2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fairly standard lager. Golden colored, relatively light. Nothing terribly special. Interestingly enough, I canít seem to find this in America. Amstel Light, yes. The standard stuff, no. Not that itís any great loss...

I would only drink this beer, if i could not afford or find guinness. Yellow in color, not the most pleasing beer out there. good if you are planning in on getting pissed.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brewed under license in SA by SAB. Seems to have inherited the traits of the local beers here. Fairy bitter, water with no body. Light yellow colour, with a stale smell to it. Very different to the Amstel i drank in Europe.

Shining yellow. Aroma does not introduce particular characteristics having weak person. Escaping.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very weak aroma. Crisp, hoppy, slightly sour taste ending in a medium dry finish. One-dimensional, but drinkable.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pretty light and thin with no real faults but there is a distinctive Cascade hop flavour to it. Thereís no Cascade aroma and the flavour is mild, but definitely there. I must have been imagining things though - thereís no way such a beer would use American hops like that. It did make it a bit interesting though.

Did I taste soap? Or was it beer? Looks like a normal Pale Lager, but phew...I think they took water out of the river, added soap and hoppy notes et voila...

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2006 Oct, 2004Le Petit Moka, Nimes. Pression. Called Amstel Free. Fruit acid, lemon tea, some interesting sourness and a very noticable though not that pleasant bitterness. We wondered if this was off or the sourness was intentional. [1.8]
June, 2006 Cafe de France, Tour de Ville, Valreas, Provence. Pression. Midly soapy with a soapy finish. Rubbery vague biterness. Instant tea. Poor showing, but drinkable. [1.7]
