One of the nice things about the Sam website is that they list the ingredients and some other info about the beers. I don't think the SA Light is a "Lite" beer like the BMC products but just a lower gravity lager. The site says the beer is 9 Plato, 4.1 ABV, uses pale malt, 60L crystal and Spalt hops. Try this:
7.5 lbs domestic pale
.25 lbs crystal 60L
.75 oz Spalt @ 60 minutes
.25 oz Spalt @ 15 minutes
I would do a main rest @ 148F for 60 minutes and maybe another 15 minutes @ 158F to get the FG down but still leave some body. Wyeast 2042 Danish is my general purpose lager yeast but use what you like.
