Bottle on vacation, I snagged a few sips from my wife. Golden color with white head. Aroma of wheat, some citrus notes and yeast. Taste is wheat malt and a light citrus note. Light body, moderate carbonation, easy drinking with a the slightest bitter hop finish. Tasty light summer drink.

Sampled @ ChrisO after GBBF day 2. Clear golden color, small white to off-white head. Smell and taste malts, slightly cardboard, lightly vegetables, a hint of fruit peel, bitter. Average body, fizzy carbonation. Quite bad.

sudomorph (564) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2014
On tap at the Tilted Kilt Indianapolis. Pours a fairly clear, golden yellow with a thin, near white head that coats the glass. Aroma is slight traditional hops, and a bit of grain. Taste is balanced. Mild wheat flavours with a very balanced hop flavour. Medium body with a medium-high carbonation. Pretty clean and refreshing in the mouth. Overall not really my thing. Faint aroma with a mild wheat taste.

Bottle from GBBF. Pours a hazy straw/gold with a white head. Light corn, light lemon, white bread aroma. Light body, medium to full carbonation. Lemon, light corn, light bread, light metal, grass... It’s fine. Solid, refreshing light bodied beer.

Oberon means summer. This beer is best enjoyed on a hot summer day. Thanks to the brewers at Bells for bringing summer in a glass.

Golden orange with a big foamy head. Aroma spicy, yeasty and slightly hoppy. Taste fruity and spicy. Fairly sweet, good summer drink if you like your beers smooth and not bitter.

Good summer beer but too sweet for me. Drank a bottle, so draft might be better. .....
