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.

Let me put it this way, I had a free bottle at a reception and dumped it. If I dump out a beer that I didnít pay for, you know there is a problem.

Similar to a typical american light lager like bud light or miller light - with an additional characteristic of more skunky bitterness. Unfortunately, it doesnít add to the expierence. Drinkable, but not pleasurable.

Possibly the worst experience Iíve had in a beer. Bought it because it always looked like a good beer, but boy was I wrong. Bitter, skuny, and I couldnít even finish it. Not for my tastes but hey, I like the cheap american standards.

Amstel Light is an odd beer for 2 reasons: 1- It was created soley for the American market. and 2- Although American íLightsí donít have any hop character, Heineken felt they needed to add some. In my opinion, the hop character that is there just doesnít work. Iíd much rather have a Bud Light, Miller Light or Coors Light.

Nothing too exciting. Why does this beer smell so bad? Itís a light beer, so I couldnít expect too much, really. 95 calories! A typically bland and unremarkable flavor.

Doesnít have the bite of heineken, but the taste is kind of bland and run of the mill.
