Best selling beer in the Netherlands *crying* such an average boring beer. Very popular at parties and festivals. I only drink Amstel if there isnt anything else.

Grumbo (1780) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle, source not noted, historic rating. Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma of grain, sweet malts, corn. Medium sweetness, light bitterness. Light body, average carbonation. Better than average Heineken lager.

Can whilst watching football. Yellow gold with a thin soapy head. Little aroma, flavour is minimal. Refreshing I guess

theSlipperyPen (276) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2016
Straw yellow, soapy head and a slight white sugar nose. In the mouth its bland lemon grass and a bit of malts. Not bad but theres no defining feature on which to pick this beer over any other mass produced lager.

Beerclubsa (143) - Strand, SOUTH AFRICA - OCT 11, 2016
330ml can. Pours perfectly clear golden with a loosely packed white head and surprisingly good retention. Smells of sweet corn and spicy/earthy hops. Palate has medium high carbonation and light body. Flavour is malty sweet with a low hop bitterness in the middle, and a dry, sweet corny finish which doesnt last long. Too much maize for me as with most mass produced lagers, but not bad.

Pours clear golden with thin white head. Nose is lightly malty. Aromas are malty and herbal hops. Average carbonation, light body. Abrupt body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear golden with little white head. Aroma is lots of noble hops, very clean, not bad. Taste has some butter above the average lager stuff. Less tartnesss than the average lager. Finish is the same. Ok.
