Oberon is the epitome of summer beer, and while it may not be my favorite style, it is well executed.

Poured into a sam pint glass. Appearance is hazy yellow, with a perfectly formed thick stark white head that lingers nicely throughout. Nose is wheaty, with a good helping of citrus, particularly lemon.

Taste is light and wheat, with a good helping of lemon mixed in. A little bit of slight bitterness, keeps it with the style. Nice medium body, and this beer is certainly refreshing when enjoyed on a boat ride.

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.
