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)

It's sweet, with a hint of apple. "Fizzy and refreshing," says intern Danielle. Perfect for a hot day.

Becks was the only Light I would drink for a long time. Like others here, I go for the Taste, Taste, Taste. Coors Light? I can remember jokes (not repeatable here) from 40+ years ago about how watery all the Coors brews were.

I love Beck's light! It's the only beer I drink. I wouldn't touch Budweiser, Coors or Miller's if they were the only ones offered. Yuck! Yuck! Yuck! Plus Coors is a huge polluter in Colorado.

The problem with this beer is it's low alcohol content - you have to drink more just to get a little buzz!

This is actually my favorite beer right now. It is not heavy and it has a lot of flavor for a light beer. And it has less calories than most light beers.

Has a more complex flavor than most light beers, especially for an "ultra-light" with only 64 calories! WIsh more restaurants and bars carried it...

Becks Light tastes so watered down it doesn't come close to satisfying the desire of a cold beer.

Calorie-wise this is a winner... probably the lowest in calories and carbs. Flavor is pretty good, too.
