I've had this both on tap and in the can. This beer is a lager meaning it is bottom fermented. Tennent's pours a light straw colour with a quickly disappearing head of foam. It is rather carbonated with streaming bubbles. This makes the burp factor high. It had a faint aroma. It tastes like a typical Euro lager. The mouth feel is clean and crisp. Over all it is refreshing and crisp. It's one of the better mass produced lager beers out there.

16 oz. draft at Braveheart Highland Pub in Hellertown, Pa. Solid lager. Don't understand the low scores.

On tap at The Cock & Bull Pub. The waitress brought it in a plastic cup. The beer was straw colored with virtually no head. There was very little lacing left. No aroma to speak of and very little taste. Quite watery to be honest. Over all not horrible but not like what I remembered in Scotland.

Bringing out those yellow beers in a green bottle and charging out the wazoo for it. Soft 1/3" white head. Still has a bit of skunk to it, not enough in my book, but I'm weird when it comes to lagers.

Taste, spritzy, lively, enjoyable. Decent Euro lager. Is this all barley? Seems lighter in the mouthfeel. Minor fruity alcohol impact. Its decent stuff at a premium price if you ask me.
