Tap. Just a hint of hops in the aroma and flavor. Medium bodied. Maybe a bit of glue in the aftertaste. Otherwise a clean palate. Decent lager, but nothing special.

first of all, if you can find this on tap, that's the only way to sample it. believe me, the difference is shocking. out of the bottle it's like a scottish heineken, but on tap, it's one of the better beers out there. unoffensive and light but full...hard to explain but damn good.

hopscotch (10766) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2003
Crystal clear, light golden lager with a large, fizzy, white head. Weeping lacework. Not much along the lines of aroma. Some black pepper and citrus fruit. A touch of doughy yeast. Not at all offensive. Very thin flavor, but there are light notes of butterscotch, lemon rind and black pepper. Nicely balanced and well-bittered. Light-bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel. Short, crisp, clean finish. I'm with Josh, though. With all those great Scottish ales and single malt whiskies, why would anyone in Scotland bother with this swill?

jerkadilly74 (155) - mooresville, Indiana, USA - AUG 12, 2003
Awesome brew. I just tried this just last night and was delighted. Great bold flavor. Bitter, nicely carbonated. A well balanced, smooth, malty finish. Aroma reminded me of several other good lagers. This brew tasted like it was stronger than 4% abv but I guess you can't always have everything.

Dorwart (2562) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2003
Nice thick head with decent carbonation. Aroma is a little skunky but has some lovely bread beneath it. Color is a medium gold/orange with good clarity. Flavor is malty, with more bread and a little on the sweet side. Decent balance thoughout. Finish is slightly bitter and crisp with good balance again. A decent lager and remember "If it's not Scottish, It's CRAP"

MaBeer1972 (1899) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 27, 2003
A run-of-the-mill golden lager. Probably better than a Beck's or Stella, but otherwise nothing special here.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - JUL 26, 2003
This lager pours a pale, golden color with a small, fizzy white head that rapidly dissipates. The aroma is mildly malty with some hoppiness evident. It has a light body with a moderate amount of carbonation and a somewhat crisp mouthfeel. The flavor is sweet from malts and probably added corn. The finish is mildly sweet and a little corny. An average lager, nothing spectacular.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2003
Color is a off pale golden yellow with a fluffy white head that got about two fingers high but faded fast to leave little lacing effect and just skimmed into a misty, bubbly top. Smell is mostly light malt thats soft and clean with a bit of grainyness lingering in the back. Taste starts slightly sweet, delicate in its acidity, with spotty hops and the finish going into dryness. Feel is light bodied and thin but is pretty drinkable, not bad, but could be better.

Basically, Tennent's Lager is as good (if not better) than any of the other cheap lagers in the UK. People drinking Carling or Fosters in pubs across England don't know what they're missing. On the other hand, it's a chemically brewed lager and fundamentally it has nothing to recommend it.

Oct 2000 - noticed an odd spicey flavour that wasn't expected, possible the hops? Would not buy again.
