berkshirejohn (4534) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2008
30cl bottle. Straw with a loose white head; hoppy aroma with a touch of vanilla; smooth and oily in the mouth, with lots of tropical fruit and a hint of pear drops;short bitter finish. Much better than the ordinary Amstel in my opinion.

Bottled. Pale golden colour, mediumsized creamy white head which leaves good lace. Aroma is alcohol, some malts and fruity hops. Flavour is quite much the same, sweet and alcoholic overall.

Drinkable, but a little on the bitter side. not my favorite but not the most hated, with so many other better beers why bother?
