COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beautiful golden color with a mildly bitter taste and cheerful character.

DanielBrown (3825) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2003
Bottled. This is a really unpleasant lager, with a sweaty, rancid quality. Each gulp provides a mouthful of disappointment.

jonas (5658) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 18, 2003
Thin, boring, pale straw color, overcarbonated, watery body. Only a minimum of the necessary flavors.

lasonovich (151) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 17, 2003
It's ok, for some reason every time I drink amstel it feels really heavy. A bit of malt in the flavour but european chemical after taste

fiulijn (14777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2003
Blond color. Some light malt aroma and malt flavor; quite round in the front, dryer at the end.

Smells slightly hoppy, sweet medium with a slight bitter finish. An ok lager, better than some, good on a hot day icy cold. cheers

I was delighted with this beer. On special for $30 a case I wasn't expecting much, but Amstel is a nice Lager beer.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 10, 2003
On tap in Amsterdam. Light gold and very carbonated with a grassy-hay aroma. Mildy bitter with some toasty malt flavor, but not much. Unremarkable and average.

what a lager!! and i'm talking about the Greek draft brew that i drink on Holiday lovely carbonated medium bodied lager all that is good about lager smashing light woody aftertaste that makes me linger for more slightly bloating though!! i guess i may be drinking too much of it!!

Had this one in Bermuda. Pours a gold color with a decent head. Trace of hops in the smell. Tastes basically how Bud would taste with no adjuncts. Would be refreshing on a 95 degree day in the middle of a parking lot. Otherwise a boring beer.

Canned. Brewed from the S African brewery. Oddly I couldn't find an orginial one in the Philly area to compare. A ho-hum beer. Nothing special. Tasted like a boring beer.
