What are the Best Light Beers – Top 10 List

Guinness Vs.Tivo

What are the best light beers is an excellent question and a timely one being summertime and that our tendency to drink light beers goes up with the summer heat. There are typically two camps when you look at the top selling and most popular light beers, Bud Light and Miller Light. Light beer drinkers typically choose (with passion) one over the other. I am in the Bud Light camp but will drink a miller light if that is my only option. best light beers

  1. Guinness (yes Guinness, look at the calories and you will agree)
  2. Heineken Light
  3. Becks Light
  4. Labatts Blue Light
  5. Bud Light
  6. Samuel Adams Light
  7. Corona Light
  8. Amstel Light
  9. Leinenkugel’s Amber Light
  10. Abita Light

Don’t try to test them all in one night. Light beers begin to taste the same after a few anyways. Light beer tends to be the backup beer after enjoying one or two quality beers like a Sierra Nevada of Newcastle Brown Ale. Some light beers are so light you might as well go with a non-alcoholic beer like Michelob Ultra and Coors Light. Light beers are also goo to use in cooking like beer can chicken. Excellent marinades have light beer to help with tenderizing. Also, light beer is good in a margarita, especially if your margarita mix is not that great (cuts the sweetness). What are some other good uses for light beer?

One More Wanna Be Light Mexican Beer…Miller Chill, Miller Light

Miller Brewing Company is test marketing a Light Mexican beer called Miller Chill, Chelada-style light beer. It has the essence of lime and salt in their Miller Light beer. It is a spin on marketing their beer with the Mexican flair and their timing for the launch is good with the summer around the corner. It is not bad if you are looking for the lime and salt taste and with 110 calories, 4.2% alcohol and 6.5 carbs, it hits the mark for the calorie and carb conscience…but not for the true beer lover.

miller chill light beerOverall, I would add it to the list to not be ever considered for a consumable beer…especially a light Mexican beer. It lacks the skunky taste that Mexican beers can have but for drinkability, I only tried one and could barely finish so trying two seems unreasonable.

Miller Chill is Not the New Zima

Time has elapsed and Miller Chill has been tested for drink ability vs. other weak concoctions rying to disguise themselves as beer. The verdict is, it may very well be the next Zima or the fruity malt liquor type beer. Miller Chill, being that it is a light beer with lime and salt flavoring, Chelada-style light beer, is a beer you can put along side a fad beer that will be a collectors item for those collecting beer bottle memorabilia here today and gone tomorrow. If you brought this beer over to some friends, hopefully you are thought of as a jokester and you may be able to pull it off once…but why bother. Better choice…Amstel Light…a proven universal crowd please in the light beer department.
