Alcohol

Alcohol is the main product of fermentation. The amount present in a beer is expressed as a percentage of either volume or weight.

Alcohol is the component of beer that makes it an intoxicating beverage, depending on the amount per serving that is present. Most beer styles are relatively low in alcoholic content compared to wine.
