I had seen this beer so many times and never really thought too much about getting it.  One day the bottle of beer just stuck out to me.  Has this ever happened to you?  You’ve just sort of ignored a beer for no real reason?  I guess we can find out if you should keep ignoring this beer.

Tanner’s Jack had a lovely golden-orange body, which gives it some nice eye appeal.  It seemed to have pretty low head retention, which can happen from several different things.  Either way, it shimmered in the glass.

Hops were immediately evident on the nose of this brew.  A sweet malty aroma was also very prevelant.  Other than that, there wasn’t too much going on in the beer.

The sweet malts were the first thing to come through, and the hops were also still nicely present.  Tanner’s Jack had a very nice grainy quality with a nice amount of dryness.  That dryness lingered all the way to the end of the beer, and the grains were replaced by a nice hop finish. 

The beer was not uneventful, but it wasn’t exactly spectacular.  I would drink this beer again but would probably choose several English Ales before it.  Still, it’s worth trying.
