After listening to the glowing praise bestowed upon it by Julietz80, I decided to try an Amstel Light. So, trusting her palate, I bought a single bottle, along with a six pack of “backup beer” in case the experiment didn’t pan out.
The decision was not made without overcoming a bit of trepidation. It’s a beer that labels itself of the “light” persuasion.
Overall, it’s not bad. Not something that I’d want to drink on a weekly basis, but it’s not horrible. The color is what throws me off. It just doesn’t look like beer. When I first poured it into the glass, I really had my doubts. It’s a very light amber color, and that’s all I’m going to say. Flavorwise, it’s crisp, and there’s a hint of sweetness to it, which disappears. There’s little to no aftertaste that I could detect, which is a little strange, at least for me.
On the whole, not a horrible experience. I’d drink it again without arm twisting.
