Amstel Light is bottom-fermented, using a highly intensive fermentation process. It made from the finest malted barley, carefully chosen hops, yeast, and water. Amstel Light contains fewer calories than a regular beer because it contains fewer carbohydrates. The use of sugars (glucose syrup) during our fermentation process, as well as malted barley, ensures that less residual carbs are in our final product. 95 Calories Never Tasted So Good!
