ComradeK (1086) - Sydney, - OCT 22, 2012
500ml bottle, brewed under licence in Jordan. Pours a clear medium gold, with a moderate white head, which lasts poorly but does leave some lace. Grassy hops are the main noticeable aroma. Mild grass hops up front lead into sweetish white bread malt. The finish has a slight metallic taste to it. Not offensive, but certainly not interesting.

bartholos (177) - GERMANY - MAY 13, 2016
Can. Golden-yellow, straw colored with medium fast vanishing white head. Weak aroma, some grain, corn and a spicy hint. Not much as as well, light bitter finish. Watery thin bodied with high carbonation. Sparkling. Flavor is flat as well, spicy, a bit floral and grain. No real aftertaste.

It is a commercial beer. In a recent past, you were able to find easily this beerthis beer in Switzerland but now you have more the heineken and others beers from the same group. The body is yellow and gold, normal carbonation, thin and white foam. The taste is malty, corn, few hop, watery and soapy.

hrabren (644) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 7, 2016
On tap at new design promo on European Square, Zagreb. Pale golden, clear, small white head. Malty, cereal aroma, boring. Medium body, medium carbonation. Malty finish, very light grassy hops. As mediocre as can be.

I was really hot when I drank this -- hours of dancing on a hot, wedding dance floor. And you know what? Amstel is surprisingly good at cooling you down. That’s about the nicest thing I can say about it.

Drank this after a Heineken and it tasted like fizzy water. That pretty much sums it up. Good bubbles, blander than rice wrapped in paper dunked in water whilst listening to Adele.

Butelka 660ml. Blado zolte. Piana biala srednia szybko opada. W zapachu chmiel i chemikalia. W smaku podobnie. Kolejny eksportowy lager ktorego nie da sie pic.

Light sweet, light dry bitter refreshing. Light body, thin texture, average to soft carbonation, short cereal finish, light herbal. Overall, a light pale poorly refreshing beer.

Lager acılığının baştan sona hissettiren, bittikten sonra damakta uzunca süre tadını unutmayacağınız bir bira.

mR_fr0g (8026) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2016
Desk beer. Pour very clear golden with a short lived white froth. Aroma is initially horrible skunky hops, adjunct, grassy, ittle sweet, some green apple. Flavour is composed of dry malts, adjunct corn, carbonic acid bite. Pretty flavourless. Palate is light and a bit abrasive carbonation, dry and thin in the finish. Meh.
