This household thoroughly enjoys whiskey, we indulge at least once a week. I was gifted my first bottle of Crown Royal shortly after my 21st birthday on Christmas and haven’t stopped drinking Crown and Coke ever since. Irish, Canadian, Kentucky, Iowan, everything but Jack. Okay I’ll take Honey Jack but would take Canadian Club over regular Jack. But I’m also a home brewer and have been a beer drinker since my dad gave me an Old Style at an early age. Great beer BTW. This leads us to our first beer review, Bell’s Oberon. I hate to admit but I was oblivious to Oberon before I met Tiffany. Being a Michigander she grew up with this bliss on every corner and thankfully bought some our first spring together.
Bell’s Oberon is a wheat ale fermented with Bell’s signature house ale yeast, mixing a spicy hop character with mildly fruity aromas. The addition of wheat malt lends a smooth mouthfeel, making it a classic summer beer. Brewed with Hersbrucker hops for bittering and Saaz for aroma and flavor, if I’m not careful I can drink Oberon like a session beer. I look forward to brewing a clone recipe next weekend and hope it is semi close to the original. If you are in the Midwest, you must find this beer. Bell’s has a lot of good beer, for more variety and availably check out the website.
