Default Anyone recommend a light beer?

Does anyone have a recipe for a "light" beer that doesnt have as much cals like the big 3 lights? I'd like to give that a try since I dont like to drink from the big 3 anymore.

Really any beer with a low OG is going to have less calories than a stronger beer.

Any small beer (<1.040 OG) would qualify. There are many bitters, milds and blondes in this range.

Just make any light ale you like but reduce the malt to 4 lbs...
