Served from the can into a pint glass...

Pours a clear golden yellow with active carbonation. 1-2 fingers of white foam build quickly on an aggressive pour. Head dwindles down to decent lacing and a foam cap. Also a little sticky foam on the glass.

Smells of hops, grains, hay and the slightest citrus.

First taste... hops bitterness, bread dough, lemon and then a grain finish.

Smooth mouthfeel, light body with the carbonation a little on the high side. It finished dry for me with a bitter aftertaste.

Overall, this is a pretty decent pils but I don't think it stands out enough for me to get all excited over it. It would definitely be a good summer or session brew though if you're in the mood. First one of Oskar Blues' beers I've had and I'm looking forward to tasting the others.

Cheers!

Mama's Little Yella Pils is a crystal clear yellow with just a tinge of orange. Pours a moderate/large head with good retention and leaves moderate lacing. Smells of fresh cut grass, grain, floral, and wet hay.

Taste starts with grain, then bread dough, with a crisp floral finish with a hint of tangerine.
Mouthfeel is light with high carbonation. A bit too creamy in my opinion, takes away from some of the crispness.

Nice Pils, nothing crazy, and no reason for me to buy this all the time, but it is real damn refreshing.

When I think Pilsner I think terrible beer, skunky euro beer or else beer pong. I haven't seriously ordered a pilsner at a bar unless it was Grain Belt or else they had a super cheap deal going on. In college the pilsner reigns supreme because of how cheap it goes for and how incredibly drinkable it is. Once you find out that you don't have to have 6 of something to have a good time you become more open to better offerings.

Appearance: Golden carbonation. It actually has color!!

Smell: Fresh and grainy.

Taste: Front of the tongue has a nice bitter taste, back of the tongue has a little bite.

Mouthfeel: Super drinkable but still carries a little weight.

Overall: Best pilsner I've ever had. Honestly. I'm really happy with this beer.
