Nuffield (3714) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2004
I had a bottle of Amstel today that was brewed under license in Burundi. There are no native Burundian beers as far as I could find. Pale yellow, grassy aroma, fizzy body, metallic aftertaste. No surprise there.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2004
Draught. Minimal aroma. Quite sweet with refreshing bitterness. A bit thin but better than average cheap lager.

Good pilsener but nothing special about it. Especially the actions in combination with the Champions League I like.

Amstel is brewed locally in a lot of countries. This show in different tastes for several different countries. The dutch pilsner variant is common on taps and from bottle both. Quite a tasty pilsener with a bit more taste than most but still easy to drink. Always drink it well chilled. Great for an evening out drinking in a bar. Quality draft pilsener. However I have met some much poorer local variant during travels. On rating this beer please mention it’s origin !!!

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2005 Not the best of beers i have tasted...Don’t be fooled by the European name and brand. Quite refreshing though and goes down well.

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2004
Bottled, Vue Pointe Hotel, Montserrat. The source of the beer was not stated on the bottle and I would not be surprised if it was brewed under license somewhere in the Caribbean. Just another bland lager - nothing too objectionable, but not much to say either.

bluevegie (3059) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2004
Compact white head on top of a pale golden body. Aroma of malt and then some grains. Sweet metallic taste with a slight touch of hop bitterness. Not bad but a little thin.

KBeer (117) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2004
One of the better macro lagers. Its on par with the rest of the average 'premium' beer market. Pale yellow and thin with hints of grain.
