10. Corona Light

  • Calories: 99

Corona Light has only 99 calories, but it’s pretty flavorful and definitely gets you in the spirit of summer. (Of course, you can drink it any time of year.) Plus, the key accessory to the perfect Corona Light is a lime, and limes pack a lot of vitamin C. Pop one in your Corona Light for an added health boost.

9. Heineken Light

  • Calories: 99

Heineken has a flavor that is unlike the other ones on this list. It has a unique brewing process, giving it more of an edge in flavor than most light beers. At 99 calories, its tied for the highest-calorie beer on this list, but compared with non-light beers, its calorie count is still low.

8. Miller Light

  • Calories: 96

Miller Light is one of those beers that gets lost between the ever-popular Bud Light and Coors Light. But this beer only has 96 calories, putting it at No. 8 on the list. It also has a bit more flavor than Coors Light but tastes pretty different from Bud Light, which should put it in a league of its own.

7. Natural Light

  • Calories: 95

Natural Light might be one of those beers that reminds you of your college days, but it also happens to be one of the lowest-calorie beers on the market. At 95 calories, it’s similar to a few others on this list, but its low cost makes a great, budget-friendly option. However, with a low cost and low calories also comes a blander flavor, but it’s still a great bang for your buck.

6. Michelob Ultra

  • Calories: 95

Michelob Ultra is one of the most flavorful beers on this list. While it does provide about a third more calories than some of the higher-ranked beers, if you are looking for a beer that doesn’t “taste healthy” this should be your drink of choice. Plus, Michelob Ultra now has an organic beer.

5. Anheuser-Busch Light Pale Lager

  • Calories: 95

Anheuser-Busch makes all-American beers, such as Budweiser, Bud Light, and this light pale lager. With 95 calories, it has enough flavor that you can drink it without feeling like you’re on any kind of diet. Plus, it’s the same company that features adorable puppies and Clydesdales in its commercials, so that gives it some leverage, too.

4. Amstel Light

  • Calories: 95

This beer sits in the middle of the pack at No. 4. It has 95 calories, which puts it in the same league as a few other beers on this list. But it still packs a decent amount of flavor. And it has 3.5% alcohol by volume, so it’s not quite as buzzworthy as some of the other light beers, making it a good choice if you’re not looking to drink too much.

3. Miller 64

  • Calories: 64

Miller 64 commercials have a catchy song about how much everyone loves Miller 64, but if that isn’t enough to get you try it, maybe its calorie count is. It’s named as such because it only contains 64 calories, making it the third lightest beer on this list. Plus, it only has 2.4 grams of carbs, so it’s worth giving it a try if you’re watching your figure.

2. Beck’s Premier Light

  • Calories: 63

Beck’s Premier Light takes the No. 2 spot. At only 63 calories, you could sip two of these and still take in fewer calories than most beers have in one bottle. Plus, it’s only 2.3% alcohol by volume, so it won’t get you nearly as buzzed as most beers, which typically range between 4% and 5%.

1. Budweiser Select 55

  • Calories: 55

At 55 calories, Budweiser Select 55 is by far the lowest calorie beer on this list. With fewer calories comes less flavor, though, which is a bit of a tradeoff. However, if you make this your go-to beer, you’ll be used to it in no time. It doesn’t taste bad; just a bit blander than the Bud Light or Budweiser you might be used to.
