12-oz bottle into thick beer mug

A - several fingers of white head atop a cloudy yellow body with plenty of floating sediment and just a few carbonation bubbles

S - wheat, citrus, honey sweetness, grass

T - wheaty malt with oranges and lemons, grass and spice from the hops leading into a dry finish

M - medium/full body, average carbonation

O - Oberon is a tasty and refreshing wheat ale. Perhaps a bit heavy for a summer brew, but a good brew nonetheless.

Got it on tap at the Flying Pig in Malvern, PA.

A: Body is light golden with a fluffy white head.

S: Wheat twang and a touch of citrus. Relatively light in the nose.

T: Overall impression is that it's light and mild. Wheat taste is there but only faint. Some citrus (lemony orange) and spice. Finishes pretty clean.

M: Light in heft, as expected for the style.

O: Pretty good. I've had better, but it was solid.
