Tennent’s is a beer from Scotland. Wellpark Brewery is a brewery situated in Duke Street in the East End of Glasgow, Scotland. It was founded in 1740 on the bank of the Molendinar Burn by Hugh and Robert Tennent. It is currently owned by C&C Group plc, which purchased the Tennent Caledonian Breweries subsidiary in late August 2009 from Belgian brewing company Anheuser-Busch InBev (formerly known as InBev). And Tennent’s lager is the beer that I was trying tonight.
Before this evening I had never seen or heard of Tennent’s lager and was apprehensive about getting this beer. Ofcourse the beer I had was brewed in India, as most international lagers that we get here are. They will have a tie up with a brewery in India, in order to sell their swill in this country. I usually go for Carslberg, Tuborg or Kingfisher (only the latter is purely Indian) but the beverages store didn’t have any other beer available. So I got this one.
The beer comes in the dark 650ml bomber bottles that we are used to here in India. It smelled strong and even a little bit, the tiniest bit ever mind you, fruity but it poured a pale yellow colour. The colour of piss after you have had too many beers. But to taste it was dry, bitter and not as strong as I thought. I didn’t have anything to help the process at all except for some salted biscuits which seemed to work. It was poor beer. I’m better off sticking with Tuborg & Carlsberg or even Kingfisher.
