Notes: First produced by Hugh Tennent at Wellpark in 1885, our flagship brand has long been established as Scotland's best-selling pint. Tennent's Lager is brewed to meticulously high standards, using exceptional ingredients and characterised by its clean taste and refreshingly crisp finish - best served ice cold. Having maintained its popularity in the face of changing tastes and fashions, Tennent's Lager has also earned widespread acclaim for its staunch commitment to football and music in Scotland.

Presentation: Green 11.16 US fluid oz bottle. Thistle flowers adorn the label and are raised in green on the bottle. Gold foil neck sheaf exclaims its import. Damn fine bottle, apart from being green.

Appearance: Very pale and extremely clear with a most amazing sticky froth with a lace that climbs the pint.

Smell: True lager aroma with an evident noble hop aroma and slight malt nose.

Taste: Very light lager with some malt and hop leafiness. Overall this tastes a bit thin with little carbonation. A spicy bitterness pulls through at the end with some sweetness.

Notes: A light yet refreshing lager. Still far superior compared to other light lagers, almost too drinkable as we could drink this all night long without complaint.

This is how a lager is supposed to taste, Very malt forward with very little to no hop taste.. The malts they use are very good and stand out, There is no hops that i can taste and that's the way i like it....
