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 iíd 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, íCan it get any better than thisí? Drinking it again from the objectivity of my New Jersey tasting room (my bedroom), I think otherwise. It can get better. But Tennentís is still quite nice. A mild, unbitter lager for drinking in quantity.

I tried it when I was over in England in March. Liked it, even though the alcohol content tend to cut into the enjoyment. Light color and little head. Very little aroma. It could have been lower.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 8, 2002
Not the best aroma , can I say bad ? Typical skunkines sample . Need some more of gas , got some nice small bublles (some bigger too) but foam is very weak . A bit botter but not much else . I begin to wonder if is alc. free ... by the way my bottle was 5 %.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2002
Nothing really exciting. Run of the mill lager, with nothing all that exciting to make me want to buy more over American lagers. Too skunky for my tastes, but I should have seen that coming with the green bottle.

Slight skunkiness in aroma. Golden fluffy head at first....Great taste of bitterness, creamy. Fairly carbonated. Average.

casper31399 (7) - memphis, Tennessee, USA - MAY 18, 2002 does not count
ho hum. brits should stick to their ales, but mass produced scottish lager is still better than american counterparts. But then again i can afford to get drunk off of the american stuff.
