I dunno about lo-cal (I don't bother reading labels), but Sam Adams Lite is 
the only lite beer that can be exported to Germany, despite Reinheitsgebot. 
Much more flavor than any other lite beer I've ever had (most of which I 
despise since being to Germany in '91 - I've had a rather... ummm... 
"continental" preference to beer since then) and "more tolerable" to those 
who prefer a more "american lager" style of beer than standard Sam Adams.

Word of warning: That ain't no "Born On date" on the label, it's an 
expiration mark (just like they do in Germany), and most shopkeepers don't 
know how to read it correctly here in the US.

[[ BTW, my fave is Sam Adams Cherry Wheat, a smooth, fruity concoction 
which I find quite pleasing -- I consider it "comfort food." ;-) ]]

Well, I started at 186 7 weeks ago, now down to 178 and dropping...

Life's too short to drink cheap beer. ;^>  When my faves get too expensive, 
then I'll make more time to kick in my latent homebrew hobby.
