Slightly Mighty is definitely playing to a certain audience, but it does so to good effect. At only 95 calories and 3.6 grams of carbs, it's brewed with locally grown barley as well as monk fruit extract for a slightly sweet note and a bit more robustness than your typical light beer offers, though it remains remarkably sessionable and easy to enjoy. A light gold color, it has a solid hop profile to the bouquet, expressed in waves of light tropical fruit and citrus peels that carry through to the crisp, lightweight palate. There's ample bitterness on the palate, with a lightly peppery and dry finish that's crisp and clean. Lauren Buzzeo

What Is Blind Tasting?

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
