Can of 500 ml.
It poured a deep golden coloured beer with one finger head with good retention. Great activity in the glass with bubbles rising constantly on the top.
Malts on the aroma and hops but only faint. Smell from the high ABV is not apparent.
Bitter taste, hoppy. Alcohol is only a bit traceable.
Thick on the body and dry. Average carbonation.
Contrary to other strong beers out there, this one has a soft taste and the high alcohol is very well hidden, thus making this beer highly drinkable, even on a hot summer day.

Amstel strong. 7.5%. 0.5 l can.

Honey coloured, with a finger of fluffy head. Mild carbonation in this clear pilsner.
Smell is very ok: grassy hops and malts. Especially the hops are decent.
Taste is a bit ordinary, it doesn't deliver upon the smell: it's very malty and sugary sweet. It does have a reasonable hop flavour: grassy and peppery.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied: the alcohol is well hidden, making it ok drinkable too.

This strong lager is actually not bad at all.
