The Full Review

In a can akin to a skinny Silver Bullet, Swipe Light, a "refreshing ale," as Southern Tier defines it, packs refreshment and flavor into a small package. At just 110 calories and 4 percent ABV, it has a sweet citrus aroma, like fresh-squeezed orange juice. The body, as expected, is crisp and light, with a slight bitterness and an essence of hop flavor from two top-tier varietals, Citra and Mosaic. A refreshing take on "light" beer, Swipe Light is somewhere between a light lager and a session IPA. We've got room for all three in our fridge.
