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

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2003
Tried this one once a while back because I was a fan of amstel light. Tastes just like a medium bodied version of the light. Something was lacking in this one though, not enough hops. Overcarbonated.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUN 29, 2003
Draught, at the Shakespear Tevern Crisp, bitter larger. Fizzy golden beer. Certainly taste better in Amsterdam.

RichardGretton (4228) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2003
Standard lager appearance with very little aroma but very fresh. A plain lightly hopped lager flavour that makes an overall refreshing beer when served cold.

Jayb0 (1002) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUN 16, 2003
draft: tastes not unlike amstel light in a bottle, somewhat less harsh on the palate. Standard lager, more refreshing/less sweet than some couterparts.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2003
Heineken lager scores less than this? Sorry. Thinner than its brother and less hop presence.

philb (20) - Wangaratta, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2003 A lot better than many of the 'other' mainstream (read: affordable) beers. Seeing the number of different countries giving this beer ratings confirms my idea of universal appeal. Smooth and soft with no nasties Really, I don't know why this beer is so underrated!

fly (1417) - austin, Tejas, Alabama, USA - MAY 1, 2003
Another middle of the road not too upsetting other than wishing like hell that the next tasting I go to has a whole lot more to offer thank you very much but I guess I will say that it was okay and that I expected much less

larsniclas (5561) - Billdal, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2003
A hint of perfume both in the aroma and the flavour. A full body and taste. A positive surprise to me!

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2003
Golden color. Hoppy nose with some perfume in it. Creamy head. Herbal flavor. An acceptable International Standard Lager.

haukur (1270) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - APR 9, 2003
a very typical and decent lager. Light and easy to drink, and probably nice on a hot day served very chilled
