freretoc (437) - Besançon, FRANCE - JAN 12, 2014
Bordel mais comme c’est immonde comme bière, un goût de... fer et puis du malt pourri. Même bourré cest dégueu

Chemical smell. Great colour. Chemical taste. Can't get over how different it is in London compared to amsterdam. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

blackisle (457) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2013
Clear golden, frothy white head, lasts a while, thin layer remains, nice lacing; rather sweet nose, straw, corn, hint of caramel, yeast; slightly sweet and mild bitter taste; medium body, oily texture, average carbonation; mild bittersweet finish

WhoU (102) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - NOV 22, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 Various bottles over the years. Golden yellow. Slightly more interesting than the other watered down pale lagers produced in large volumes. Straw with medium head and carbonation. Not the best.

Mackeon (42) - - NOV 11, 2013
Awful beer in every respect. Strange sweetness, unappetizing smell and lack of hops as well as an unnatural dark-yellow color make this one of the world’s worst pilseners. The label is a reminder of the once classic Amstel two-tone one, now spoiled by some fake heraldry draped on top of it.

Martin243 (689) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2013
I used to seek this out once over. Can’t imagine why now. Gold white head no aroma, beer like taste, watery palate. Only when desparate

Mpuntmuts (121) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2013
Poorly executed flute glass from draft. Clear Golden yellow. Fast dissipating small white head. Typical wet dog smell and not much else. With some imagination there is some hop in there. Further just watery and off putting bitter. Thin flat watery mouthfeel. Overall.......meh. sessionable maybe, regrettable in the morning....for sure.

Holmen1 (1995) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2013
Fra fat i Marbella under navnet Amstel cerveza: var helt ok til paellaen (som var utmerket), men ut over det kun en standard, kjedelig industripils.

Theis (12742) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2013
Can at Tourist Inn, Amsterdam. Clear yellow/golden - white head. Chocolate. Cardboard. Old hops. Hay. Straw. Yellow grass. Light bitter notes.
