Style: Bohemian Pilsener

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Mama's Little Yella Pils - Our upcoming new canned good is a small-batch version of the beer that made Pilsen, Czechoslovakia famous. Mama's is made with hearty amounts of pale malt, German specialty malts, and a blend of traditional (Saaz) and 21st century Bavarian hops. Our first canned lager, it's also fermented at cool temperatures with a German yeast.

This tasteful reality Czech is the perfect antidote for the watered-down versions of pilsner clogging Americaâ's shelves. And Mama's gentle hopping (about 35 IBUs) and low ABV (just 5.3%) mean we're finally honoring consumer requests for a delicious but less-challenging beer. (Hey, we like a good low-dose session beer, too.) Look for our Gold Metal Winner on US shelves in March.

Sadly, the Feds rejected our Take Two and Call Us in the Morning line on the can.

Pours golden wheat with thick head that stays. Good lacing. Smells mostly light malt. Tastes a little straw and citrusy hops. Creamy and well carbonated. Overall a good beer but a little hoppy for a Pilsner for me. That’s not a bad thing though. More flavor than expected.

It's beer. I use this as a cool down beer. It's good.

This pours like a traditional decent lager; similar in both color and lacing, with a full dose of tiny bubbles. I smell yeast, like sour dough. It has a nice, moderate fizz and full mouth feel. It tastes slightly bitter and malty - very crisp, refreshing and satisfying. A premium regular beer.

L: Light yellow with mild carbonation. Small head left quick, light sticky lace. Went from big carb bubbles to small bubbles.
S: Very slight, candy like scent. Like Smartees candy? Nothing like a "beer".
F: Light on the tongue. Clean swallow. Slight burn to let you know this is indeed a beer.
T: The lightness of this and the dryness from the hops spells pils. Grain and alcohol. I really don't have any other flowery language for this. It is a Pils. It's a taste only a Pils has. Standard of the style if maybe a little lighter on flavor.
O: I've now purchased this a few times. It's not my favorite style, but this IS one of my favorite Pils. Great with pizza and football when I'd rather have something to wash spicy food rather than a bulldozer of other flavors to distract.

19.2oz Stovepipe canned on 10-21-18
Big 1 1/2" head on a clean, pale golden lager. Long retention and sudsy lace. Looks great.
Sweet pilsner malt, hay, bready with a big perfume of spicy hops mingling throughout.
Lightly bready malt flavors upon entry followed quickly by the spicy Saaz hops that dry the finish out thoroughly.
Soft, light bodied mouthfeel. Medium-high carbonation. Clean with medium length and bitterness.
Nice pilsner, this is a very good American version that is widely available and should be relatively easy to find fresh.
4.7% abv = crushable.

LOOKS: A fairly clear, light golden, with a 2 finger foam that lasts, and leaves a nice lacing.
AROMA: Grass, sun seeds, cracker bread malt.
TASTE: Same deal, very clean tasting.
FEEL: Average carbonation, maybe a little less, medium thin body, a little slick.
OA: Clean tasting, not quite carbonated enough for me, for this style.
