I rated this beer against other light lagers. It is good lager !
Appearance: Yellow straw beer
Smell is good compared to an AA Lager. It was grassy hoppys and grains smell to it.
Taste;: It taste of grains and gassy notes to it, unlike other light beer it does have some beer taste. Amstel basically taste like light of version to a European light lager.
Mouthfeel: Light with moderate carbonation
Overall: It enjoyed this beer. It beats out 95 percent of light lagers out there. It beats out bud light , coors light , natural light but the price is to high for my pocket book . I will drank Amstel Light in the future from a break from the norm but I will stick Miller Light from now.

Out of all the light beers Amstel does a great job of providing the calorie concious drinker a great alternative.
Unlike many light beers that try to emulate their full-calorie counterparts amstel does not try to be a "full" beer.
There is a pleasant initial aroma followed by a mellow taste and decent mouth-feel for a light.
This beer does not offend(as many lights do) and instead provides an unassuming gardening beer.

Bright yellow straw color with a decent to low white head and decent-good carbonation. Light hop, light adjunct, and light malt aroma and flavor ... see a theme here ? :-) Tastes like a baby Heineken. LIght-medium bodied and fairly smooth with a decent finish for a lighter beer.
Call me a choad but I reviewed this for what it was ... a light beer... A very nice low calorie alternative to the light American varieties... only drawback is $.

I am very surprised to see the highly negative reviews for Amstel Light. As usual, the BA crowd likes to tear down a beer just because it is a light beer. It is said, over and again, that a beer should be reviewed based on its category. Unfortunately, a lot of people don't do that. Amstel Light has a nice full flavor for a light beer with an awesome mouthfeel.
