Absolutely terrible, skunky, piss-clear, bad aftertaste. I canít believe that people drink this when there are so many good beers out there...

I am not much into light beers. I found this beer to be better than Heineken, which I am not a fan of due in large part to the skunky smell. That smell isnít as prevelant in this beer which makes it easier to drink. Typical light straw color and not much in aroma outside the aforementioned skunk. Would still tend to look for a different light beer than this one, however

Nice color, that it is very light and weak, very bland, maybe allright for those who like bud light.

Yuck. I think I have finally found a answer to the Budweiser question íWhat can possibly be worse than this?í. It is íThis flavor, and at an import price to boot.í

Another beer that should only be drunk when free; I mean, Iím desperate sometimes, but Iím never THAT desperate.

watery blah. Still better than Bud light - as is just about everything.

This is basically Heineken light; skunky and bitter. But because everything is less intense than the incredibly offensive Heiny, Amstel is actually slightly better. It is very light bodied and easy drinking. For dog piss.
