2006 Brewers Association Style Guidelines
Other Low Strength Ales or Lagers
Any style of beer can be made lower in strength than described in the classic style guidelines. The goal should be to reach a balance between the style's character and the lower alcohol content. Beers entered in this category should not exceed 4.1% by volume (3.3% by weight). Refer to this guide when making styles lower in alcohol and appropriately identify the style created (for example: half-alt, singlefest, baby bock).
