It has been a short while since there has been a beer review, and what better time to talk about beer than on a Wednesday.
In today’s installment of team van go’s Beer Review, we look at another one of the Amsterdam Brewery’s lineup, the 3 Speed Lager.
The Amsterdam 3 Speed is on the lighter side of the scale, with an ABV of only 4.2%. That being said, it does still have a bit of flavour accompanied with it. I have personally had this beer before, and enjoyed the lightness of it, more of a refreshing summer beer.
As you can tell the beer was drank straight from the can, so no appearance other than the nice can with a picture of a bike on it… But if you did pour it, it would have a light golden colouring to it.
Tasting it, well it is a lager, and thus has a lot of the lager flavours accompanied with it. There was no real hit of hops at all, so for folks not wanting the stronger hop flavour this is a beer right up your alley! One note on this beer though, it was very crisp. There was no hops hit at the end, just a hit of beer then really nothing, no bitterness or anything along those lines.
The overall experience with the 3-Speed was good. It is a good all around beer to drink. Not too strong, and at the lower alcohol it fits in for a good pint or two on the patio or after a ride.
Rating: 3.13 out of 5
Was the beer hoppy? Nope, no real hops at all
Would you buy the beer again? Yup I would, would I switch soley to this beer, no, but a good treat once and a while for sure.
Would you recommend it to a friend? I would, but a friend that is not all about hoppy beers.
