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.

Bottle from Meny Manglerud enjoyed at home
Copper hazy, offwhite head. Smells of malts, english hops, tea and biscuit. Moderate sweet, quite dry, some nice dark malts and some dark fruits. Moderate to medium bitter finish with earthy hops and resins. A quite good bitter; easy drinkable and good session stuff

seritomi (342) - HUNGARY - APR 11, 2015
UPDATED: APR 14, 2015 Szép tiszta sötét borostyán lágy vékonyan megmaradó habbal. Illata finom nem túlzottan sok karamell, garfruit, citrus, komlóolaj. Visszafogottan édes és malátás erősen keserű kenyeres utóízzel. Élén szénsavas. Van benne komló rendesen. A hatos bitter csomag 4. áldozata eddig a legjobbja.

Holmen2 (2289) - NORWAY - APR 8, 2015
Bottle contributed by, and shared with, EMJ at OSB 08.04.15. Clear golden. Foamy and persistent off-white head. Wondeful aroma of English hops, fresh grass and malt. Similar superb taste, with good grass-ish bitterness on aftertaste. Very quaffable.

Cerveja leve com notas lupuladas no nariz e na boca. Espuma pouco duradoura. Cor de cobre e um leve amargor no paladar. Refrescante e interessante.

Belíssima apresentaçăo, âmbar com boa formaçăo de espuma. No aroma percebe-se notas terrosas, caramelo, toffee e lúpulo.O sabor é bem maltado, as notas terrosas e o dulçor do malte săo destaques, o lúpulo proporciona discreto amargor no retrogosto. Corpo e final médios. Uma legítima Bitter Inglesa.

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 (15396) - 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 (798) - 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.
