Commercial Description

Oskar Blues Mama's Little Yella Pils is a delicious, small-batch version of the beer that made Pilsen, Czechoslovakia famous. Mama’s is made with hearty amounts of pale malt, German specialty malts, and traditional (Saaz) and 21st century Bavarian hops. It’s the perfect antidote for the watered-down, cornfed versions of pilsner clogging America’s shelves. Our first canned lager, it’s also fermented at cool temperatures with a German yeast. While it’s rich with Czeched-out flavor, Mama’s gentle hopping (about 35 IBUs) and low ABV (just 5.3%) makes it a luxurious but low-dose beer. Look for our Gold Metal Winner on US shelves in March. Sadly, the Feds rejected our “Take Two and Call Us in the Morning” line on the can.

    A: Pours extremely clear with a half inch pillow soft head that dissipates after a couple minutes. Big bubbles rising. Attractive if light lacing as drunk.
    S: Baguette and grass. Tart aroma. Simple but smells good.
    T: Very bready upfront with almost sweet maltiness prominent. Earthy hop presence kicks in at the finish. Dry, refreshing and quite tasty. I really do like the malt bill.
    M: Light body with good tingle on the tongue from still busy carbonation. Not a tongue scrubber but dry, crisp and clean drinking.
    O: Had this once before and completely forgot all about it. Pleasantly surprised to find it’s not all too forgettable. Tasty sharp crisp pilsner that I could drink all night. Well priced and widely available. What’s not to like?

    [Best served in a Footed Pilsner glass]

    Poured a medium hazy yellow with an average sized fizzy head that was mostly lasting and had fair lacing. The aroma was of grain malts, an earthy yeast with a nice blending of flowery hops. It tasted refreshingly bitter and a little acidic from beginning to end with the end having a nice mildly bitter tinge that stayed with you for just a little while. Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a lively carbonation. Overall a great Pilsener, quite drinkable.

    Czech Pilsner and my least favorite of the brews I tried. I'm not sure if it's because it was the last one I tasted or if I am becoming too much of a hophead, but this beer just didn't do anything for me. It was a nice, bright cloudy golden yellow with lots of visible carbonation and carried a great thick, creamy head with good retention, but after that it just went downhill like the Troublette. Under my nose, it came across medicinally sweet but with a faint and bitter powdered sugar corn/banana bread malt tint. Oh yeah, there was some yeast in there, too. Weird, I know. The mouthfeel was definitely on the thicker side, with a lighter flavor - basically all sweet cornbread malt - than the nose. I really wish I had more to end on, but that's about as good as it's going to get for tonight. I'm glad for the experience, as always, but this one would be my last choice at any bar.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, this pilsner is truly a delicious beer in a can. For those who are in search of a rich full bodied pislner vs the traditional watered down alternatives - look no further.

    The beer pours a golden yellow (if you aren't used to the real pilsens out there - you will be shocked how yellow it is). The bite hits you immediately, but the rich flavor lasts and is smooth on the palate. For a beer in a can this is certainly an A in my book.
