Yuengling Flight isn’t the first light beer from the iconic Pennsylvania-based brewery (that one came out in 1986), but it is the most in tune with the zeitgeist. Technically called FLIGHT by Yuengling, the beer hits just 95 calories and 2.6g of carbs, making for indeed a very light and low-carb experience.
Low-carb brews are rarely an elevated drinking experience, but Yuengling’s is certainly as approachable as any mainstream lager, light or no. A solid bill of malt gives it an ample breadiness, while notes of lemon peel, a grind of white pepper, and a note of dried flowers give the otherwise cracker-crisp beer a light lift.
Yuengling’s standard brews are more interesting, but if I was watching my figure, I’d drink it.
