I'm not a huge Pilsner fan. The beer is well made and appropriate for its style however. It has that what I would describe as German malt taste to it. It pours really nice leaving a one inch head that lasts for a while. Definitely not a style I would get again from that brewery, but I would like to try other beers they make.

355 mL can picked up across the border; served well-chilled. This can was bought as a single, and is getting a little old (dated Aug. 5 2013).

Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow colour, topped with nearly two fingers of frothy, billowing white head. Excellent retention, with the slowly-receding foam depositing a loose curtain of sticky lace over the next few minutes. The aroma is clean and grassy, with pale grain malts and crackery sweetness. Inviting, and appropriate.

Definitely one of the tastier pilseners I've had in recent memory. Clean barley malt flavour; pale and grainy, taking on a sweeter, breadier flavour as it sits on the palate. Lemony, grassy hop notes complete the profile, which finishes on a spicy high point. Slight bitterness in the aftertaste, which doesn't linger long. Light-bodied, with firm carbonation levels that deliver a good bite; an excellent companion for the hops used. Crisp, refreshing, and extremely sessionable.

Final Grade: 3.93, a superb B+. Keeping in mind that I probably enjoy pale lagers a little more than the average BA, Mama's Little Yella Pils is an excellent one that should be considered a must-try for pils fans the world over. This one nails what I like about the style, while offering just a little more hop kick than some of the lesser Czech imports. Not an attention-grabber, but still a very solid session brew that I plan to enjoy again at some point in the future.

From a can with a couple of months age on it. I'll need to revisit, I admit.

Fluffy, airy light pale white head over a pale, straw-colored liquid.

Sweet biscuity malts over a floral and grassy hop aroma. Overall on the sweet side smell-wise.

Pungent bready and biscuity. Sweet almost suggests honey. Taste is a bit stale and/or old due to age of the can.

Light and drinkable. Sweet but not cloying. Slight offtastes affect the palate a bit but could be age-related.

I like it despite some dings but should really judge it nice and fresh.

Have to hand it to Oskar Blues for always coming out with neat cans.

Being a pils this obviously is a light brew

The German and pale malts mix quite well with the Bavarian hops.
This is a great lite,heavily carbonated,solid brew.

Great for Spring/Summer--so excited for this warm weather finally!!
