Low/ No Alcohol
With the increase in low alcohol beers and the quantity of alcohol allowed in a beer to be called ‘non-alcoholic’, it can be a little confusing.
Amazingly, there is no hard and fast rules for describing levels of alcohol free beer in many parts of the world. Some definitions conflict with European laws and while there are many calls for the situation to be clarified once and for all, it’s really up to the consumer to read the bottle.
A general guide (and this is not set in stone) would be:
Low Alcohol = Drinks containing between 0.5% and 3% ABV.
Alcohol Free = Drinks containing 0.5% ABV or less.
