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.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2003 Yellow, beer, a little pale. Quite an ordinary lager with a sweet taste, but it feels a little thin

Darker blond with almost no head. Weak hop aroma. Slightly sweet short taste with a light bitter finish. No surprises, you know what you get.

Disappointing -- beer-flavoured water. Nothing to recommend it. It would be a last choice for me.

BroueNeault (158) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2004 Often the only beer served on tap in french cafés. This is unfortunate, because the beer is very insipid. Not much aroma, not much taste. The reason of Amstel succes is probably good marketing...

Had this one at the IN DE MORIAN in Maastricht, Netherlands, commonly known as "The Littlest Pub in Maastricht" (30 people make this place crowded... great place to visit... Amstel and Westmalle are their drinks of choice... comparable to Brand... pretty good beer... maybe my rating is influenced by the fun I had visiting that place with a big group of friends almost every night while in the Netherlands...

Light yellow colour. Small white slight head. Lots of bubbles and carbonation though very little head. Little or no discernable taste.

LINKBREW (101) - Santee, California, USA - JUL 12, 2003
Only beer on tap in the Haarlem restauranr we visted. Very disappointing. Very light in all aspects. No aroma, very little flavor. A waste of time. However, it obovious has mass appeal.
