The Amstel beer is brewed as a dedication to a great friendship that once was in Amsterdam. The beer was named after Amstel River, which earlier then served as a refrigerant.
It is clear, pale golden with a thin white head and light lacing. On the nose, Amstel is lightly grassy with white banquette crust malt and faint citrus zest, apples, and pears. The taste is light-bodied, white bread crust and hints of unripe pear with mild, earthy grassy hops and a faint note of cigarette tobacco.
Nothing says cheers to friendship better than raising two glasses of clear, pale golden brew, lightly clinging them to the true spirit of its founding.
