3.6/5 rDev +49.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Very pale yellow with not much carbonation or foam for me. It's hard to say I'm impressed but it's not gross.
Smell: A bit of a sweet breadlike smell that I've not experienced in many other beers. Overall, boring.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Nothing too memorable either way, except for the same sweetness in the smell. Watery as it warms. I kind of like this but there aren't distinct flavors. No hops and only a bit of malt.
Drinkability: Amstel is definitely one of the more drinkable European beers, along with fellow Dutch beer Heineken. You could drink a volume of this stuff that would equal a 40oz of say...King Cobra...and not feel a thing.
Overall: I like Amstel better than Heineken, although I feel like most people view oppositely. Either way, this beer is definitely decent, not too exciting, and has no bad qualities.
Serving type: bottle
