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.

This one is my absolute favorite! I love all Sam Adams beers, and was delighted when I discovered they had a light beer that didn't taste watery like some of them can.

If you have to ask how many calories a beer has in order to drink it. You're drinking beer for the wrong reason. Light beer, in my humble opinion, doesn't have the taste of a regular beer. Having said that I have had Sam light and Amstel light and they are close. Michaelob Ultra is as close to flavored water as you can get.

Very full flavored, tastes like a regular beer but has half the calories.
