500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear golden orange, thin white head. Aromas of creamy orange desserts, light vanilla custard. Taste let’s it down a bit I’m afraid, not really very much going on. Light bitter, light sweet. Thin finish.

Gravity dispense at the 15th Kingston BF, 16/05/14. Clear golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is wheat, citrus peel, straw, bread dough, light mandarin. Taste comprises caramel, vailla, wheaten bread, light spice, straw. Medium bodied, moderate carboantion with subtle bitterness. So so wheat.

RichTheVillan (6903) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2013
Cask at The Barton Arms; clear amber pour with soapy white head, malt aroma, a smidgen of orange in the taste not much wheat beer coming through in the look or taste, adequate English bitter.

caesar (6685) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2013
Cask @ gbbf, medium sample. Clear golden color, medium head. Aroma has bit Orange, bit wheat. Bit bitter taste. All in all its quite thin and watery, though the creaminess is wonderful.

essexcalf (172) - Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2013
On cask at The Queen’s Head, Lower Anchor Street, Chelmsford, 25/01/13. Doesn’t look or taste a lot like a wheat beer, more like a citrussy bitter. The orange isn’t too strong either. Quite hoppy too, for a wheat beer; towards IPA levels. Quite a cereally aroma, with some orange & dry yeast. Done quite well, subtle & quaffable. Little aftertaste though.

Excellent nose, but neither the fruits of the wheat character transfer well into the taste.

Bland and tasteless, apparently now using Citra hops ? They seemed to be missing ! To be honest I actually find Green Jack beers very average.

asheft (2990) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2012
[on cask in Edinburgh] Citrus and slightly earthy hops with a contrapuntal citrusy fermentation accent. Almost clear gold under a lasting, white foam. Malty flavour with a faint phenolic note. Smooth, medium body, low carbonation.

Big orange with light hoppy citrus. Sweet with mid bitter, quite a nice beer for a summers day.
