Low & Non-Alcoholic Beer
Low alcohol beers range from the typical "non-alcoholic" beers which typically contain around 0.5% to the various European table beer styles. These include Hvidtøl and Skibsøl from Denmark, the Dutch oud bruins, svagdricka from Sweden, kalja from Finland, various Klass, Scandinavian lagers and table beers from the Teutonic countries as well. The base criteria is that the beer should be under 3% but still contain some alcohol - which rules out Malta/Malzbier. Otherwise, the class can be a bit of a free-for-all stylistically, ranging from bland lagers through alcohol-free Weizenbiere, to the smoky Skibsøl.
