Bell's Oberon Ale is a boring wheat ale.
A: Yellow colour and a 5 mm head that dies pretty quick. 3.5
S: Smells very grainy. Almost like oats. 3.5
T: Wheaty base with and some slight bitterness. Not much else happening. 3.25
M: Low carbonation. 3.5

Oberon was a fruity surprise, but watery to the mouth. It had that run-of-the-mill beer look, although it had decent lacing down the glass. There are distinct scents of oranges or maybe even tangerines that you can taste distantly from the hops. It was light and refreshing if not bold and filling. A decent beer - one that you want to try if you had enough of the darker variety for a while.

12oz single picked up at Pinocchio's in Media, PA. Poured into a Stella glass.
AP: Bright gold colour with a 1" white head that fizzles down to a 1/4", decent lacing. There's both carbonation bubbles and sediment floating suspended in the liquid which reminds me of looking at a clear bottle of Aloe Vera or a lava lamp. Funky.
AR: Straw, hay, cracker, orange, funky yeast, a bit of lemon sourness.
T: Biscuit and cracker malt base with some wheat notes, soft note of lemon tartness and a touch of orange rind. Finish has a bit of a sour and bitter bite with a touch of pine and pink grapefruit and yeasty funk.
M: Too carbonated for my tastes, so much so it takes away from actually fully tasting the flavours of this beer. Finish has a kind of oily moist coating on the tongue and then starts to turn slightly dry.
OV: It's a decent Pale Wheat Ale, but I doubt I'd buy this again when I can get Lagunitas Sumpin Sumpin. I know, different takes on a PWA, apples to oranges, but this is somewhat mundane to me.
