Looks OK i s'pose, decent creamy head with a fair bit of lace happening. Colour was a very dull gold, quite pale. Supersweet, with heaps of alcohol showing, stewed fruit, boiled veggies, and just too much alcohol and metal in there. Quite sticky aswell, and a thin, harsh mouthfeel.

i'd been avoiding this beer for quite some time but some time but desperation to try a new beer got the better of me. no worse than i expected, harsh metalic metho flavours and pretty nasty afterburn

This is one of the lowest ratings I have given. It has got bugger all flavour and not much aroma the only thing it has got going for it is it's alcohol strength.

I am surprised that this beer is rated so low. As I sampled it, I would call it an imperial pilsner. I am surprised it is not listed as a European Strong Lager because I found it to be very similar to the Czech Republic's Extra Boom. Aroma of cheap malts. Golden body with a decent head. Hoppy upfront with a big malt finish that mostly covers up the alcohol. I found this to be an enjoyable brew.

rauchbier (3598) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2003
Can. Golden colour, poor head and low condition. Low sweet malt and hop aroma, fairly smooth and clean in the mouth with a hint of alcohol and a bitterness into the finish. Not as foul as I feared.

Not so bad for a strong lager, i'm used to worst :) Quite sweet witout a too agressive alcohol taste.

CEZ (397) - Milano, ITALY - MAY 12, 2003
[draught] I used to remember it was just too sweet for me, but the other night I decided to give it another try... and, well, I almost liked it. I admit it was a hot and sultry night, and a drink (any drink!) was definitely appreciated, but fact is that it was sweet but not cloying; the alcohol was strong but not overpowering. Smooth mouthfeel.

Can. From the first sip you knew this was tramp-juice you were drinking, to be very truthful with you it looked all right. Again this is a beer for the purist drank. I'm just a budding alcoholic so I'm going to steer well clear of this in future.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2011 Mar, 2003 The Tennents brewery was founded in 1740 in Glasgow. It was taken over by the English brewery Charrington in 1963, which in turn was taken over recently by the global Interbrew. Tennent’s has a long history of brewing lager, being the first British brewery to successfully introduce this vile substance in 1885 after Hugh Tennent visited Germany. Super strong lagers are increasing in popularity due to the success of the down-and-outs’ favourite tipple Carlsberg Special Brew. This imaginatively named Super Strong Lager is a dark urine colour, and sits like a lazy fat slob in the glass giving off a steady stream of gentle gas. The nose is reminiscent of metal, possibly aluminium. Initial taste is sweetness, quite pleasant with a good hit of honey. Firm mouthfeel like a warm duvet, with a gentle carbonation toward the finish just to add a tingle of interest. A very light metallic hop bitterness completes the experience. Very easy to drink for its strength and mostly fairly pleasant. A genuine alcopop for the tramp and slut generation. This will get the consumer drunk with little effort. [1.2]
May, 2008 Drinkable. Full bodied, malty sweet and with no nasty flavours. OK. [2.5]
March, 2011 An enjoyable firm bodied pale beer with a rounded and pleasing character. Few hops. A touch of cereal. This is not the most exciting beer in the world, but, apart from the cereal notes, it is fairly smooth and drinkable with pleasant fruit and malt notes. Cheap as chips from my local corner shop, and very drinkable. [2.7]
