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]

Very popular beer in Italy, but in my opinion it is a beer simply too much sweet. Good only for getting easily drunk.

Well, it’s not so good. But it’s quite inoffensive as well.

Poured well, frothy head, golden hue, but there the enjoyment ended. An overbearing sweet honey aroma followed by what can be described like licking a bees bum. Sickly sweet

9% and 3 cans made the shakes go away the morning after an overexuberant tasting session in London. Other than the % it has nothing going for it.
