Oberon is a wheat ale fermented with Bell's signature house ale yeast, mixing a spicy hop character with mildly fruity aromas.

If this was a macro attempt at a craft brew, it wouldn't get a C rating. For as bland as it is, I'm actually kind of angry it has such a high ABV, which precludes me from having 6 of them on a Saturday afternoon without getting more sauced than I'd prefer.

It has a bitter/citrisy taste that stays on the tongue for a while. It has a cloudy appearance. I feel it's highly overrated, at least here in Michigan. To me it's just an OK beer. Personally I don't think this beer is worth the cost @ around $9/6 pack. I can get a 12 pack of a cheaper beer like Old Milwaukee or PBR for the same price. I think those are much better beers anyways. Individual bottles of Oberon can be had at Meijer stores for $1.99 each.
