Bell's Oberon Ale*
Bell's Brewery Oberon Ale (5.8% alcohol by volume) is an American Pale Wheat Ale wit no added spices or fruit. It pours a lightly hazy gold with a slight orange tint under a 2" dense white foam cap that is moderately persistent. Yeasty bread and citrus aromas rise fom the glass. Fruit and citrus flavors ride on a firm wheat malt backbone over the tongue with a moderate hop bitterness coming forward as the beer moves through the mouth. there are spicy hop flavors throughout. The body is medium light with above average carbonation. Despite the lack of added fruit or spices, this beer packs a lot of flavor while remaining refreshing and light on its feet. I rate it 85.
