    Amstel Light

    Lager, Amsterdam. although describing itself as "Inspired, enlightened, free of inhibition, and full of life," Somehow reminded me of our old-time domestic brews like Schlitz, Miller. When I was a kid before we began importing much really good stuff I was appalled at US, our palates. Apparently however I wasn't entirely alone

    Typical observations: Dry, bland, flavorless

    Agreed RE: seltzer-y, @maltyapples. If I'm in a pinch, i'll take a Heineken or Amstel Light if I must.... but i'd never reach for one voluntarily. Too many better beers out there with far fuller flavor profiles...
