Draught @ Mikro: This one pours a light straw yellow color. There was almost no white head on it, but still left some lacing. It has a pretty typical pilsener nose: lighter malts, some grassy and earthy hops. It also has a nice taste. Medium-light bodied, just enough of a grassy/earthy hop bite to it. A good Pils!

First American craft in a can, and a very good one. Mama's Little Yella Pils is indeed yellow, with slight amber overtones. Plenty of head and carbonation. Lacing sticks to the side of the glass like a bullldog. Nice grassy malt aroma, almost the floral characteristics of an ale. I really like the taste and feel of this - it is a pleasure to drink. It's got the spiciness of the hops with the mouthfeel of great malt. Fits squarely in the great tradition of German and Czech beer - maybe a little hoppier, but really not too much. I'm looking forward to more Oskar Blues brews after this one.

12oz can poured into pilsener glass.

A - Clear straw yellow with lots of bubbles and a big frothy white head.

S - Bright grassy hops with just a bit of malty sweetness.

T - Flavorful hops dominant this brew, with a slight grainy malt backbone to balance things out. There is a noticeable spicy hop bite in the finish.

M - Light-medium in body, crisp and smooth, high carbonation.

O - Very enjoyable pilsener, one of the better examples I've had. Cool can/label too.

Thin head without much lacing on a dark state colored hazy body. Aroma is light, mostly grain and musty hops. Flavor is musty ask semisweet hops with biscuit and grain. Aftertaste is a touch bitter. Light body and high carbonation. Crisp. Overall better than most pilsners but not likening the aftertaste.

Got this on tap at proof, poured into a pint glass.

Poured a clear golden yellow, could see some bubbles rising, with a very tiny head on it. Smelled of some slight hops and maybe a bit of malt. not much past the hops. Tasted a bit sweet upfront finishing with hops throughout. Was fairly thin, and carbonated. Maybe a bit watery. Overall was pretty good. Not the best Pils Ive had but one I wouldnt mind having.

Finally a chance to have this beer when it's NOT on the shelf for more than 4 months! Into a tall pilsner style glass you go. Canned Jan 2nd 2012, CANPOCALYPSE!

Off the pour a nice light and meringue like white head with some foamy retention, some good staying power here. Body color has some cola like rising carbonation but super crystal clear and mirror like appearance.

Stinky grass on the nose, who farted? Did I just say that? Yeah I did. But after sometime some dry crisp malt comes through. The first whiff was quite rank though. More of a bakery white dough comes out after some time. Small hint of spritzyness too.

Taste matches some of the crisp malt and hop like presence a bit, but also is a bit neutral. Earthy like presence, but with a great crisp mouthfeel and body. Faint white bread dough toasted, but mostly just, a real light flavor. Gets more noticeable halfway through consumption

Overall it's kind of odd for a pilsner even for a Czech it seems to miss some flavor punch. But it's pretty easy drinking and it does taste alright, and gets better as you go along.
