Oberon is the color and scent of a summer afternoon poured into a pint glass.
Head nearly white sustained by nice beading from the higher level of carbonation. Lace persists, although not much of a test since this brew drinks fast. Great with a pulled pork sandwich like the one I am having from Sweet Water Bar-B-Que (famous in the Ft. Leonard Wood area).
Americanized version of a Hefe Weizen (without German Weizen flavors and aromas of banana esters and clove-like phenols) brewed with Saaz hops. Spicy and fruity, O.G.1.057
