Appearance- Pale golden with a cm or two of snow white head. Lots of floaters and tiny bubbles.

Smell- Honestly not much there, some light wheaty malt.

Taste- Same as the smell maybe a little floral on the finish but its subtle.

Mouthfeel- On the light side of medium.

Overall- A solid refreashing summer beer. Thats the best I can say about it but I'm also not a huge fan of most wheat beers. Glad I got to try it in a pick a 6 becuase I probably wouldn't have gotten a 6 pack.

I've been drinking the Oberon as a sessionable summer fallback for a while.

The pour is a nice hazy orange with very little head.

Smell has a hint of citrus, but nothing crazy.

Tastes tangy, a little sour with a bit of citrus. Has a similar feel to Magic Hat #9
