This one pours a very cloudy blonde color with a nice white head that is relatively thick and settles moderately slowly while leaving nice lacing down the glass.

The noise is sweet malts, bread, cumin, back pepper and a touch of pine.

The taste is an exceptional one with similar notes to the nose and sweet malts, bread, cumin, back pepper and a touch of pine. Great balance and very excellent overall flavor. I love it.

The mouthfeel is rich but not too rich and it is just right for this style.

Overall another fine example of a rather exceptional beer.

Oberon is a seasonal beer and I had this for the first time. It tastes so good and is on my top list of my favorite beers. I added an orange to the beer after I poured it into a glass. It was delicious! I recommend this beer to anyone who likes a lighter beer and a beer that is not super dark. I am a fan of lighter beer.
