As lager, I really like it. Much more than some of the other light beers. Tastes great and isn't as filling as the others.

I will usually pick this up to serve at parties. I won't serve any of the big 3 light beers, this one at least has real beer pretensions (however limited), and swill drinkers won't complain that there's no "normal" beer if this is in a cooler on the back porch. Not horrible, not great, pretty much right down the middle with perhaps a bit stronger nose (mild skunk) than expected. Thin on the palate, straw color, and limited aftertaste. Amstel is also my preferred golf course beer; it’s available from the drinks cart at most courses, isn’t terrible, and you can drink 6 of them without losing your putting stroke.
