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

O: 3.25

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.
