Honesty, I have an all malt American lager that I bittered to 16 IBU and it's way more bitter than coors orig. My cream ale gets 12-14 IBU and it's a lot more bitter than coors orig. If I were to try and clone it, I think I'd shoot for somewhere in the 6-10 range, starting at about 8. In a beer this light I find a couple IBU's very detectable.
The power to tax, once conceded, has no limits; it contains until it destroys. I was not joking when I told them to dig into their own pouches. It may not be possible to do away with government sometimes I think that government is an inescapable disease of human beings. But it may be possible to keep it small and starved and inoffensive and can you think of a better way than by requiring the governors themselves to pay the costs of their antisocial hobby?

Beersmith sez that a Lite American Lager should have between 8-12 IBUs.
