2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
3/17/15 (Can) - Misty yellow cloudy body, minimal thin white head. Aroma mostly lemon and very sweet. Taste did not resemble beer - more like lemon lime soda. Tasted OK but I expected more of a standard beer with lemon taste and smell. Felt like drinking a pop. If you are looking for a light ABV lemon pop, this is for you. Was pleasant drinking for what it is, but if you are looking for a beer with a taste which contains lemon, go elsewhere.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
The big breweries of the Low Countries are apparently attempting to popularize the old German Radler concept nowadays, which I am not a fan of to say the least - and the name Amstel does not sound promising either. Thin, off-white, loose and unstable head, cloudy lemon yellow colour with vague greenish hue and clear fizz. Expected lemonade aroma, ascorbic acid, tons of white sugar, lemon extract, a weakly chalky touch, and perhaps a very faint suggestion of grains underneath, but too weak to be described in more detail. Sugary sweet onset paired with the same artificial lemonade-like citrus effect you’ll find in a can of Fanta, but with slightly less fizzy carbonation; ascorbic acid abounding, again that very weak suggestion of grains underneath and a faint, but notable hint of bitterishness in the finish, I suppose an echo of the hops combined with something vaguely chemical; needless to say, the sugary sweetness sticks to the teeth, mouth and throat. Quite okay as a soda pop, like the other mass-produced Radlers, and that’s about it. Not the most off-putting ’beer’ I ever had, just not suitable for anyone looking for a refreshing beer. Very suitable for anyone looking for a refreshing lemonade, though.

Cloudy pale yellow pour with a disappearing white head. Aroma is lemon and a little skunked. Taste is refreshing in a way. You can taste the beer and the lemon. Lemon tastes natural.

Bottle. This is a cloudy yellow radler. On the sweet side, and not as good as Stiegl, but solid and enjoyable in its own right. Lots of lemon.
