My 2nd take on Oberon. First time I was extremely underwhelmed though I believe this was more due to age than a reflection of the beer as the 2nd time around was much more enjoyable. The beer pours a clear yellow straw color with a 2 finger white cap, good retention and lacing. Already looks better than I remember. The nose has a subtle citrus with a mild wheat base. Mild but appealing and inviting. The flavor starts with a gentle citrus flavor (orange and lemon?) and then is amplified by the mild wheat base. Mildly bitter the hops provide a welcome flavor addition with citrus flavors that meld well with the wheat. Neither is overpowering and as such the beer is well balanced. Medium bodied but lighter the beer is well carbonated. Overall, glad I gave this a 2nd chance as it was a vast improvement from the first beer. I'd drink again easily.
