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.

Great classic pale yellow hay color with a little bit of haze to this brew. Good head and a nice residual foam almost all twelve ounces.

Love the grassy hops with some barley field and lightly toasted malts give an aroma of crackers. Smells crisp.

Crackery malts with some unmalted barley grain flavors. Makes me think of eating crackers right after you mowed the lawn. Grass and maybe some lemon from the hops.

This is a crisp, malty, and hoppy pilsner. Crisp, flavorful and easy to drink. A little drym chalky maybe, but refreshing and crisp. Went well with my Thai dinner.

A - Golden pour with a soapy white foam that looks like car wash soap. It is easily a couple of inches high before settling. The lacing is patchy. Slight carbonation noted. Honestly, this looks impressive.

S - Some light grains, light malt, and a slight skunky smell.

T - Fresh flavor that has a crisp crackling of grain. Light yeast profile and a dash of noble hops. There isn't much complexity at all; but this is a pilsener that just does a solid job and is ad advertised.

M - Great mouthfeel, nice balance, and mild carbonation. Leaves a mild raspy grate on the tongue. Easily sessionable and on a hot day would quench your thirst.

O - I'm a fan. This harkens back to a time when beer styles were simple, effective, and enjoyable to drink as a go-to beer. I like this as much as many of its Euro contemporaries.
