3.88/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12-oz bottle into thick beer mug

A - several fingers of white head atop a cloudy yellow body with plenty of floating sediment and just a few carbonation bubbles

S - wheat, citrus, honey sweetness, grass

T - wheaty malt with oranges and lemons, grass and spice from the hops leading into a dry finish

M - medium/full body, average carbonation

O - Oberon is a tasty and refreshing wheat ale. Perhaps a bit heavy for a summer brew, but a good brew nonetheless.

3.8/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Hazy, golden color with one finger of head that fades to a ring.

Aroma: Sweet malt, a little yeast funk, Lemon

Taste: Sweet malt, a little cardboard, then lots of carbonation leading to a pleasantly mild citrus rind bitterness and some spice notes, nothing distinct that I could pick out. Finish is lingering.

The Rest: Medium bodied, all-day drinkability and a pleasing flavor profile, this is one of my favorite summer beers.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

A- cloudy off yellow colored body, small fingernail head that reduces to a thin discontinuous layer

N - something about this that turns me away.. I can pick up citrus but there's something else on the forefront that I can't quite put my finger on

M - light and noticeable carbonation feel

T - eh.. Same as the nose. I can pick up citrus flavor which is great but there's something that turns me off

O - this bottle was 2 months old but that's not bad.. I don't know but I wasn't a fan of this. I wouldn't cringe if offered one but I would ask what else was is available..
