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.

Grabbed a couple of cans of this at Merchant's Fine Wine in Dearborn, MI.

Poured into a nonic. Light golden, about a half inch of head that recedes into a thick ring. Some pretty good lacing as well.

Nose is grassy, floral hops, mild sweetness, cracker. Smells like a pilsner.

Tasty pilsner, does what it needs to do and does it well. A bit sweeter than I'd expected. Honey, malt, floral hops, before a clean, bitter hop finish. Moderate carbonation, light bodied, a bit metallic.

Not a bad beer by any stretch, and a good pilsner on a hot day such as this, it hits the spot. However, due to the price tag and lack of availability, I don't think I'll be getting this again for a while. Still, a solid craft brewed canned pils.
