When you want a light lager (yes, those times do happen), Amstel is an excellent choice. A nicely colored light lager, it goes down like most every other light lager, with little no aftertaste. If you are looking for a light lager, this is probably one of your best options.
I think this beer gets a bad rap because of the pricing. I am assuming it is because it is not a domestic, so it is usually priced in the region of far better craft European or domestic beers.
A quality beer....as long as someone else pays for it. If your paying and want a light beer, just go American and buy twice as much beer for the same price.

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.
