops.

Second Runner-Up

Coors Light (102 calories)

If I'm gonna have a beer, I want it to taste good. And I like a full-bodied beer. As far as I've been able to tell, such a beer doesn't come in either "light" or "3.2". I love Guinness, other good darks, and good IPAs. I'm not wasting money on "diet beer."

You have got to be kidding me that Bud Light is your #1 light beer and Amstel Light didn't even make the list. Can you even classify Bud Light as beer?
