It's important to note that beer makers are constantly fine tuning their formulas and tweaking the nutritional values in them. Beer values can even vary from location to location. Many low carb beers now list their nutritional information on the label, so always go with what the label says for the final word.
Low carb beers are lighter in flavor. You should do everything you can to bring out as much of the beer's flavor as you can. Store the cans/bottles away from sunlight so they do not get skunked. Did you know light can skunk a beer in Under a Minute?
For the best flavor, do not drink the beer out of the bottle or can. Pour it into a glass and let the foam settle. It should be served right from the fridge. If you can, store a few beer glasses in the freezer so you can serve your beer in the frosted glass.

My personal favorites? I happen to enjoy the Amstel Light - it has a good body and good flavors. It's not watery. I personally would rather drink a GOOD tasting beer and just have one vs drinking lots of beer that is watery and has little flavor.
When I'm just looking for a "light alcoholic drink" I like the Thin Ice a lot. It's not heavy and has a tasty flavor. Mike's Light Lemonade is also great, and can be used as a mixer too!
