Not bad, better than Heineken - slightly more hoppy, sweet and tasty. Cool bottle too. A typical "holiday" beer: tastes good whence drinking it by the bucket load on your hols; tastes like shit when you have a pint at home. I enjoyed this when in Amsterdam though: always nice to slip a pint in when you’re in between rattling prostitutes, seeing sex shows and taking drugs!

Best selling beer in the Netherlands *crying* such an average boring beer. Very popular at parties and festivals. I only drink Amstel if there isn’t anything else.

30 cl bottle: not bad at all for a mass produced lager. If I lived here in Holland I could get used to drinking this as a fridgefiller maybe, but then again there are pleanty of amazing beers here. This beer contians some flavorful cereally type malts and some nice bitter hops. I can’t bad mouth it at all for what it is. Macro brewed accepatbility

Draft, Golden yellow coloured, with some light carbonation and a small white head. Sweeter malty aroma. Medium body. Finish is sweet, very little bitter. Normal sweeter pale lager, nothing to special.

In the Netherlands most selled beer. A golden sweet lager with a nice head. A duller standard than Heineken.

I think that this beer is actually better than Heineken. It has a more full flavour and tastes more like a real beer than a cheap beer. I kind of wonder why they don’t really sell this in America and instead sell only the infereor light version of this. The Dutch are scoffing at us right now.

Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Hoppy aroma and flavour of hops and malt as well as flavour.

A very ordinary lager that is at best good for thirst-quenching in the sun. Not very exciting.

You can’t move for crates of this stuff in the Mediterranean. Or Albania. No idea why. OK, it’s a sweet, malty, candyish clear gold lager with a hint of hop bitterness. But certainly nothing worth importing by the shipping container load. But if Vergina’s the alternative, mine’s an Amstel. (Re-rate 13/10/06. Draught UK half. Crisp, bready, malty refreshment. A touch of almost smoky dryness. Different beer to the GK version, and a different class.)

Bottle (330ml & 500ml) and Tap. Not bad, reminds Heineken, you can find it everywhere. Drinkable
