This beer is definately not anything to write home about. I am drinking a beer that has less than 100 calories per 12oz. serving. I do have expectations, but I'm not demanding anything exceptional . I just want a drinkable, light beer. This one doesn't conjure up too much from the taste department. It's kinda fitting the bill. Huh.
It actually poured fairly nice; a very pale yellow accompanied by a decent white, fluffy head. Good carbonation throughout. There are faint smells of fruity, skunky malt and there is a slightly dry, bitter finish, which isn't enough to substantiate a good finish. It's kinda "blah" on the ol' tongue. Nothing shocking. No grace. But, it functions on a small scale.
Personally, if I were to choose a light beer, I think I would go with Sam Adams Light. It seems to have more of an aroma and a better overall body...well, as much body as a light beer can have. But, I will drink the Amstel and enjoy it for what it is. Even if it isn't much.
