As much as we love enjoying the delicious taste of beer, some of us tend to be cautious about the amount we're drinking. It can really take a toll on our bodies. Our favorite beers can hold a lot of calories in just one bottle. And it's a total tease, especially when we're following a strict diet to lose a couple of pounds.

But there are, in fact, low calorie beers out there. For people who can't dare to drink regular beer, there are beer brands that've created "light" versions of their best beers. So, if you're ahead of your diet game, don't want to risk gaining weight, but want to go out drinking with friends, these are the best lowest calorie light beers to enjoy! And remember to always drink responsibility.

Miller is an all-American beer brewing company that’s located right in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. So many people can’t head out with friends without grabbing a pack of their finest beer. Great in taste and aroma, the brand’s Lite version follows that same path.

Budweiser Select 55 does have just 55 calories in a single bottle. With its clear golden yellow appearance, this beer gives off scents of caramel malts, wheat, and corn with additional notes of cooked vegetables and herbs. While just the aroma is luring, the taste is just as delicious. With toasted caramel malts, wheat, corn, and even cereal grains, if you’re into a hint of bitterness, then this is your kind of beer.

The light lager is among the best lowest calorie light beers with its light-golden color within every bottle.
