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.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2005
Can at Jacob Lövenlunds place. Golden colour with a Big fast dissapering white head. Light alcoholic malty aroma and a sweet caramel malty alcoholic taste. Medium body and a sweet alcoholic finish.

Beer5000 (5949) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 17, 2013
330 ml bottle sampled in 2008. Clear golden body with a medium sized white head. Aroma is weak malt, grain and somehow fruity. Flavor is sweet, harsh bitter, sharp alcoholic. Thin body and a bit sour in aftertaste. Too alcoholic and unbalanced.

Can at home. Golden apple colour. Sugary, grassy smell. Strong alcohol taste, way too strong. Sugary taste. Not really drinkable. Pass.

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.

Theres a reason i walk through glasgow and see even junky scumbag with a can of this, cause its just alcoholic water that is ment only for the scum of the earth. The fact it comes in cans is a good thing though, as it means they can chase u down the street with a bottle.

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]

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2003
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.

Bottle. Yellow orange pour with a fizzy white head. Very sweet, heavy boose, rotting fruit, and garbage. Difficult to drink.

skortila (5338) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2007
Canned. Alcoholic, bit malty, bit hoppy aroma. Clear, copper coloured with a large, off-white, frothy head. Taste is very sweet, very alcoholic, sugary, slightly malty and just a bit hoppy. Sticky and burning mouthfeel. This beer is like a nascar racetrack.
