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.

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]

50cl Can at my girlfriend’s grandparents’ house. I was quite shocked they offered this when I asked for a beer. Deep golden colour, bubbley white head. Aroma of fruity esters, alcohol, sweet, caramel. Flavour is sweet, light malty, fruity, alcohol, light bitter alcoholic finish. Light to medium bodied. Not bad, no real nasty flavours. Not good as well.

50cl can. Pours pale gold with a billowing cream coloured head; the aroma has grain, stewed vegetables and alcohol; the flavours not to bad with sour grains and a syrupy texture; and the alcohol isn’t too apparent on the warming finish.

It appears i am one of the few who enjoyed this beer. It smelled alright to me and it tasted like one of the couple of beers that I had that were aged in the bottle like 5 or 7 years, except much better.
