If you are counting calories or carbs and you still want to enjoy the flavor of "Beer" then light beer is the answer. I happen to be on a carb consious diet and still want to enjoy it. Regular or heavier beer is like liquid bread and is not good for the waistline. Some young people may not have a problem but I sure don't want to be wearing my beer around my waist. At the moment I like Amstel X-Light. Low carb and full flavored (up to a point).

I used to be a beer aficionado and was into a lot of imported beers, ales and stouts. That was back in the 80's. The whole scene has changed since then with Micro Brews and such. I drank a LOT of beer in my days. I kind of left that behind. I got too fat.

And there is also one main reason for drinking fine light beer:
:::drum roll:::

...Less filling.

Actually, not really. If you want the flavor of beer versus the equivalent of carbonated water with beer essence added try Sam Adams Light. It's weirdly difficult to find in some places though not shocking since the average Bubba Merican tends to for whatever reason pound down the cheap belchy stuff...

For mass market beers, I think Michelob is still the best. Rolling Rock and PBR are also drinkable. I usually keep RR on hand.

We drink Corona Light where/when we can. Otherwise Coors Light for hubby, Bud Light for me. He can also drink Miller Lite, I can barely stand it. Unless it's free. ;-)
I REALLY like Leinie's, Bell's, Blue Moon...but like the OP said, less filling, less calories, less hangover, and less drunkenness.

It seems like you don't get drunk but it's not that much less alcohol.

ABV of some of the brands you mention.

Coors Light 4.2%
Bud Light 4.2%
Miller Light 4.2%
Corona Light 4.1%

Blue Moon 5.4%

Haven't had a light beer in years.

Do they still taste like Alka-Seltzer?

Regular beer has always given me a headache. Budweiser was what used to be popular when I was younger. But I can drink one or two light beers and feel just fine. That's the most I've ever drank of anything in one evening.
