Oscar Blues Brewery Mama’s Little Yellow Pils: As the name implies, this beer is yellow. There is a slight haze, and mellow carbonation. The head is ample and fine, with good lacing. And the aroma is bountiful and complex. So far pretty impressive for what has come out of the can. Flavor is even more impressive, smooth malt is punctuated by a tasty hop layers. The Mama’s Little Yellow Pils is well balanced and refreshing. Here again, Oscar Blues has a winner.

Poured from a 12oz can into a 12oz mug

I bottom opened this one, and let me tell you, for sitting in the fridge for a week, it sure as heck nearly exploded when opening with a sharp can opener.

After the near-explosion, it poured a very hazy yellow, with little head

Smells of cereal grains and soap. Tastes the same.

After about half of the 12ozer, I start to notice a soapy after taste, although it then turns to a surprising hop note.

For a one-time taste, I'd give this a C. It's trying really hard to be the ultimate pilsner, but not quite accomplishing it. Has too much of an ale-like presence to be a true pils.

A- straw gold with a touch of hazyness in it. Maybe some light wheat in here? Has a lasting one inch white head with moderate lacing. Looks a little heftier than your pops' premium lager from the 60's.

S- there is this kinda off uriny smell at first. Once you get past that, there's some good spicy hoppyness and subtle crackery grain aroma. Maybe a touch of lemon peel smell?

T- spicy, noble hops are big in this beer. They are pronounced and steal the show. As expected, there's some light buttered cracker flavor and perhaps some cereal grain. Not any alcohol. Pretty good for an Americanized pils.

M- a little fuller body than expected. Pretty heavy carbonation and a dry finish. Really nice mouthfeel. Not too thin but still can put a few away and not be stuffed.

O- this is one of my favorite american made lagers. While pilsners aren't exactly my preffered style, this one holds its own with good light grain and noble hop flavor and a moderately full finish.
