COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Canterbury Jack has been hand crafted using the finest Kentish hops and barley, creating a light refreshing and contemporary ale, bursting with citrus nose and flavour. Sharping its name with an ancient hop and the nickname for a county rogue, it is truly a Kentish character ale.

Lovely dark golden colour with a thin head. Quite light and citrussy. Has the potential to be refreshing although the slight metallic aftertaste spoils it somewhat. It does have a fresh aroma though which is enjoyable.

Leighton (10767) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle at chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2013 - London. Pours clearish gold with a light, creamy cap. Some dry bread in here, dry caramel, faint leaves and hints of fruits. Light in body with fine carbonation. Moderate dryness to end, with mellow leafy bitterness and grainy bread. OK.

edsspoon (368) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours amber with a fizzy off white head that lasts a while then eventually fades to a ring. Aroma is earthy and grassy hops with some pine and fruit, slightly toasty. Taste is grapefruit, grassy hops, medium bitterness, slight sweetness. Medium body and medium carbonation. It’s not terribly interesting but it’s a pretty solid bitter.

Bottle. Amber beer with a good but light head. The aroma is bitter with strong roasted and toffee'ness. The flavour is also bitter with toffee'ness and some smooth maltiness. Overall a nice bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jackafholmes (171) - - APR 5, 2014
Variety pack from macro. Appealing citrus zest on the nose. Deep amber in colour with a quickly dissipating foamy head. Slightly over carbonated for my taste, but a fruity, malty flavour with a refreshing bite of hop.

nilsas (1331) - Bryne, NORWAY - APR 1, 2014
syrlig duft av malt og noe karamell. Fin gyllen farge. Lite skum, ring langs kant. Frisk smak med en syrlig tone. Greit drikke øl.

Finn (4141) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2014
Flaske 0,5% fra Eide Handel. Drukket hjemme 4 Okt 13. Gyldenbrun. Høyt luftig skum som varer en stund. Pen lacing. God maltaroma med antydning til frukt. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken er malt & karamell. Blir litt syrlig bitter etter hvert. Avslutninga er tørr frukt. Veldig godt butikkøl!

BlackHaddock (3631) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Clear 500ml bottle: BBD Jun 14, poured into a UK pint sleeve at home on 15 Feb 14. Autumnal orange body with a swiftly dying white head. Mild citrus hop nose combined with biscuity malts and a yeast trace. The taste is semi-malty with a citrus feel, OK rather than wonderful. A pleasant blend of flavours but nothing to really get your taste buds going. Medium to semi-weak body wise, a typical low priced Shepherd Neame supermarket beer.
