At first glance you might think Beachside Sunlight is water, but it’s quite possibly one of the best lawnmower beers around. FBC bills it as a “premium light beer,” and their recipe is right on the money. The beer itself is an extremely pale yellow, and although it has a small head, massive amounts of carbonation spring up from the center of the glass. You’d think it might taste watery and have no flavor, like mass-produced light beers, but this one will surprise you: It’s got a full flavor that joyfully spreads over your tongue, with none of the bad bite and aftertaste you have in mass-produced swill. I was incredibly surprised at how good this one is, and it truly is perfect for true refreshment on a hot summer day. The big brewers should take a lesson from FBC on how to create the ultimate light beer.
