Breakfast Beer Tasting: Green Jack Orange Wheat
The basics: A standard 500ml bottle that clocks in at 4.2%. It poured as a golden ale with poor carbonation and a very thin white head. Not much in the way of aroma except for a faint impression of marmalade.
Taste: Quite thin and bland really. You do get some orange, some dry bitterness and a slight sourness, but not in any great measure.
Finish: Slight orange dryness.
Conclusion: Disappointing really. I see that the Ormskirk Baron has rated it a 3/5, but I’d say 2/5. Whilst the American hops did lend it some bitterness, there simply wasn’t enough. Ditto for the East Anglian Wheat and the orange peel. One for the significant other.
