Tastes just as bad as it smells, nasty... It is very bitter and not a good bitter, almost a sour bitter. Perhaps I got a bad batch, but man this stuff was bad. Kind of reminds me of the Czech Budweiser...

Just a typical Euro Lager - nothing to get too excited about. Smooth finish - strong pour with a thick head.

Definitely not Scotland’s best. A weak brew to say the least. Has the appearance and flavor of an American macrobrew.

This lager didn’t do anything for me. The flavor was boring.

The budwieser of scotland? Oh wait, they’re mainstream stuff doesn’t taste like shit. This was ok. But don’t go to Scotland just to drink one.

Yet another nondescript lager. This is the kind of beer that a slick looking guy buys to try to impress the big-haired blonde woman down the bar from him because of the ’fancy’ name.

Slightly skunked - not much else in aroma. Gold with large head. Not skunky in flavor, thankfully. Snappy malt character and lightly hopped. Decent, clean lager.

Almost sweeter than it is bitter. Faily good but i’d suggest leaving sheep intestine eating to the scots and brewing to the English and Irish.

Some bitterness but most of all a lot of blandness!

When I was in St. Martin in the Caribbean, this was about $1.00 each from a hut on the beach and drinking it, I thought, ’Can it get any better than this’? Drinking it again from the objectivity of my New Jersey tasting room (my bedroom), I think otherwise. It can get better. But Tennent’s is still quite nice. A mild, unbitter lager for drinking in quantity.
