Bell’s Oberon Ale

Notes added 06/20

It’s funny how perspective on any given beer changes over time, with experience, and with changing circumstances. Oberon is a beer that’s been on my own radar for going towards two decades, and honestly not one that I ever think much about, but always enjoy when it is placed in front of me.

The ability of this beer to hit a very particular spot in terms of drinking pleasure is quite pronounced, and as such it always pleases. Whether that’s the thirst-quenching element, or the familiarity, or even perhaps the simplicity of the beer in an ever more tedious array of unwanted complexity, I’m not sure, but Oberon brings with it a smile. Long live Oberon!


Notes added 08/08

12 oz bottle from Penney after a recent trip to Bloomington, IN, USA – many thanks. Creamy, light citrus and finishes beautifully smooth. Very high drinkability. Definite honey elements.


Original notes 11/06

12oz bottle purchased as a single from Liquor Barn, Lexington, KY. $1.50, coded 7575 on the rear label.

Hazy butterscotch pour with lovely head and some great lacing. Smells great with sharp wheat, sweet and honey based.

Delicious and refreshing all at the same time. I’m drinking this in November, the wrong time of year and certainly not very fresh but it still holds up beautifully.

Full mouthfeel, silky and smooth. Tiny bitterness in the aftertaste. Excellent beer in a style that I usually don’t care too much for.
