Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 76: Amstel Lager

And now, Holland.

Amstel Lager

Looks very pale in the bottle. Looks very pale in the glass. It's very fizzy and has a bubbly head that fades away slowly.

First sip: Very slight malt, slightly more hops. Creamy mouth-feel, slightly tingly on the tongue.

Well, it's certainly a Eurolager so I didn't expect much, and this beer delivers what I expected. It would be a good beer on a really hot day. I'm sure there is a Dutch equivalent of bogans (beogjans?), and this is what they drink
