1.18/5  rDev -50.2%
look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

It has a golden full colour, with a decent foam, and a lot of bubble.
In the smell some stale hop, and malt sweetness. But when the beer is a bit more warm than the ice, a lot of alcohol, strong and unpleasant.
The taste is even worse: sharp alcohol again, annoying and dominant over all. Sweet and sugary, with no bitterness at all.
Aftertaste sweet and sickly, again.
Very difficult to drink. A beer absolutely to avoid. (426 characters)

500ml can

Pours with an almost colourless body. Thin and watery head, pathetic looking

Smell, as if someone had spilt a bottle of surgical spirits into an already shitty dull lager

Taste, strong alcohol, nothin much else, bit of rice

Not a good beer, infact an awful beer (283 characters)

a terrible beer. i would not inflict this brew on anyone. super strong is revolting all the way and not a patch on their very nice standard lager.

pours like a normal lager. same color and head as most, tho not a lot of bubble action happening. the smell is horrid. sickly sweet, quite metallic. same on the tongue, backed with an overwhelming alcohol flavor, like someones slipped a couple of measures of vodka in there. stripped the lining off the inside of my throat. i was feeling this after one sip. why i finished the can i dont know, but by the end of it all i was a mess.

tennents super is one that surely needs a warning label plastered on it. its toxic and a serious hazard to anyone brave or foolish enuff to drink it. if you see this on your bottleo shelf, look away immediately. (799 characters)

I'm swimming upstream on this one, but I like Tennent's, and found this strong (meaning stronger alcohol content) in Bermuda. The bar was out of Guinness and thought of this strong lager as a good substitute. Well it sure wasn't an adequate replacement for the Guinness' Extra Stout Foreign Export, but it did quench my burger thirst in a big time way.

Yes, it did skunk a bit, but it has a special Tennent's flavor that I find pleasing. The look was dark gold with a big head that left too soon, but did lace a bit. Against the somewhat bitter background came a swell of alcohol that said "sip this one, don't gulp it." So sip I did. Overall, much better than typical American macros, but too potent for a session. My guess is that most American drinkers will rate this higher than our UK brethren since to us it's "better than Bud" and to them it's nothing like their very fine, high quality regional ales. (911 characters)

Yikes. This is the strongest lager I have ever had, and it's by far the nastiest. One whiff of it and I knew what I was in for. I have never seen a lager at 9%, and it tasted like 9%. It was disgusting. If you ever find this crap, stay away. Stay far far away. (260 characters)

I would have to agree with you on that quote. Sneaked it into our hotel room, not that they probably cared. This beer has an alcohol level that just slams you in the face at the first aroma. The beer was a yellow color with no lace and was fairly clear. The aroma was the usual corn or whatever that crazy lager smell is. The flavor is just impossible to hold on to because the alcohol just cuts through everything including the finish, creating quite a bite to it. Basically a beer for getting trashed fast. (508 characters)
