Headache free beer, even when you drink a lot.
For a pilsner rather sweet.

Slightly sweet malt aroma. Medium tan with small head. Light malt flavor with slight hops finish. Better than most US macros.

this was weird, living in the usa always thought the standard for these bad beers was amstel light....makes since there would be a plane amstel. typical bad heineken pilsner with loads of sweet adjuncts. oh the way beer is suppose to be made.

Charachterless bland lager that really leaves you without any impression. It was wet, I was thirsty... ah, well...

Better than Amstel Light, which is all you can find in my area. Had this one in South Africa where it seems to be standard for high end beer drinkers. A good beer with a golden colour. High carbonation and some good sweet hoppy characteristics.

This is one of the "yellow beers" that I sampled during my recent trip to South Africa. Since these beers fit into the common catagory of "refreshing" pissy lagers, it was not worth the social stigma of whipping out my pen and taking tasting notes with my new South African aquaintences. Among these beers are Windhoek Lager, Amstel Lager, Castle Lager, and Hansa. Windhoek was the best of these, especially when it was on draft.
