Amstel Lager is one of the best-selling premium beers in South Africa. In 1870, our brewery was founded by two friends in Amsterdam. They brewed a new, Bavaria-style lager beer that became an instant favorite. Now, almost 150 years later, not only the Dutch, but people from all over the world know the excellent quality of Amstel. For almost 150 years, Amstel larger has brewed a unique beer for all those people and moments in life so valuable they should be savored and so good they must be shared.
The classic, golden Amstel Beer, with its very distinctive and mildly bitter taste, has over the years become well-known beyond the borders of its native country, making it one of the best selling premium beers in SA!
Amstel Light is an easy drinking lager style beer, with a fresh, slightly fruity aroma blended with a smooth malty flavour - delicately hopped and lightly carbonated to give a sparkling appearance and crisp finish. Amstel Light's unique flavour is developed by using a specialised cold filtration process that gently removes alcohol and at the same time concentrates the flavour of the body of the beer. The result is an outstanding full flavoured and refreshing beer containing only 2.5% alcohol. It is brewed in the tradition of the Amstel Brewery.
The beer itself is one of the stronger lagers in South Africa with a clean, refreshing taste. It has a spicy hoppiness complemented by lightly kilned malted barley. There are also subtle fruity notes in the aroma and taste, adding to the depth of the beer. A dense white head and straw-coloured body characterise it.
