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.

1.75/5  rDev -27.4%
look: 1.75 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 1.75

It poured golden yeal, light head, lots of carbonation, and some lacing. It had the taste of corn and metal, with hints of anything, was also watery and light bodied. It was refreshing, had no edge, and went down easy. It had no after to speak of and not many redeeming qualities. Good party beer I guess for all those hipster types out there.
