2006 Brewers Association Style Guidelines

Major Style:Lager
Sub-Style Name:American Malt Liquor
Origin:North American

High in starting gravity and alcoholic strength, this style is somewhat diverse. Some American malt liquors are just slightly stronger than American lagers, while others approach bock strength. Some residual sweetness is perceived.

Hop rates are very low, contributing little bitterness and virtually no hop aroma or flavor. Perception of sweet-fruity esters and complex alcohols (though not solvent like) are acceptable at low levels. Chill haze, diacetyl should not be perceived.

Alcohol By Weight (by Volume):5-6% (6.25-7.5%)
Colour:2-5 (4-10 EBC)
Original Gravity:1.050-1.060 (12.5-15 šPlato)
Final Gravity:1.004-1.010 (1-2.5 šPlato)
