I've been a beer lover for as long as I can remember. I have little formal training (I have taken a beer appreciation course), and I do not possess a "sophisticated palate". I simply know what I like and why. My tastes range from lagers to porters and everything in between. This blog is a collection of reviews, as well as a platform for my thoughts on all things beer. Cheers!

Tennent's Original Export Lager
Glasgow, Scotland's Tennent Caledonian Breweries manufactures Tennent's Original Export Lager. It's sold in a very plain looking 500mL can and contains the requisite 5% alcohol. It pours a clear hay colour, and is topped with a lusty white head. Export Lager is moderately carbonated. It has a grassy, slightly metallic aroma. The flavour of cut grass leads gracefully into a slightly bitter finish.
This isn't an earth-shaking lager, but one that's refreshing and crisp. Give it a try.
