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.

Theydon_Bois (7955) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Can on BA117, 8.25 LHR - JFK, 23/11/13. Clear golden with a moderate off white covering, vigorous carbonation presents itself ni the glass. Nose is corn, cereals, light citrus, paper, grain. Taste comprises cereals, raw bread dough, grass, corn, grain. Medium bodied, prickly carbonation, dry finish with a hint of bitterness. Bland pale lager mediocrity.

bergstaden (1190) - Røros, NORWAY - NOV 17, 2013
" enjoyed " somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean as this was the only option - here goes - Pale golden with a white head - Thin malt aroma - Thin malt body that lacks in bitterness - Short thin finish - This was utterly boring

kidobutai (309) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Nice smooth drink. Short-lasting buy tall head. Poured into a tall glass, and between the color and the bubbles, it looked like champagne. Taste reminds me of a belgian, somewhat nondescript.

Valfar (78) - San Miguel, EL SALVADOR - OCT 25, 2013
On a hot day, on a BBQ party, a trip to the beach, Amstel Light is a nice option. One of the smoothest beers, it has a firm aroma, body and color. Delicious til the last drop.

Beerman6686 (4239) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2013
This pouired a very pale straw yellow with a white head. Aroma was pretty much all skunk and nothing else. Flavor was skunk, corn, and grass. Not good.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1666) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 25, 2013
On a flight, it poured a fizzy yellow gold. Just a regular lager, it is ok. Nothing special. Basic lager aroma & taste...

visionthing (2625) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 10, 2013
33cl from Carrefour. Clear pale golden with a white head. Weak aroma of grain, fruits and hints of citrus. Moderate sweet, lightly grainy with hints of citrus and some acidity. Not much bitterness. Very watery and weak in flavour, slightly strange and dry

bartlebier (1560) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - SEP 10, 2013
33cl can on AA flight from Chicago to Berlin - the only alternative to Heineken and more tomato juice proved to be not too bad for a light beer. Light on taste and palate, yes, but a feat for Amstel to have left some residual hop notes in and filtered out all the malt off-tastes from regular Amstel nevertheless!
