imdownthepub (10625) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2004
Canned. Golden coloured with fizzed head. Raw alcohol notes as though it was added back and cheap ingredients giving a nasty thin brew, Never again.

faroeviking (10288) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 21, 2007
Can. Golden colour with a small rather short lasting white bubbly head. Aroma of malt and grains, bit of hoppiness. Flavour is malty, bit sweet, grainy with a bit of a bittersweet finish.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2008
Golden with a rather small head. The aroma has notes of malt and some fruity hops - but not much. The flavour is smooth with a light sweetness, notes of malt and hints of fruity hops. Harmless and uncomplicated - and thatís about it!

pretty crap beer, couldnít finish the bottle, to dry and a bit pissy.

Sigmund (5307) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 16, 2002
An ordinary lager, easily drinkable without too much of anything. However, I wonít buy it again of two reasons: a) In Norway, the price is twice that of domestic lagers / pilsener, while the beer isnít that much better (well, itís 0,3 - 0,5% stronger). b): When in Scotland, I will most certainly prefer a good Scottish ale to any lager!

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2002
This lager is almost Yuck! but not quite. Malty aroma. Golden colour, good lace. Light bitter, light sweet, malty. Very light bodied.

rauchbier (3633) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2005
Bottle, from Rhythm & Booze, Cleethorpes.Label reads Tennentís 1885. Gold, thin but lasting white head and moderate condition. Barely discernable malt in the nose, low grain in the mouth with a touch of hop bitterness. Finish is quite dry with a chalky bitter note lingering.

hayduke (3464) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 3, 2010
Draft at Holiday Inn Express. Poured a clear gold with small white head and minimal lacing. Nose of light malts and floral hops. Light body. Flavor is light malts but not a lot of flavor here. Not much finish. Tastes like a macro lager.
