Oskar Blues’ trailblazing move to can craft beer has paid off handsomely as rival brewers emulate their model. The cans are certainly a convenience - the highlight of my most recent backpacking trip was dredging several six-packs of Oskar Blues from a nearby lake and enjoying them near a fire. However, my love affair with Oskar Blues is not with their love for aluminum, but the care they put into their beer. Dale’s Pale Ale, Ten Fidy and Old Chub have all been favorites, and more recently I’ve become enamored with the Gubna. However, while excellence is a trend in all these brews, there are places in Oskar Blues’ line-up where I find myself a little disappointed. Their ‘Mama’s Little Yella Pils’ is one of these. It took me a long time to develop a fondness for pilsners, but when I did I was hooked. Despite my conversion, Oskar Blues’ take on the pilsner is less than addicting. It features a clear, crisp pilsner taste, with a mineral aftertaste, but the flavor seems light, and uncharacteristically bland. Dale’s and Old Chub are special and unique, particular to Oskar Blues, and singularly great. The pils fades into obscurity, muddled by its own lack of flavors. It’s a pilsner, sure, and drinkable, sure, but not memorable.

Poured from Can into half pint tulip
A - pours a yellow colour with a medium white head with excellent retention
S - floral hops, pilsner malt, hints of fresh grass and some bread
T - starts with an initial floral/pine hop hit followed by sweet malts and more floral notes. Excellent.
M - very smooth, crisp and refreshing. Finishes medium dry
