bulldogops (1039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 5, 2013
500mL Can from the LCBO. 4.6%. Clear golden pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma is adjunct-laden, sweet malts. Hints of corn, grassiness, and a slight hop presence. Light bodied, crisp bubbly mouthfeel. Not much for the palate, just a plain, grainy macro lager.

Tap at Robinson’s. Belfast: Clear golden coloured brew with an well balanced taste, i like the big red "T". Drunk it with an "Ulster Fry".

Can. This is great if you need 10 beers and are on a limited buget. Otherwise steer clear.

mzaar (1508) - Varberg, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2013
Fat. Fruktansvärt tråkig öl. Nästan doftlös, inte mycket bättre i smaken. En viss maltsötma räddar upp det från ett totalt bottenbetyg.

probstblueribbon (2858) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2013
500 ml can from LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear golden with a fairly large off-white head. Aroma: Grain/cereal, quite tight, a touch of sulphur and maybe a wee hint ’o grassy hops. Palate: Medium body, moderate carbonation, fairly smooth. Flav.: Light grain/cereal, little else; dry with a sweet-ish feel and minimal bitterness, nothing much on the finish.

Dang, this is some bland shite.

(tap) goldgelbe färbing, klar filtriert, weisse schaumkrone. Aroma weich, leicht malzig, bisschen honig. Geschmach wässrig, leicht würzig und bitter. Im nachgeschmack etwas spicy.

Graham77 (228) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 6, 2013
440ml Can. Aroma of cereal. Taste of cereal and maybe some chemical/metal. Quite refreshing. Grew up on this so I still enjoy it up to a point.

unstablefable (224) - SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2013
On keg @ Simpsons, pours a clear lager golden with a one finger white head, aroma is cereals and not much else..metallic edge maybe. Taste is really not much at all tiny bitter but clean finish.

People may think it is blasphemous to rate this beer so highly, but perhaps growing up in Scotland has conditioned me to appreciate the lack of depth and chemical flavour of this lager. I don’t really care what other ’connoisseurs’ might say - sometimes a nice, fresh, crisp pint of tennents is the ultimate refreshment. I have had some pretty nasty smelling pints of tennents before, but as the most popular lager in the country, the high turnover means that the beer is nearly always fresh from the tap and goes down very smoothly. There maybe a stigma associated with tennents, but whatever more pretentious people might say, while I can appreciate good craft beer, I also appreciate tennents.
