Oberon is a beer from Bell's Brewery

This is one of my all time favorites! As a little kid I remember my friend's dad always drinking Oberon, and was determined to try one once I came of age. I was not disappointed! Oberon Day in March is the beginning of summer for Michigander's, and for good reason.

The beer pours orange and cloudy with a medium sized head. The smell is of oranges, wheat, and cloves. Oberon is a wheat beer, and wheat is known to give some beers a cloves taste. A smooth well balanced beer, and tastes like it smells. One can put in an orange as a garnish, however I prefer to drink it as is. Very smooth and crisp finish.

Drinkability: Perfect for a warm sunny day, there isn't many more refreshing beers for the summer. I could easily drink more than one of these as it is quite drinkable. For those outside of Michigan who have never tried it, I highly recommend it!

I've had this a few times. It's an unfiltered beer, meaning sometimes you'll get particles of stuff floating around in your beer, which I don't mind at all. For an American Pale Wheat Ale, it's more on the edge of the bitter side, but still has a taste that most American Pale Wheat Ale drinkers will appreciate. This is a good beer, but is it one of my favorites, probably not.
