Light / Pale Lager


This style is the most popular in the world and includes mass produced giants like Budweiser, Heineken, Carlsberg, Coors, Miller, etc. The BJCP distinguishes between light and standard versions, however, they are so similar that we have lumped them together. Light/Pale lagers are light straw to medium yellow in colour.

The flavuor of this style should be mild or non-existent with very little (if any) in the way of hop bitterness/flavor or malt flavour, although sometimes they are all-malt. They typically have a crisp, clean flavour with medium-high levels of artificial carbonation. These beers are designed to be refreshing with no fruit flavours. Light/Pale Lagers are typically lower in carbohydrates and calories than other styles and the alcohol usually ranges between 4%-6%
