2006 Brewers Association Style Guidelines

Major Style:Lager
Sub-Style Name:American Ice Lager
Origin:North American
Description:

This style is slightly higher in alcohol than most other light-colored, American-style lagers. Its body is low to medium and has low residual malt sweetness. It has few or no adjuncts. Color is very pale to golden. Hop bitterness is low but certainly perceptible. Hop aroma and flavor are low. Chill haze, fruity esters, and diacetyl should not be perceived.

Typically these beers are chilled before filtration so that ice crystals (which may or may not be removed) are formed. This can contribute to a higher alcohol content (up to 0.5% more).

Alcohol By Weight (by Volume):3.8-5% (4.6-6%)
Bitterness:7-20
Colour:2-8 (4-16 EBC)
Original Gravity:1.040-1.060 (10-15 šPlato)
Final Gravity:1.006-1.014 (1.5-3.5 šPlato)
