Amstel Light

No matter what type of BA you are; a hop head, malt lover, stout or lager lover, etc. once you have established the fact that you like beer that tastes like “something”, then it’s hardly surprising that when you taste a beer that tastes like “nothing” it becomes pretty much good for nothing except drain pour.

My problem with this stuff (and others like it) is that apart form the appearance, it has no relation to beer whatsoever. It’s tasteless, thin in the mouth and comes with zero character.

The pour does look like a quality pilsner or its equivalent, but the lacklustre frothy head gives it away. The smell is of stale beer, the taste? What taste? The one redeeming feature is that if it were ice-cold, one bottle could act as a thirst quencher – much like water, that in the case of Amstel Light, I think I would prefer.
