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.

This pours a hazy, yellow/amber color with a fluffy white head. It has a mild scent of grains and yeast giving it a unique pilsner aroma. The taste is different to say the least with the use of several kinds of hops to give a distinctive bitterness along with a very floral tasting element as well. This is a little thinner/ more watery than most of the standard Oskar Blues products. Finishes with a minor bitter and chalky after taste.
