No worries: Still a Lite-Free Zone, with no 1A allowed.

Yesterday, reader Rob made an insightful observation.

I'm seriously worried that you have a beer that fits BJCP category 1A.

Not to worry, Rob. Here's a preview of the list (in development) that should answer your question. An * indicates a beer new to the list. I'm still in the process of deciding about descriptions; currently, the inclination is to have separate BJCP style compendiums available for perusal.

1. LIGHT LAGER

1A. Lite American Lager
No way. This is a Lite-Free Zone. Low calorie “light” American lagers were banned from the Public House on Jan. 1, 1994 and from the Pizzeria on Nov. 15, 2002. Good riddance.

1B. Standard American Lager
*Schlitz Gusto (Classic 1960’s Formula) … Illinois HQ; 4.7% … $.$$

1C. Premium American Lager
Red Stripe … Jamaica; 4.7% … 4.50

1D. Munich Helles
Spaten Premium Lager … Germany; 5.2% … 4.00

1E. Dortmunder Export
*Bell’s Lager … Michigan; 4.5% … $.$$
