Beer Review : Tennent’s Lager

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.

Below is the video for the beer :

December Is Hot & We Have Mosquitoes!

Simple, Free Image and File Hosting at MediaFireIt’s December and even if we here in South India don’t get a winter season – no snow, no ice and not even cold weather – and it’s usually just warm, this year it is really bad! Last year we had mornings that were cool with a little bit of morning mist. By mid morning it would be warm and kinda normal but it wasn’t that hot during December-January. This year not so much!

This year it’s mostly hot with more heat piling up. It’s quite sunny and hot these days, from say around 9 am till evening 6pm when atleast the sun goes down – and it is getting darker than usual this month. I’ll give the season atleast that much. But the evenings are worse cause I can’t keep the windows open. It’s hot and sweaty and even if there isn’t much of a breeze I’d love to be able to keep the windows open but I can’t because of all these damn mosquitoes! I’m finding it hard to sleep at night because of them bastard vampire insects buzzing around me all night long, going into my nostrils, my ears and flying into my face and biting me all over. I guess I’m going to have to get some mosquito repellent (I’m allergic to most of them) sooner rather than later.

Damn, I hate Kacheripady when it comes to mosquitoes. Having lived in a place that didn’t a problem for 19 years and then moving here to find that this is a mosquito haven, ugh! And the heat, shit we’re all gonna need personal airconditioner packs some day soon! Global warming – and to think there are idiots who think that global warming is a myth!! Don’t they read the papers, morons? This is all because of mankind being irresponsible and having causes depletion in the ozone layer.
