COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A special light beer containing only 3.5% alcohol and approximately 35% fewer calories than regular lager beer. But every bit as thirst-quenching and refreshing.

I can’t believe that this beer has 50 fewer calories than a can of coke. Vastly better than American light beers, the only ’light’ I can think of that actually has a hop flavor. Not my favorite beer in the world by a longshot, but there are situations where this beer is perfect.

This beer pours with a bright golden color, a moderate amount of carbonation, and produces a light, white-colored foam head that dissipates very quickly. Good hop character in the nose and flavor, and this beer finishes crisp, clean, and with little bitterness. Although it is a fairly thin and almost watery beer (too my tastes), it is quite satisfying and respectable.

It smells like beer but any similarity ends there

Well at least it smelled like beer. The nice hue and aroma give a false sense that you might be in for a surprise but , alas, with the first sip, you are reminded it’s still a light beer. And what’s with the 10 oz bottles? Drinkable....but barely. Not impressed.

Not worth the price and very light, but I do enjoy the taste and I get one at the bar every now and then.

I usually get this beer at tailgate parties so it comes free. It has a better flavor than most lights, but not typically a first choice of mine.

Re-rate (3/18/02): A very average beer, but good as far as light beers go. Some light malt taste is there, albeit very light and there are some discernable hops on the finish. Very drinkable, but for the same amount of money, you can buy so much better. The knock on all light beers is that they lack taste. Does Amstel Light lack taste too? No, its pretty good. A straightforward refreshing light beer but nothing to write home about and certainly nothing to justify its higher import price.

A little light for my taste. Decent taste, but too watered down. Nothing I’d buy twice, but worth a try, I suppose.
