    What's the deal with "lite" beer?

    Is it only a chick thing, so they feel they are being calorie virtuous?  Why do/would guys drink it?

    If you are a "cheap" drunk but want to seem like you 'can' drink: you stick with the lite beer. You might have to take off the label too in that case.

    I found out by accident, while making homebrew, and confirmed with a friend of mine who worked at a large brewery, this shocking fact - lite beer is made with substandard, 'trash' barley. Thus the finished product is weaker, in flavor and in alcohol, than regular beer.
    My missus likes a honey or chocolate porter - flavorful, just a hint of sweet, and not made on the cheap.
    In short, avoid lite beer. Please!
