When I go out, I simply drink light beer, like Miller Lite or Bud Light. Don't like the feeling of being filled up by regular/craft beers.

Flame away.

drink German helles beer or pils, hardly any more calories but twice as much flavor, schwarzbier works too.

Drinking miller lite to avoid being filled up is just something born out of marketing i think, quite frankly it is overpriced. When i lived in germany the last few months everyone: women, wine drinkers, weight watchers, ect all drank helles beer and never complained about being bloated. Hell, they could put down a few maßes of them.

I agree to a point, coming back from Germany i can't drink high gravity craft beers like i used to.

I don't think is as much marketing - I drink that because it really doesn't fill me up. Don't get me wrong, I really like and appreciate craft beer, but I only drink it when I'm at home and can enjoy it.

you can achieve the same thing with helles beer (who knew helles means "light" in German) and actually enjoy it, ironically miller lite fills me up because it tastes so bad i can't take more than a few sips. Just trying to help you out staying away form the big giants who don't set out to produce quality beer.

You may like "Helles" because its a term meaning light in color and is specific to a style of German blond lagers (as opposed to Czech Pilsner style). Spaten, Paulaner, Augustiner lagers are all Helles. "Leicht" is what the Germans use to mean lower calories and/or alcohol. German leicht beers tend to suck too.

All of the Leicht Weissbiers are crappier than the originals but miles ahead of miller or the like. I wasn't using Helles to denote "Lite" beers just pointing out that it is an easy to drink style that isn't very filling.

Poured from a can into a pint glass.

A: Pours a nice golden amber color with a finger width head. Fades after a bit, a moderate amount of lacing left behind.

S: Very bready with caramel and roasted malt hints. Undertones of grain and citrus present as well.

T: As with the scent, nice malt and caramel tones with a slight bitterness.

M: Medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.

D: Nice drinkability. Not one to pound back, but more than one can be enjoyed.

A fair Canadian brew.

Even though I'm broke, I decided to splurge for the first televised Wings game today with an old favorite, a sixer of Two Hearted.

Rogue first growth single malt, three floyds jinx proof, and labatt blue dry tonight, the jinx proof is the best, as a light lager it rips the labatt about 15 new bowels.

Been splurging a bit lately. Have a sixer of Great Lakes Commodore Perry in the fridge for tonights game.


Drank my last few of bottles of Brew Kettle White Rajah during last nights game. Good stuff! (too bad the game was a disappointment)

Bud Light Golden Wheat.

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy amber color. Nice two finger width head that fades before too long, leaving behind pretty minimal lacing.

S: A pleasant grainy scent with hints of citrus and coriander with hints of wheat.

T: Very similar to the scent. Flavors of grain and wheat with citrus. A nice hint of spice as well. Pretty similar to Blue Moon.

M: Light body. Pretty moderate carbonation.

D: This is an easy one to drink. A step above Bud Light.

Pretty good choice. Better than what I was expecting.

Serving type: bottle
