erickok's rating

2.1
   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 7/20
erickok (5688) - Leuven, - JUN 15, 2012
Golden body with a white soapy head thats 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 doesnt say much. (33cl bottle)

sjogro (3330) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2017
Shared from can from Spar in train from Leiden to Den Haag after Leiden Winterbier festival. Massive thanks to Maakun. Clear pale golden and white head. Sweet mlts, metallic notes, light sweet and bitter. Under medium body. Watery aroma and feel. Low carbonation.

ThirstyBird (2756) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2017
OK, Large green bottle pours a golden yellow with a small off-white head. The smell is corn, damp cardboard. The taste is as it smells without anything positive to add. Carbonation is a bit course with a light body. I bought this beer to go with chili for dinner, Im afraid its not even up to that task. :(

zacgillbanks (4868) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2016
4.1% bottle of Amstel Bier from B&M, Team Valley, Gateshead. Pale straw coloured with a thin white head. It has a slight soapy and fruity flavour followed by a sugary sweet lemon and fruity finish. Very poor.
