erickok (6036) - Leuven, - JUN 15, 2012
Golden body with a white soapy head that’s not bad at all. Very grainy, but agreeably also a slight classic hop aroma. Very moderate. Drinks very easy, light sweet overall. Of course similar to the Amstel pils, but a bit sweeter. As I understand this is only at 4% so it gets taxed less, not because of taste or something. If anything I prefer this over the normal version; although that doesn’t say much. (33cl bottle)

Home. 50 cl can. BB feb 2018. A flossy whit foam layer on a clear yellow beer. Hardly no aroma, only some malt. Taste is a neutral pils with some hop bitter in aftertaste. Body thin - medium. Good drinkable, but nothing special.

I don't (and won't) get it, why Amstel (and other Dutch Lager) are enjoying such a popularity. Drinkable, ok, when you're thirsty, but otherwise watery in taste with so many better beers available everywhere. Not mine.

25/VII/17 - 50cl can from a Dutch supermarket (either AH or Jumbo) @ holidays - BB: XII/2017 (2017-1120)

Clear blond beer, creamy irregular white head, pretty stable, little adhesive. Aroma: bit sweetish, malty, not much smell anyway. MF: soft carbon, medium to light body. Taste: pretty bitter start, bit metallic, some almonds, bit sweet, fruity touch. Aftertaste: soft bitterness, malty, sweet, grains.

Nothing WRONG with Amstel. Just nothing realy RIGHT with it either. Cereal aromas. Pretty much just malt flavors as well. Appearance is really nice though. Good head. Nice lacing.

Acaro (308) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 23, 2017
Aroma: Cereals. Appearance: Gold color with clear sparkling liquid and minimal white head. Taste: Light bitterness with a very light sweet touch. Palate: Light body with thin texture and average carbonation. Short soft bitter finish. Overall: Plain, no memories. Very soft features.

Zlotta (3817) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUL 14, 2017
Sampled from 0.5 l can from ’AH XL’ (Roermond), best before November 2017. Clear, golden yellow with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sweetish aroma of grains and some straw. Slightly sweetish, moderately bitter, a little watery taste of grains and some straw, followed by a short, moderately bitter, slightly grassy and a bit dry finish. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Inoffensive.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2017 Ruikt naar pale lager oftwel pils bier, Geen idee wat de strategie achter dit lichtere biertje is. Gezien de tedens zie je dit fenomeen wel meer. We maken van ons lager biertje een lichtere variant. Maarrre ze vergeten dat als je daar vier van drinkt kan je nog steeds niet auto rijden. Maar goed ruikt minder als Amstel heeft een lichtere kleur als Amstel en minder koolzuur als Amstel smaakt minder naar mout, en vooral is gewoon over de hele lijn minder lekker en dat geld dubbel voor de nasmaak. Moet zeggen het is iig niet wateriger als Amstel. Al zijn de meningen verdeelt. Maar zou dit biertje echt nooit meer bestellen. Als ik auto rijden moet drink ik cola en als ik zwaar genieten wil ga ik wel voor een imperial stout of IPA. Maar objectief gezien is dit biertje gewoon beuh....

Well, well. An unrated alias from my local ’Shop N’ Drive’ dogshit forecourt. £2 for a 650ml bottle. Just wanted a hit of something brainless and cold to sup watching QT which isn’t even on. And my does this tick the brainless box. About as close to wet air as you can get with distant slithers of corn, white rice, adhesive, minerals and white toast. All wrung from all-malt apparently. Sniffs of lemon sponge, rubber and cereal. Oddly still and mucilaginous. NA wholemeal notes. Gone like it was never even there. What’s the point?

blackisle (2814) - Amsterdam IJburg, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2017

Clear pale golden, good frothy white head, good retention and lacing; aroma sweet malt, grain, corn, hay; taste medium sweet and light bitter, malty, grainy, metallic; bit more bitter in the aftertaste, light peppery note, some cardboard; light body, watery texture, average carbonation; easy to drink.
