Its everywhere in Curaçao and its pretty bad. I woyld prefer tha other offerings. The Dutchers have pretty bad pallets and choice in beer. Very low energy.

Crispy, fresh with a certain je ne sais quoi. A very solid beer in my honest opinion which you can drink either with food or if you are having a few bevvys with the girls.

From bottle and on tap, on numerous occasions. An average lager. Very average!............................................. Once a half-decent lager for the Amsterdam region, later chosen as Heineken's downmarket brand.

A very good German style pint. Subtle but not at all watery. Very easy drinkable, frankly it has everything a pint needs. It's refreshing, middle of the road without strong characteristics and has a nice aftertaste. It could be the blueprint of pints, but boy do i hate their advertising! Otherwise i'd give it a perfect score!

Drank it straight from a bottle, which makes a lot of difference if you ask me.

From a can while on a boat on the Amstel River.

A rather wretched nose with a nauseating grainy note of cooked cereal, corn and a little honey. The palate is worse, with an undrinkable grainy flavor of cooked corn, candy and some cereal. Wretched finish too. Avoid.

Cerveza con una buena cabeza espumosa. Es ligera y de una carbonatación media. En aroma se percibe la malta, granos y un poco de limón. En boca es refrescante, ligeramente amarga con un dejo de cebada. Para una cerveza industrial de su precio es una buena opción.

This is a 25cL bottle of Amstel's "AMSTEL BIER", labeled PIlsener, as packaged for the Dutch Caribbean market, and dated Mrt-19. Served in a tapered tumbler the beer is pale yellow, clear, and forms nearly no head. Aroma has a bit of biscuit malt and skunk. Flavor is mild, with a neutral level of carbonation for the style and very little flavor to bite on the palate. Mostly, but not entirely, inoffensive. And when served absolutely ice cold, it's positively enjoyable after a few hours of snorkeling under the tropical sun. But, this is beeradvocate, not refreshmentadvocate, and as a beer, this just isn't very tasty.

A 440ml can with a BB of Aug 2018. Brewed in the UK under contract; ABV is stated as 4.1%. Purchased a while back from Morrisons. The label states that this is brewed according to the Amstel tradition.

A: Poured into a straight pint glass. A crystal-clear golden colour with light carbonation and some vague floating sediment. Forms a decent head of creamy white foam that lasts for a moment or two before collapsing and dissipating.

S: Aroma of faint pale malt with whispers of earthiness and stewed leaves. Almost non-existent. Not flawed but not really beer either....

T: Tastes of very light malt with faint notes of grain, stewed leaves/veg and a twinge of earthiness. Very dry, with little bitterness to speak of. Underwhelming would be an understatement.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with prickly carbonation and thin body for the style. Mildly astringent. Aftertaste of harsh stewed leaves and faint malt.

O: A subpar industrial lager. Unimpressive on all fronts. Average looks and body, while the aroma and flavour are bland yet punctuated by subtle off-notes. Barely worth the effort of drinking - give it a miss.

Deep gold, no head, no fizzle. Hops, grainy. Bitter-sweet. Full.
