2006 Brewers Association Style Guidelines

Major Style:Lager
Sub-Style Name:Australasian, Latin American or Tropical-Style Light Lager

Australasian, Latin American or Tropical light lagers are very light in color and light bodied. Hop bitterness, aroma and flavor should be negligible to very low. Sugar adjuncts are often used to lighten the body and flavor, sometimes contributing to a slight apple-like fruity ester. Sugar, corn, rice, and other cereal grains are used as an adjunct.

Very low sweet corn-like dimethylsulfide (DMS) is sometimes characteristic of style. Chill haze and diacetyl should be absent. Fruity esters should be very low. Generally, highly carbonated.

Alcohol By Weight (by Volume):2.3-4.5% (2.9-5.6%)
Colour:2-4 (4-8 EBC)
Original Gravity:1.032-1.046 (8-11.5 šPlato)
Final Gravity:1.004-1.010 (1-2.5 šPlato)
