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.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2013
0.5 L clear bottle, bought @Ølhandleriet, Oslo. A shiny blond fingerthick head, upon a lightly hazed light amber colored body. Nice aroma of nutty malts, toffee, hay, and something fruity reminscent of a black currants. Healthy body considering the low abv. Slick in the mouth. Taste is less outspoken. Mild sourish-sweet malt body. Stale earthy hops the back, along with a fine berry-like fruitiness. Not bad at all, I’d love to try this one from a well kept cask.

jookos (2607) - FINLAND - OCT 6, 2012
Amber. Nose has citrus, fresh hops, caramel, toffee. Body is medium, but a tad watery, light on the palate. Caramel, malts. Typical toffee/caramel- kentish ale, but with a good dose of hops. After the hops have died off on the nose, it becomes a bit murky.

Sigmund (5309) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 5, 2012
500 ml clear bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 4.0%. Deep golden to amber colour, large white head. Strong and typical Shepherd Neame aroma of modified hops, toffee and nuts. The flavour is fairly well hopped throughout, notes of toffee and nuts again, grapefruity and medium bitter finish, becomes slightly metallic in the aftertaste. .
