12 oz. bottle in a Boags Premium pilsner glass barnacles of bubbles cling to the bottom third of the glass after an overly effervescent head dissipates for how many Amstels Ive had, Ive never sessioned it before (I hear some snickers from my serious drinking friends) still, here goes the tint is urine yellow the aroma is unmistakable Northern European mass production, although some slivers of nostalgia are embedded in that smell and then, the tin-swift rush through the mouth. No palate to speak of. The consolationand insultof this lager is simply that it cries for some sort of bar food to interact with. Like ketchup, this beer shouldnt be enjoyed alone oh well

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.
