Oskar Blue's Mama's Little Yellow Pils is brewed in the same fashion as the original Bohemian Pilsner, and is classified as such, winning a silver medal at the 2011 Great American Beer Festival. Mama's pours a clean, yellow straw color, and is capped with one-inch of white foam which leaves a sticky lace around the glass. Aromas of sweet maltiness, and spicy Saaz hops dominate the nose, and some spice and grass hints are noticeable as well. Rich malt flavors blend well with a somewhat restrained sweetness, excellent level of balance achieved here, with notes of spice lingering in the back of the mouth. This brew features a medium body and medium amount of carbonation, both of which help lead to the amazing crispness. Although they did win the Silver at the GABF, we like to think of this as a Gold Metal Winner.

Displayed a sparkling apple juice looking body and color. Finger high head who's presence was short and suprising.

Smells of corn,biscuit, lemon zest and a small wet cardboard aroma which is almost common for Pilsner's. Corn, biscuit, sweet sugar and a bite of zest and not much else on the taste. Simple, but suprisingly tasty and refreshing for this style. Good mouth feel with a clean finish.

Overall: Not much else to say about this beer but its definately a good semi "transition" beer as it walks the line between craft beer and a mass production brew. I wouldn't mind handing one of these to a Bud Light drinking buddy and telling him that this is what cheeper beer should taste like.

Pours a crystal clear banana yellow with a small, quickly dissipating white head. Bouquet of lemon hard candy in a glass bowl. Well-carbonated with an average moutfeel. Mild, almost ripe banana and bready. Nice, pilsner bitter finish. Decent, middle of the road pilsner.

Poured from can into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a light yellow – straw color with a big white head and a little bit of haze. The billowy head has a decent amount of retention and gives way to a moderate level of lacing.

Smell – There is a somewhat tangy and malty aroma that is the most pertinent. There are also some lighter notes of lemon.

Taste- A nice bready and biscuit flavor met the tongue. It has a slight sweetness of lighter fruits mixed in with the breadiness. The hop tastes are light but there is some lemon hop flavor that becomes evident in the middle of the taste and mixes well with the malty flavors. These flavors take the taste to the end.

Mouthfeel – The mouthfeel is quite full for an only 5.3 % abv beer. It really was quite creamy and coated the tongue quite nicely. The carbonation was moderate and really helped accentuate the creamy body.

Overall – The taste and mouthfeel of this beer are quite fantastic. This is a nice tasty easy drinking brew.
