  • if you drank one ounce, it would be 6% alcohol. the entire contents of the bottle (how ever large or small does not matter- it would be the same amount) contains 6%. it has about as much alcohol as a beer. If it is arbor mist, it IS a malt beverage.

  • The whole bottle by volume.

    I prefer bottles of white fruity Australian wines....probably because they're around 12% alcohol!!! WOOT! A bottle of that stuff and I'm tipsy, two and I'm DRUNK!!! :o)

  • It means it's 6% alcohol by volume. Basically, you'll barely get a buzz off of it even if you drank the whole thing :)
