For Burns Night, offer in Scotland only?

what has Tennents lager and having sex by the river got in common? They're both %$"*ing close to water ....

I guess it's a good deal though, so voted hot!

Tennents Lager is fortunately restricted to Scotland!

Stick to the Buckie, you'll get there quicker...

Good deal, but have to agree that imho is possibly the worst lager I have ever tasted.

Amazing how we all have different tastes when it comes to the bevvy. I have been drinking Tennents since I could walk and has always been my absolute favourite lager. Maybe a Scottish thing, don't know if you sassenachs have much access to this particular lager.

It's Carling Black Label in a different tin.

No way is Tennents lager the same as Carling Black Label.

It's amazing what a different label on the can does to the flavour....

Actually, it might or might not be exactly the same stuff any more.

It was until this happened in 2001ish:

Both Tennents and Carling were originally owned by Bass. When Bass was sold to InterBrew (now called InBev), the Competitions Commission made them sell some brands off. Coors bough the Carling brand. InBev retained Tennents.

Used to be the same lager, same tin, same production line, same factory (Wellpark) - the only difference was the printing on the can.

Despite the change in ownership, I expect the beer will still be the same. Tennents = Carling.

I believe you are very wrong.

Both were Bass brands until Commissions Commission forced them to sell some brands.

PS I've edited the post you had quoted to give more explanation.

Still don't see the link. Tennents was an independent Scottish brewery for over 200 years. So how could it be the same lager as Carling which was itself brewed by a separate company. There may have been some coming together of the companies in recent history. However, the lagers are very distinctly different. I have been drinking lagers for some 40 years. Tennnents has always been my favourite and has always had a distinct taste of its own. Don't think you will ever convince me otherwise. Carling is one of my least favourite lagers along with Stella.

I agree 100% with you and why I always (well nearly always) vote on the deal not just on my opinion of a product:thumbsup:

It's a few years since I last had a can, my uncle from Edingburgh bought me a box for christmas, took me ages to drink it as I just didn't like the taste. Maybe this is the answer to my drink problem, lol.

As for Carling and Tennents being the same product, no way on this earth. I wouldn't go as far as to say they never have been, but certainly not now.

For those that like it, fill yer boots!:-D
