3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 3/31/2015. Pours slightly hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, cracker, lightly toasted bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Okay aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with very poor strength. Taste of lemon, cracker, lightly toasted bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, bread, light honey, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Pretty clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes in the aroma and flavor. Medium carbonation and light-medium bady; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a solid pale lager style. All around good balance and robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

From bottle - actually like it - more of a rounder mouthfeel than Tennents Lager and perfectly chuggable

can. 5%. Poured clear liquid gold with a large white head. Grainy hay aroma. Mouthfeel is carbonated, light and slightly dry. Kinda plain grainy-macro start but has a nice bready malt flavour with a honey sweetness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. A bright white head tops a medium gold colored body. This has a grainy and meaty nose with some pear hints. This tastes fairly dry like hay with some raw grain. There is also some bread crust. Actually this is interesting with just enough going on to keep it drinkable. Pleasant and clean.

Light Yellow, Good Head, Some Lacing. Sweet Aroma. Bubbly and Sweet are the characteristics that separate it from the rest of lagers. Average Body and Refreshing. Pretty Decent.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is sweetish/grainy malts, beery and a hint of a chemical/off element. The flavor is mildly sweet malts, fruit/cider and a mildly tart finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml can. 5% abv on the label. Clear gold pour. White head with surprisingly nice clingy foam. Nose has grains and straw. Taste has some sweetness at the start, grain and bread notes and some light grass at the end. Light body, well carbonated. Overall, not a bad macro pale lager, drinkable and refreshing with no real off flavours.

Wer in Schottland "Tennents Lager" trinkt wird eher abschätzig belächelt. Dort trink man lieber ein "Special"; ein dunkles Lager mit fruchtigem Einschlag. An Tennents gibt es für mich trotzdem etwas liebliches: Dieser getreidige-malzige Einschlag, der unspektakulär aber grundehrlich daherkommt. Ok, good old Scotland ist eher was für Whisky-Trinker, aber Export-Trinker können mit Tennents Lager eine ansonsten bierlose Ferienzeit überbrücken.
