Poured from a chilled can into an English style nonic pint glass. The beer poured straw yellow with not much head. Lots of streaming bubbles indicated carbonation was present. Virtually non existent aroma or bouquet. Taste was bland with just a hint of sweetness. Typical of these mass produced lagers. Mouth feel was very watery and unsatisfactory. Overall very poor and uninspired despite being the best selling lager in Scotland. The only good things were that it wasn't expensive and it wasn't bloody Carling. I'm rather picky when it comes to choosing and imbibing my adult beverages.

On tap poured into a plastic cup. Lots of streaming bubbles w/out much head. Smells faintly of damp leaves. Taste was overly sweet. Mouth feel was watery and rather thin. Over all typical Euro lager. There was no substance and the beer left me wanting something better. Tennent's may be okay after a long day at work or at a sporting event but that's about it. I suppose if the choice was the lager or the stout version I'd have to go with the lager. Both of which in my opinion really missed the mark. I still view Tennent's lager as a get pissed at a party quick type of beer rather than a sip and savor the flavor one. One thing I will say that is somewhat positive Tennent's is bluddy cheap.

A good solid beer. Nothing flashy. Tasted fresh at Brewery.

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.
