Oberon mini keg. Served in a pint glass
A- Glowing orange/yellow. On the first day, without disturbing the sediment, it poured a hazy yellow. Henceforth I shook it a little and it had lots of suspended white floaties and was closer to orange. Cinnamon-colored deposits sat at the bottom of the glass. When first opening this keg, it has lots of carbonation, and pours a creamy white head. Small, tight bubbles.
S- Spice, wheat, barley. Very Pleasant
T- peppery, wheaty, malted barley. Moderate but evident bitterness. Not hoppy, but still spicy
M- smooth, thick, pleasing
O- different from the bottle compared to the mini keg. This is closer to a draft taste. I have suspicions that bottled it is bottle-conditioned and the mini keg is force carbonated. It's basically less earthy and tastes lighter. The second day drinking this there was little carbonation left, even with closing the tap and the vent, so I would recommend pouring all of it as quickly as possible. I would also recommend shaking the keg gently before opening to disturb the sediment. Overall, I just love the idea of a mini keg, and I had a lot of fun drinking this- with a little help from my friends.

This is a pale gold colored beer with a very hazy body, and a slight head of airy foam. Aroma consists of little more than faint wheat malt. Nice hoppiness, with high bitterness and a grassy, citrusy hop flavor. The yeast strain gives a well-rounded fruitiness. Otherwise, nothing much else here. It is well-carbonated and refreshing.
Nothing too special, but a pretty drinkable beer. It reminds me of the early days of micros when everyone made a generic American wheat.

Pours a cloudy straw color with yeast floaters all around. The finger of white head dissipates slowly but steadily. The nose is yeasty. The flavor profile follows the nose and, of course, has plenty of wheat upfront.
This offering is slightly tastier than the average wheat beer but it is certainly nothing special.
