Best drunk cold out of the tin, the taste of metal makes it seem somewhat better!

AtronSeige (1259) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - AUG 5, 2016
Aroma: Medium-light grainy, hay, sweet-corn. Light metallic (may be from can), sulfur, floral. Appearance: Brilliant, light gold body. Medium, white head. Fine bubbles, fair retention. Flavour: Medium-light grainy, light floral. Slightly sweet, light bitterness. Medium-dry finish with a bit of sweetness and carbonic sting. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Easy drinking, but with a sweeter finish than most pale lagers. Although the sweetness if not "bad", it is just slightly too high. I am sure this is a great beer for people who do not like bitter lagers. Carbonation is slightly too low. 440 ml can, poured. 2A. International Pale lager.

Erzengel (7755) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 29, 2016
*On tap in Dunlewy, Ireland as "Ice cold-version". Smooth and grainy brew. Not too deep with not much bitterness. Round and sessionable, but not very deep - especially not "ice-cold".

Cunningham (6948) - Halden, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2016
Plain average lager.
Golden color with an ok white head. Moderate intensity in the aroma. Medium body and an ok carbonation. Decent balance between sweetness and bitterness. Malty and mild herbal flavor.

Ye olde Tennents Lager, where to start... The first beer I ever tried and the lager I go for when there is no ales available in the pub I’m in. This stuff should probably be considered Scotland’s national drink. This is by no means a great beer but I have a nostalgic attachment. When it’s sunny outside and you find yourself in a West of Scotland beer garden nothing will quench your thirst quite like a pint of this. Cheep, cheerful and refreshing. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aroma is citrus, slight copper, bread. Taste is lemony, bread, tinny, quite watery. It may not be the best beer you’ll ever drink but I enjoy it and I will continue to enjoy it. Long live the Tinnints aka pish water
