It is very confusing with big international breweries as Amstel(Heineken group). This Amstel beer is brewed in Serbia,but also in Heineken breweries in Greece and Russia,but,not in Holland i think. So i put it as part of Novi Sad brewery products..
Also it's called pilsner,but it is more EPL for sure.

A-Dark yellow,almost amber color,very few bubbles,lasting few minutes. Nice 3 fingers white foam lasting about minute.

S-Malty with little citrus notes.

T/M-A bit carbonated with first touch,drinkable,low bitter aftertaste. Also some citrus.

O-Nice can design.

500ml bottle (BBD of Nov 2013): brewed by the Heineken owned Athenian Brewery, obtained from the small supermarket opposite our holiday studio in Ornos on the island of Mykonos. Opened on the terrace of said studio on 13 May 2013.

Why did I pay more for this than the standard Greek brewed Amstel? I must be a mug!

Typical lager/pilsner look: golden, bright and clear, usual fast fading thin white head.

Grainy and dry taste, very little aroma of anything.

Refreshing and clean, but nothing to get excited about, a bog standard lager/pilsner in almost all aspects: ideal when on a hot holiday, otherwise don't bother (not that you are going to come across a Greek brewed Amstel very often elsewhere).

Green 33cl bottle.

Appearance: pale golden. Builds a head that dissipates quickly. Almost no lacing.

Smell: a bit malty and raw grassy aroma. Like most mediocre beers of this style.

Taste: malty, some grains and ugly bitterness.

Mouthfeel: no carbonation, no good taste, no good at all, like most mediocre beers of this style.

Overall: I've tried this because someone put it in the fridge. I'll say it again, it's like most mediocre beers of the same style, lacking that something that could make it remarkable. If you can't finish a 33cl bottle in an hour, it's because the beer sucks.

A- Bright crystal golden colored beer with an abundant white foam that remains atop for a while.

S- Malty sweet aroma,no hops presents.

T- Very malty, very clean taste with a subtle sweetness.Bitterness is very low overpowered by a strong maltiness

M- Medium bodied , very smooth in my opinion.

O- Good beer, nothing to avoid in a hot summer day.
