Key Market Issues
Flavored Beer encompasses two distinct sub-categories - true flavored beers and beer mixes. Flavored beers are defined by Canadean as normal strength beers with added flavors. Beer Mixes are beers mixed with soft drinks, typically lemonade, but also cola, fruit juice, or even Iced Tea. Beer Mixes are normally around half the strength of "normal" beer ( 2.0% to 2.5% Abv).
There is a clear trend across all alcoholic beverage categories towards sweeter tasting products. This drift towards sweeter drinks has manifested itself in a number of ways.
