Poured in a Pilsner glass at the Eccentric Cafe.
A- Poured a hazy wheaty orange with a solid 1" head. It left behind loads of lacing.
S- Strong orange scent with a touch of spices and a hint of hops.
T- Lots of citrus and some spice with a light hop taste. It tasted very fresh.
M- Really gentle mouthfeel with medium carbonation.
D- I've always had a special place for Oberon, as it was my introduction to craft beer many moons ago (I think it had just made the switch from being named Solsun at the time). However, my relationship with the beer has been hot and cool over the years. Friends have said it is even better on tap at the Pub. Not wanting to believe them and having the desire to sample the tap only options every time I've been to Bell's in the past, this is my first time actually having Oberon on tap at the Eccentric. I have to say it was the freshest beer I've had in a long time and totally worth it. It's a great summer beer made for relaxing.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured bottle packaged on 5/29/14 into New Belgium globe
A-Pours a hazy medium gold color with a small white head that dissipates fairly quickly with minimal lacing.
S-Smell is of light fruits and citrus, hops, and wheat.
T-Tastes of light citrus and sweet malt up front, followed by some wheat bread taste and finished with some dry hops for a nice amount of bitterness.
M-Mouthfeel is light, tangy, and highly carbonated.
O-Overall a refreshing beer but no outstanding qualities about it.
