COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mainly bottled.
Was brewed at Brentwood until Wild Card acquired their own equipment.

A ruby beer which tips its hat to both the amber ales of the west coast of the United States and a traditional best bitter from the United Kingdom.
The Jack of Clubs is a bottle conditioned, light ruby ale. Initial malty sweetness from British Crystal malts gives way to a balanced and lengthy hoppy bitterness created using a blend of flavourful and fragrant American hops.

Bottle from Wanstead Tap at Wanstead Farmers Market. Clear brown body with an off-white head. A pleasant aroma - dark and spicy. A warm caramel flavour that doesnt last long in the mouth.

Kauge (1708) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 30, 2014
Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Mai 2014, (City Beverage, London, 3,60), 33 cl. Vrvilt likena, pruunikas-sgavpunane; vaht off-valge, taandub kiirelt kirmeks, jttes seinale pitsi. Lhn on Bitteri kohta vga mnus: nagu nuusutaks eemalt mingit phkli, suti suitsuploomi ja karamellistunud suhkru segu, sekka piiisut okolaadi ja mingit errit vms. Kehalt on kerge ja pehme, mduka mulliga. Maitselt leebe ja hea: pisikese mrksuse juures on tunda karamelli ja phklit, maalhedaselt mullane ja veidi tolmune, aga heas mttes, kui see on vimalik. Vga mnus Bitter!
