krisfleet (130) - Sharon, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2003
Not nearly as good as the tennents scotch ale. This reminds me too much of a cheap domestic american standard. Flavor is skunky, and aftertaste resembles watery bud light. Not only was I unimpressed, I was disgusted at this speciman.

OOKPIKABLE (118) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2014
Pours light yellow with a bit of white head. Aroma of malt and maybe corn. Tastes watery, of the same, but actually better than expected.

RhetoricalAns (368) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2014
Draft. Yellow pour with a thin fizzy head that doesn’t last. Aroma and taste are both of grainy malt. A little bitter at the end but no flavors of note there. Farily thin body, fizzy carbonation.

Una pale lager allo stesso livello della sorella strong. Molto commerciale e industriale

Tarosama (57) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2014
Pint at Abbotsford in Edinburgh. I always try to drink Tennant when I visit Scotland. After 60 miles of cycling, this beer tasted really good. Cold and Fizzy. Nothing really special, everyday cheap lager.

Tap at archerfield golf club, scotland. Clear golden color, white head. Aroma is malty. Taste is malts and smooth mouthfeel. Hint of fruits and hops.

Why all the hate for this beer? Oh right. This is kind of like the Aerosmith of beer to me: I know it sucks but I liked it when I was young and didn’t know any better, so I’ll always have fond memories, and I still like to go back and sample it from time to time. So, while I may be a bit biased by fond memories of drinking this in Scotland a decade ago, I still feel like this stuff goes down okay. Nothing interesting flavour-wise. Sweet, grainy malt. A bit of ambiguous dryness on the finish. It’s drinkable, without being remotely distinct.

Osprey87 (2028) - WALES - AUG 10, 2014
Can, 4%. Dark amber, sparkling, small white head. Aroma is not really worth writing about. Body is medium with a touch of carbonation. Taste is malty, tonic water, light bitterness. It’s an inoffensive, well judged macro. Not bad at €1 for 500ml.

osu97gp (663) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Pours a clear pale yellow with a large white head. Aroma of sweet malt and light grain. Flavor is basically lightly beer flavored water with a hint of sweetness.

gunnar (5665) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2014
Keg at the Busta House Hotel, Shetland. Pours clear straw coloured with a small fast disappearing white head. Faint sweet grainy aroma. Taste is light bitter and dry, with a watery mouthfeel, not all bad, but close.
