Sometimes you just have to review less wonderful beer.
Amstel light pours gold (pale) with a rapidly vanishing head and carbonation abound. The aroma unfortunately smells of soaking cabbage and straw, pungent in a bad way.
The flavor is slightly stronger than Perrier, but literally it tastes mostly like water. There aren't any flavor notes to speak of other than mild wheat and...tap water. The beer is like mineral water with slightly more alcohol.
Overall what's the point? Well...it is a light beer but giving it a modicum of a flavor profile might make this moderately worthwhile.

330 ml can served cold into a glass.
Appearance- fairly rich golden color, with a nice helping of two and a half fingers of head. This dissipates quickly however. Significant amount of bubbles in the see through beer.
Smell - slightly metallic, and other than that some mild adjunct aromas especially corn and nothing else to speak of. Fortunately nothing off putting either.
Taste- very bland, reminiscent of tonic water with a few adjuncts in there. Bland even by light beer standards. However nothing weird tasting that would give this an even lower score.
Mouthfeel - moderately high carbonation, dry finish in the mouth. Works well with the fizzy water flavor.
Overall - a little more flavor and this could be considered a pretty decent light beer, unfortunately this is extremely bland and water will quench the thirst better. Fortunately enough, there's nothing awful about it either meaning, it serves it's purpose well enough.
