What is a silver beer?

Silver beer (uncountable) (United Kingdom) Beer is traditionally served after a game of Cornish hurley; the silver ball from the game is placed in the mug. Presenting the product as a “low-carb and low-calorie” addition to its range in the country, the Dutch brewery claimed that Heineken Silver was the ideal choice for the US market. Heineken Silver, the most anticipated product launch in the company's history, takes center stage as a new premium option in the light beer category, which account for nearly half of American beers. With 4% alcohol by volume (ABV), Heineken Silver is made specifically for the American palate with a more accessible flavor profile and 3.2 g of carbohydrates and 95 calories in a 12-ounce serving.

Heineken Silver will be launched nationally this spring in 12 oz thin cans, 12 oz bottles, and 24 oz cans.
