Mike's Light Lemonade
Mike's comes in an 11.2oz clear bottle, so be sure to keep it out of the sun. It only has 2g of effective carbs per serving, so it's perfect for low carbers to enjoy one or two. The flavor is light and lemony - not too sweet, but not sour either. It's 4% alcohol, so in line with other light beers out there.
I find this a great pairing with typical sports-watching foods like blocks of cheese and chicken wings. It really is fresh and tasty. I've been disappointed by many super-low-carb (i.e. 2g range) beers that I've tried recently, so I was really happy to find this lemonade as an alcoholic alternative that really does have a great flavor.
Highly recommended, give one a try to see how well it suits your palate!
NOTE: As of July 2007, apparently Mike's has changed their formulation and now has 6g of carbs in it. Ah well, so much for a great low carb drink!
