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.

Again, Im a Pilsner fan and Ive met very few I didnt like. This is my first tasting of mamas and the first thing I noticed is the smell. Not bad but different. As has been said a little grassy. But I enjoyed smelling it. Taste is a bit light even for a Pilsner, but, certainly as refreshing as a Pilsner. I wouldnt call it "bland" by no means. It has a nice, lasting, grainy after taste.

Pours nice. The head is a bit flat but the beer sure doesnt taste like its been lost on a shelf to long. Like all Pilsners its a thing of beauty to hold up to the light. I agree its a bit light on carbonation but the taste delivers.

I bought a 6 pack due to the raves by my Beer guy. Im not sure its all that but i would buy and drink it again. Most of all now as my first is almost done and Im tasting that lovely grain after taste settle in. This is a nice Pils.

But I Love Pils. :-)
