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.

Coors Light is the best light beer around. It is cold and refreshing and is enjoyable year round! Plus it is far less calories than Bud Light

This one tastes like water... I'm surprised to see it in third place, especially when the first two are flavorful.
