It pours to a straw like gold body with a nice white head and adequate lace. It has a fruity and strong malt aroma. The flavor is about the same as the aroma but with a bit of a hop bite at the end. For the most part there it is sweet with some mild yeast spice. The mouthfeel is medium and just a little bit slick.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle of 300 ml at home, poured into a standard type of glass.
Very deep golden yellow colour, with a two fingers of soapy head, quickly dissipating. Activity in the glass is minimal. Light lacing left behind.
Aroma is of roasted malts and very slighty of hops.
The roasted malts are also to be found on the taste, making this beer more sweet than bitter, although some bitterness lingers on the aftertaste. The alcohol of 7% is very well hidden.
On the body is medium thick and is highly carbonated. Alcohol gives a warming feeling which becomes stronger once the beer has warmed up itself. Dry on the palate.
Overall a good beer, maybe it would be even better in the winter. I consider it to be the "premium"sister of Amstel Sterk (Strong) 7,5%.

Amstel Gold is the beer that gives name to the biggest cycling event in the Netherlands. Amstel is one of the big brands here.

Clear golden colour, but a disappointing thin fizzing head.
It's First scent from the bottle is banana, but that somehow disappears, leaving the maltyness and yeast of a common lager. The hops are there, but not too pronounced. It's a bit sweet, and after the slight hints of spice and banana have subsided, it leaves with a bit of alcoholburn.

Overall the brew is ok, but a bit boring.

Crystal clear sunshine gold, lots of fizzy carbonation adding to a nice white head. Good lacing.

Sugary cane and Belgium yeast in the aroma. Some spices and coriander fill the taste profile, a nice sipping 7% brew. I could go for more that one easily, a decent brew, not overpowering at any aspect.

Another fresh brew, thanks to my great son, “studying” overseas in Amsterdam. I was brought this for the unique chance to enjoy.

I sampled this beer in Amsterdam at a bar called In de Wildeman. This beer is deep gold in color and a hearty maltiness. Excellent head retention and lace. Did not notice a great amount of hop aroma or flavor. Interesting beer to say the least, but I did not care for it too much. Sort of like drinking a very heavy Heineken.
