I have this every year and for some reason I never kept anything on it in any of my notebooks. Looks like now is the time.
A- Poured into a pint glass. Nice hazy golden straw color. Nice inch head that sticks around for a little while ending with nice lacing that slides down the glass.
S- Big wheat smell here. Nothing else really just wheat. Maybe the head is covering it up?? Once the head is a little less I can pick up on a doughy smell along with very slight hints of orange (citrus) undertones. Very faint though.
T- Big bitter citrus upfront dying down to a doughy wheat finish. This is not how I remember Oberon but maybe after a year of drinking big hopbombs my palate has taken a change. It's not bad I'm just not use to this. I taste a faint metalic tone to it as well. Not all the time but every once in a while.
M- Nice carbination makes this beer dance over the palate and down the throat. A light beer that is easily in the mouth. Crisp and refreshing.
D- I could drink this as a nice session beer when hanging out with friends sitting on the porch during a warm day. It is to my liking but something says that they might have changed this beer up a little bit over the years.

I had this beer a few years ago at a cool little cafe in ohiopyle after a day of rafting and/or hiking. it hit the spot on a hot day. it is refreshing and light but with subtle hoppiness that lets you know its a bell's beer. thats all i remember about this brew but will revisit it this summer. i like pretty much all bell's beers.
