i found the following review of bell's oberon in my little pocket notebook today while disposed in the men's room with no other reading material to bide my time. before the review, let me just say that this beer, this ridiculously bright and cheery liquid springtime poetic splash, is one of my favorites by this company. swirl this bottle, pour it slow and watch the sift of a citrusy onslaught gush river-rapid into the sea-bottom of your awaiting pint glass. thank You, Lord, for oberon even out of season.

OBERON - bright orange color. slanted fractions of yellows and reds pierce through the beer unexpected and strobelike. sediment heavy bottom - call me "bottom-dweller."citrus and banana aromas. summertime in a glass. pure wispy tall grass and fresh laundry flavor. roadtrip windows down and prolonging the destination aftertaste. big. as always.
