OK guys, this may seem silly but here goes. In RSA I "discovered" Amstel Lager beer, not light. I loved it! I had it again in June in Zim, best part of that hunt! In fact I smuggled a six pack home in my luggage, long gone of course. Here in the states one may find Amstel Light, which sucks. Anyone here ever located a source of this fine beer? I have looked high and low on the net and NADA! Its my understanding that it may simply not be available to us here. Any ideas or knowledge on this highly important matter? Thanks!!
Ses, Maybe you can contact the new owners and see if they want to sell you some.
