Well, if the ordinary Amstel isn't bland enough for you... God bless!....... muzzlehatch (4969) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 15, 2002
Another beer that should only be drunk when free; I mean, I'm desperate sometimes, but I'm never THAT desperate. mattduling (64) - Fairmont, West Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2002
Holy shit this is bad beer, tastes like Coors light!........................ bluemeow76 (693) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUN 12, 2002
watery blah. Still better than Bud light - as is just about everything...... Rib Eye (148) - USA - JUN 10, 2002
This is basically Heineken light; skunky and bitter. But because everything is less intense than the incredibly offensive Heiny, Amstel is actually slightly better. It is very light bodied and easy drinking. For dog piss.

Let me put it this way, I had a free bottle at a reception and dumped it. If I dump out a beer that I didn't pay for, you know there is a problem. IneedAbuheer (69) - Ingleside, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2002
Similar to a typical american light lager like bud light or miller light - with an additional characteristic of more skunky bitterness. Unfortunately, it doesn't add to the expierence. Drinkable, but not pleasurable. adamcbowman (57) - Bowling Green, Ohio, USA - JUN 6, 2002
Possibly the worst experience I've had in a beer. Bought it because it always looked like a good beer, but boy was I wrong. Bitter, skuny, and I couldn't even finish it. Not for my tastes but hey, I like the cheap american standards. NeroFiddled (105) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2002
Amstel Light is an odd beer for 2 reasons: 1- It was created soley for the American market. and 2- Although American 'Lights' don't have any hop character, Heineken felt they needed to add some. In my opinion, the hop character that is there just doesn't work. I'd much rather have a Bud Light, Miller Light or Coors Light. austinpowers (2831) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 3, 2002
Nothing too exciting. Why does this beer smell so bad? It's a light beer, so I couldn't expect too much, really. 95 calories! A typically bland and unremarkable flavor.
