Split a can of this last night. Thank God I split it, because I couldn't drink all of this.
Poured a fair enough golden yellow, smelling like hops, malt, and yeast. Innocuous enough.
But the taste. Oh, the taste. Sort of had floral-y notes to me....if they were incredibly stale. Every drink of this almost made me vomit, and I couldn't shake it. Ugh.
Typical carbonation, I guess.
Overall, one of the worst beers I've ever had. I mean, if people like it, go for it. Maybe this style just doesn't work for me.

This was unfortunately a s***product.
Smell-smelled like methane. I thought someone had released air from their rearend but alas it was my pint of beer I just received.
I do not know if this was a very old keg, but this was worse than a mass market beer.

Not impressed- big letdown here! Czech Pils, no way! No where near a Euro Pils. Buttery adjunct laden flavors & smells. Absolutely terrible & not up to OB's normal quality. Was all ready for a crisp hoppy Pils but this is nothing more than Schmidt's from Colorado. no hoppy aromas no hoppiness in the flavor & hardly anything impressive here- AVOID lovers of good beer. What were they thinking???

Overall, this is a beer I do not like, do not prefer, and do no tthink is all that good. Not meaning to slam Oskar Blues at all, there are many, many of their beers I like, and I have toured the brewery line in Colorado two times...just not a fan of this beer...at all.
Pours a yellow/golden hue with a moderate foamy white head.
Smell and taste are of corn and wheat, clean almost plasticy tasting...
Mouthfeel is foamy...sudzy and somewhat thick...not really appealing at all....
Overall, not a good beer..lacks depth, flavor and taste....

Cloudy yellow color. "Smells like crap" spoken by my wife. Not sure that this beer really works for my tastes. Very bitter aftertaste. Doesn't feel great in my mouth. This will likely be my only Little Yella Pils. I better go get another mystery beer to wash this down.

12 ounce can poured into a shaker pint. Hazy gold body with a fluffy 2-finger white head that recedes to a skim fairly quickly, but in the process leaves some nice sticky lacing in thte top quarter of the glass.
Smells almost like an American adjunct lager. Very tame nose, with little to be found in the way of noble hops. Gentle malt sweetness, slightly vegetal.
Taste is sadly in synch with the nose. If I were tasting this blind, I'd honestly be guessing adjunct lager as the style. Loads of corn sweetness with a moderate underlying current of noble hop flavor and bitterness. Only a smooth and thick feel- again, totally out of place for the style- separates it from being the big brother of Hamm's (which happens to be one of my favorite 'fizzy yellow beers').
Overall impression: This would rocket to the top of my rankings of adjunct lagers, but as a pilsner it's very disappointing. Mama needs to go back to the drawing board.
