  1. the most satisfying beers for under 140 calories


    Most light beers save only about 20 to 50 calories per bottle -- and some even outweigh regular beers. It's mostly marketing, says Garrett Oliver, Brooklyn Brewery brewmaster and author of The Brewmaster's Table. Want maximum taste, minimum guilt?

  2. I sure hope I don't find a low calorie good tasting beer as it will get me on the boozers bandwagon again. But i might be able to learn some control.

    Cool post I will have to try the winner.

    I think you could add 3 scoops of whey into guiness and not affect consistancy/flavor.

  5. Miller Light- 97
    Heineken- 163

    My two choices.

  6. When I do drink I really like "Sleeman: Clear" Its a light canadian beer that has only 90cals and 2.5 carbs per bottle. Its only 4% but tastes pretty good.

  7. I knew you guys would like this one

  8. Becks Premium Light...

    Bud Select is pretty big round here too

  9. Rolling Rock Green light has 82 cals a beer. This is the lowest I've ever been able to find. It even beat the Mick Ultra in cals. Taste is ok, I like miller lite better.

  10. Sam Adams Light: 127 cals, 9.7g carbs

    Amstel Light: 95 cals, 5g carbs

    In the summer, it is often worth going for a Corona (or maybe a half dozen): 147 cals, 13g carbs

  11. Corona with lime is hard to beat!

  12. I have to say though, at least when the weather isn't warm, Guinness seems like the clear choice. If you're trying to minimize cals, drinking Guinness likely means drinking less. If I drink Mich. Ultra, I'll easily put away 8-12. I don't think I have ever consumed more than 3-4 Guinness, even when I was an outright lush.

    But w/ these 80 degree days, Corona is making my mouth water.

    Damn, I have to try that one. How can it have so few cals? It might be ridiculously low in alcohol.

    Even better...I like to enjoy my beer. I'm out of the drinking for the sake of getting drunk stage of my life. My favorite is a regular sam adams that has set out open at room temp for about 5 min...perfection!

    Beamish Irish Stout
    Magic Hat Dark Angel
    Murphy's Irish Stout

  20. I know calorieking.com has a lot of stuff in there, you might wanna check it out

    You are right on the button...I looked this up a couple of weeks ago and it's about 2.5% alcohol. I hate to say it, but my favorite beer for the bang (cals/alcohol/price) is Natty Light. I love that ****. That's my boozin' it up beer. My of choice is definitely Guinness and just about any oatmeal stout. It says oat in it...that means it's good for you, right?

  22. Guinness actually is good for you. It is in a class of its own with regards to nutritional content.

    As for the alcohol content of the Beck's Premium Light, I have to agree with Rampage Jackson's post above. I really don't care to be getting drunk anymore. I simply don't like it; it screws up my workouts, and the negative hormonal impact of the extra alcohol is undesirable too. I have a feeling the Beck's will be my brew of choice this summer.

    My English step father always tells me how farmers over in England feed their horses a can of Guinness everyweek...I hear this story every time I brin the stuff over to the rent's place.

    The Beck's Premier Light is not a bad beer per say, but it kind of tastes like soda water.

  24. Soda water is good...with Absolut Citron

  25. I love guiness it def an aquired taste for most its a meal in a glass its so heavy but i usually dont drink enought to experience negative side effects cause i get too full. From the tap its awesome from the can its good and from the bottle im not crazy about it. cheers.
