10 of the world’s lowest calorie beers 2020

10. Guinness Draught

ABV: 4.2%
Calories: 125 per 12oz
Style: Stout
Brand owner: Diageo

Guinness is typically perceived as being higher in calories than a lot of beers, perhaps due to its creamy top and rich flavour, but it is actually not much more calorific than many lighter beers, and in many cases less so. Its dark colour and sweetness come from small amounts of roasted barley, while the creamy texture results from its use of CO2 and nitrogen in its carbonation, compared with normal beers that only use carbon dioxide. Nitrogen bubbles are smaller than CO2 bubbles, resulting in a smoother mouthfeel. It carries just 125 calories per 12oz serving. That’s around 210 per pint.
