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.

Rune (7349) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2013
500ml bottle from EuroSpar Langnes, thanks to Leif for sharing. Clear amber coloured body. Off-white head that recedes to a tiny layer. Spotty glass-lacing. Herbal hoppy nose with mid-sweet malts. Rounded flavours of citrus and mid-sweet malts. Very smooth bittersweet finish. Quite well bodied considering the low abv. Satisfying session drink (Tromsø, 02.08.2013).

Foffern (1065) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a clear amber colour with an off-white medium head. Lots of fudge in the aroma along with cake, oak, grassy hops and wort. The flavour has more grassy hops with hay, and feels dry in the end. Has a slick and light mouth feel, and a lasting medium bitterness. An okay bitter but maybe a bit light flavour and a little unbalanced.

abemorsten (2491) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2013
0,5 l shared bottle from ICA Mandal. Clear sparkling golden orange body with a small white head. Flowery, heathery malts on the nose. Fruity tobacco notes on a watery textured, resiny and light papery bitterness. Medium bodied.

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 15, 2013
500ml bottle at a gig in Charlie’s. Pours a clear amber red with a lasting white head. Aroma is caramel, toast and a vague fruitiness. Taste is nearly all sweetness with just a touch of bitterness there in the balance - again lots of caramel and fruit. Refreshing malty aftertaste, very smooth on the palate. Decent enough beer, I’d happily drink it again at €4 a bottle.

Kopperfarvet med fint skum som varer en stund. Maktet lukt. Smak av malt, sjokolade og bitter humle. Supermarked.

Palme (2993) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 10, 2013
0.5l bottle. This is a crystal clear bronze colored one with a small light lacing off-white top. On the nose I get tones of wood, dark English caramel , dark malts and traces of cardboard. It’s about average on the carbonation and the mouthfeel is light oily and not bad at all considering this is a 4% ABV beer. Dry caramel in the taste, some butter hints (not in a bad way), a gentle bitter - bitterness and some almonds. I’m not standing in the couch screaming THIS IS A FANTASTIC EXCITING Beer, but it’s a fine little bitter. 23.02.2013

ClubGonzo (3509) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle from ICA Maaseskjæret, Bergen. Pours a light bronze body with a small white head. Nose is toffee, caramel, soft floral tones and hints of red berries. Taste is caramel, toffee, citric peel, bitter floral tones and hints of grass and red fruits. Medium body, soft to medium carbonation. Not terribly exciting perhaps, but not too bad in its simplicity.
