BOD 3/3/16. Almost clear golden pour with suspended matter. Add the bottom of the bottle and it becomes quite full of suspended matter. Very good head volume, average retention and outstanding lacing. Good nose of light lemon and wheat cracker. Light body that is smooth. Outstanding carbonation / body balance. A light effervescence at the beginning that gains strength and closes with a nice prickly finish. The flavor profile is very good but lacks a bit of complexity. Intensity and balance are outstanding. Light lemon and wheat cracker arrive initially. Mid palate delivers a subtle bitterness and an equally subtle biscuit sweetness. Clove becomes the main component from the middle on riding over the wheat. The finish is somewhat crisp and light clove lingers.

Two 12 oz bottles at The Beechwood Lounge. Bready malt characteristics with light spicy hop bitterness and hints of fruity esters. Light and pretty easy drinking overall.

Okay ale. Unfiltered might be throwing me off but a bit flat on the wheat side though I get the pale ale part ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bell’s Oberon has a medium, off-white head, an initially clear, yellow appearance, some streaming bubbles, and stringy lacing left behind. The beer clouds up, after the "swish & pour". Aroma is of spices (alligator pepper?), sweet, white bread, and maybe sourdough. Taste is of slight banana, alligator pepper, white pepper, coriander, a shade of banana, white wheat bread, possible bubble gum, and practically no bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and fluffy, and Oberon finishes drinkable and semi-dry. RJT
