COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by an original recipe created by Hugh Tennent in 1885 and brewed using malted barley, water and hops in the heart of Glasgow. It’s about as local as export lagers get.

Refreshing typical pale lager with balanced bitterness. Steep discouraging price.

Marduk (3636) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 1, 2015
330ml bottle. Pale yellow color. Medium size, white head, stays. Malts and terrible hop exctract in aroma. Sweet, sugary, papery, hop extract, corn, cereal in taste. Bad. Never again!

FatPhil (10343) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 29, 2015
330ml bottle (Stockmann, Tallinn)
Outragious limey hop extract aroma, quite a turn-off. Shame, as they’re clearly trying to pretend that they care about hops. Ugh, a slickly bland creamy malt, something makes me gag just a little. Weak watery palate, but fitting carbonation. Finish does some extracty hop bitterness. Pretty poor lager, only the aroma was any good at all. Hops were so extracty, but I have to be a little bit charitable as I recognised the fact that they’re noble and citrussy. Almost certain overrate, but I was in a good mood after the last beer (not a tick, a homebrew).

jaghana (4494) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAR 20, 2015
Can 50cl, a clear yellow beer with medium head. Nose is on dry malt, wet paper touch and slightly oxydated like. Aroma is very low, watery, dusty hops, wet paper, again a poo fruit notes oxidated like, very boring and thin.

JaKeAFC (667) - ITALY - MAY 18, 2013
33cl bottle, 5%. Yellow color, standard white head. Lagery nose. Aroma is grainy, strawy hops. Taste is flat, metallic bitterness in the finish, body is light, carbonated. Simple lager, somewhat dull. Average green bottle stuff.

Dorqui (2127) - Brescia, ITALY - MAY 1, 2013
Bottled 0,33L. Golden yellow color, medium ehad resistance, nearly no bubbly presence. Malty and dried grassy and alcoholic nose. Poor taste, medium prickly body, a little watery with notes of dampen grains and hay. Excessive bitter perception for this style.

JohnRMurdoch (3690) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - FEB 21, 2013
330ml bottle from A Tutta Birra, Milan. This beer is brewed 3 miles from my home but this is the first time I have seen it. Amber yellow colour, big foamy head. Corn resin malt aroma. Biscuit corn & vanilla flavour. Quite smooth for a lager. Sweet aftertaste.

Can 500ml. Golden Color with white head that diminish quickly. Aroma of blended malt. Flavor is sweet, with very light bitterness. Short mouthfeel..
