Quite a malty tasting beer, off brown in colour, tastes ok but not something I’d go back to

Very light golden orange color with a minimal head that goes away and remains like an IPA usually does - you know that half ther, wholey ugly that’s just beautiful to a beer geek like you and I. There’s a light hoppy flavor and while it’s a bitter, I thought it could have been an IPA.

mike_77 (3127) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2010
Light brown colour. Quite a sweet and lightly fruity aroma. Medium body, clean and easy to drink. Soft malty flavour, slight hop dryness. Good session beer.

Bottle. Golden colour. Aroma of malt, flavour of malt, some bitterness in the finish. Medium body. This is not a good beer.

tommann (2723) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours a golden copper colour with a very small head. Aroma is malt with a hint of blackcurrants. A liitle sweet to start then a strong bitter finish. Thin body with medium carbonation.

sm89walt (1756) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 23, 2009
Bottle. Amber with medium body carbonation and a one finger off-white head leaving slight lacing and a pencil thin final layer of foam. Notes of toasted malts, some earthiness, dusty hops and a hint of sweetness on the nose. Caramel and toasted malt flavours, a grassy hop note, nuttiness and a lingering dry bitter finish. Thin to medium body with an initially aggressive amount of carbonation and a slightly raw mouthfeel - pasteurisation shows here especially.

RichardW (1517) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2009
Plentry of roast flavour and body and a good aftertaste of blackcurrants. Taste lingers well on the tongue and throat. As supermarket label beers go, this is one of the best and currently on sale at £1.00.......

downender (6290) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2009
Very lively pour, with a deep amber colour. Muted malt aroma with some dusty hops. Flavour was sweet, with chunky malts, dried floral hops and a short, bitter finish. Ok, but this was subdued all round.

Light amber colour with a small white head. Smell of flowery hops with a flowery hoppy taste.

Bottle 500ml. I picked up three Shepherd Neame bottles yesterday, a 1698, a Whitechapel Porter and this Gentleman Jack. The 1698 was great, the Porter was crap, so what was this one going to yield? Well, it pours a good translucent brown with a medium white head. A slightly fruity aroma with hops. The taste was okay, a fairly standard brew, but not quite a premium bitter. I found it a little thin on the palate.
