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...

Chokehold (20) - cape town, SOUTH AFRICA - NOV 30, 2004
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.

Burner (78) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - NOV 28, 2004
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.

YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - NOV 23, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2007 sweetish weak taste, very watery, very thin, boring, not much of a beer, too light, really not my taste, who drinks this stuff?, maybe little girls?

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

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - NOV 17, 2004
Very weak aroma. Crisp, hoppy, slightly sour taste ending in a medium dry finish. One-dimensional, but drinkable.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 24, 2004
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.

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 23, 2004
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...

SilkTork (5375) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2004
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]
