It's a good Beer. I'm more into German Pilsners (lagers) but a Heineken goes down smooth as well.

Ill get hated on by this, but I love Keystone Light... Kind of goes against my "beer snobbishness" but I drank it when I was poor and it still has a special place in my heart.

I have a nostalgia for canned Modelo and water; so fishing, rafting I go canned Modelo which is a light lager I believe.

For me, I only really drink light lager in things like drinking games. Haha so for the most part it doesn't really matter. But if I had to pick one as the best, I would probably just go a traditional route and say Natural Light.

Good as well! I can't get it here, but a buddy found one in his fridge after a party he had. He knows I appreciate beers I've never had and gave it to me. I really liked it!

Bohemia!

Some other judges and I once got together and did a blind tasting of 15 or so National brands of American Lagers. The winner was PBR.

What are some examples of "light lagers" when I see that I think Bud Light, Coors Light, Miller Lite, etc.
