Style: Low Alcohol Beer
 
Style Information
Low Alcohol Beer is also known as "non-alcoholic or NA beer". It is also sometimes called "Small beer", "small ale" or "near beer". Most examples of the style are lagers.

From Wikipedia:

"In the United States, beverages containing less than 0.5% alcohol by volume (ABV) were legally called non-alcoholic, according to the now-defunct Volstead Act. Due to its very low alcohol content, NA beer may be legally sold to minors in most American states.

In the United Kingdom, the following descriptions apply by law (correct as of May 2007):

No alcohol/alcohol-free: not more than 0.05% ABV
Dealcoholised: over 0.05% and under 0.5% ABV
Low-alcohol: not more than 1.2% ABV

In the rest of the European Union, beer must contain no more than 0.5% ABV if it is labeled "alcohol-free".

Although labeled as non-alcoholic, some beers may still contain small amounts of alcohol; as a result, some American states prohibit their sale to minors and even to young adults.

In countries where alcohol advertising is forbidden or limited, non-alcoholic versions of popular brands of alcoholic beverages have been created for the purpose of advertisement."
