Oskar Blues Mama's Little Yella Pils
Mama's Little Yella Pils, a canned pilsner offering from Oskar Blues, poured a transparent gold into the glass with light carbonation an a small, bright white head. The nose was fairly standard for a pilsner, with maybe a bit more peppery noble hops and apple detectable than is style-typical.
Oskar Blues Mama's Little Yella Pils opened with notes of crisp apple and a soft rind bitterness. The center was very dry and malty, and there were hints of corn in the background. The pilsner ended on an extended dry fade with a bit of the bitterness coming back through.
Although the pilsner style isn't something I go to often, Oskar Blues Mama's Little Yella Pils is the one I go to when I need to scratch the itch. It's fresh tasting, light, and always cold.
