A bit of a watery taste but still had a pint of it each morning with breakfast on holiday in Malia.

It poured with a nice head that quickly fled. The taste was slightly better than massed produced lagers. It went down smooth which was the best part of this beer.

Well I've been warned to stay away from Amstel Light, but I figured I'd give regular Amstel a try. An acceptable pale lager, bland in most respects but drinkable, has a very soft palate, very smooth. What taste there is, is grainy with some grassy bitter flavor, not as adjunct-sweet as others. A cheap thirst quencher, better than Heineken IMHO.

Why oh why did I drink it. Light watery mouthfeel with an aftertaste that lingers and not in a pleasant way. Very little substance to this.

Tasted several times. Nothing special...if you drink it for the can has some metallic taste. Medium carbonation and malty. Next one please!

Standard international lager. Golden yellow with limited white head. Quite fizzy. Taste is mainly malt and some hops. Refreshing but nothing out of the ordinary

edsspoon (303) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2014
Keg - Golden with a thin white head which fades to a ring. Aroma of barely anything, some lager malts. Taste is malts and a tiny bit of hops, very watery, some bitterness. Light body, light carb. Not offensive.

Can. Clear yellow with a medium white head. Aroma has corn, ripe fruit and grain. Taste has grain, some citrus, metal and cardboard. A bit watery. Aftertaste is decent. Quite bad even in the generic lager category.
