    for example, Anchor Steam (which is wonderful for flavor) comes in at 4.9%.  Other good ales are as follows:

    Alaskan: 4.6
    Highlander Scottish (Great Lakes): 4.6
    Boddington's: 4.7
    Fuller's: 4.7
    Blue Heron (Bridgeport): 4.9
    Alaskan Amber: 5.0
    Harpoon: 5.0
    Pyramid Pale Ale: 5.1
    Stone Pale Ale: 5.4
    Troeg's Pale Ale: 5.4

    I think you get the idea.  Now, if you want strong, try the Golden Monkey from Victory in Lancaster, PA....

      Stone Ruination - 9.2
      Port Brewing's Wipeout IPA - 7.0
      Port Brewing's High Tide IPA - 6.5
      Lost Abbey's Serpent’s Stout - 11.0
      Alesmith Speedway Stout - 11.0
      Alesmith IPA - 7.25
      Alesmith Yule Smith (winter) - 9.5
      Ballast Point Sculpin IPA - 7.0
      Ballast Point Big Eye IPA - 7.0
      Russian River's Pliny the Elder - 8.0
      Coronado Islander IPA - 7.0

      Just to name a few.

      Like I said, 6.8 is below average for me. Seems you like lighter bodied beers, so yes, that makes sense that the average beer you drink is lower in alcohol.
