The calories chiefly come from the alcohol.  For instance, these are probably otherwise the same beers, with a 1.8% difference in ABV:

                               Alcohol by Volume     Calories

Bud Light                    4.2%                         110
Bud Light Platinum     6%                            137

Guinness is actually low in calories because it has relatively low in alcohol.  A 12-ounce serving of Guinness has 125 calories; it is just 4.2% ABV - same as Bud Light, though infinitely more satisfying.

Dr.Fey: infinitely more satisfying



Guiness is better than bud light. but let's not engage in hyperbole. It's still a stout.

Interesting.
A shot of Everclear, contains more calories than a glass of beer.

Apparently you've never had canned Guiness.

Bud Lite might not be beer, I'm serious I'd classify it as a bubbling spirit, but it's not all that bad ice cold or free.

Whereas guiness is kinda gross outside of the ideal pint poured with nitrogen bubble around st paddy's day. Especially the canned version. That little flavor ball does nothing.

Yeah, I only drink light beer, too - because I don't want to get drunk, but like to have to piss a lot.

Americans don't know how to drink properly. So many prudish people drinking wine with their meals to "compliment the flavors" (I admit there's nuance, but not in that $5 bottle of Barefoot) or others "drinking because they like the taste."

Look, guys, we all know you're drinking because it makes you feel less stressed and enhances social feelings and makes you, well, drunk.

Put down the light beer and have an old-fashioned or a martini. You won't even need to drink eleven of them to get there.

I try to avoid any product that has "light" in the name (except when I'm trying to see)
That also goes for Lite, Lyght and Lyte
Come to think of it, ESPECIALLY when it is misspelled because it's probably a lie

I love light beer. I don't know if it's because I'm a female (most of my girlfriends like wine or mixed drinks, though). I'm in my 40s and when I was younger I drank the Guinness, Murphy's, Red Stripe, Samuel Adams, all that stuff. Lite beer is smoother to me and doesn't take over when I'm eating.

I think the reason these light beers do so well is 1. They're bought in bulk for parties 2. More people will drink them - women will likely opt for them over a Guinness from my experience (Yes, I'm sure you can rattle off all the women you know who prefer Guinnness but that hasn't been the norm), 3. They're cheaper but not seen as jokes like Natty Lite

That's patently false.  There actually are beers that taste good.  But if you buy shiat beer, you get shiat taste.  End of story.

Lately my go-to low-ABV Happy Place has been Founder's All-Day IPA.  Tastes great unlike the Bud/Miller nastiness, it's low in calories, I can have a few without worrying about driving or putting on weight afterward.  Anymore I only want higher-octane beers if I'm just having 1-2 or if I know I don't need to drive anywhere.
