2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.......

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.
