3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a large, white, frothy head. Clear, golden body. Spicy, herbal, noble hop aroma with underlying grainy/bready malt. Flavor is full of spicy hops held up by a sunny, summery Pilsener malt backbone. Light, smooth body. Malty sweet up front with a clean, crisp, lightly bitter finish. Lively carbonation. Overall a straightforward, simple, delicious Pilsener. Well done.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can pours a crystal clear goldenrod body with a large vanilla head. Spicy and grassy hop aroma. Taste has a floral and spicy hop bitterness that is balanced by biscuity malt that has a hint of honey sweetness. One of the better American brewed pilsners I’ve run across.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours slightly coludy for a pilnser beer. Small white head, Saaz hops on the nose does not overpower the the Pilsner malt. A good attempt at the Czech Pils stlye, a little on the thin side of the style, woth $8.99 a 6/pk

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Earthy bitterness in the nose with a spritz of citrus. Clear golden pour with slow-moving, long-lasting carbonation and a large, clinging frothy white head. Watery body is malt-forward and smooth, taste just dripping with woody, bready Saaz, with the grassier and floral components off to the side. Mildly bittersweet with a bit of spice kicking up dust at the back. Simple, straightforward malt pillow of a beer (which is to say, an achievement for an American pils).

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Excited about this new release from Oskar Blues. They make some fantastic beers. Pours a hazy gold with a thick white head. Looks like liquid gold, very inviting. Aroma is soft with breadiness, light hops, and honey. Drinks very smooth and refreshing. Notes of honey, biscuit, and light hops. A great beer for a summer day. Very well balanced and recommended. Not bad at all.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
8/24/2009: Oskar Blues Mama’s Little Yella Pils... Aroma: Appearance: Opaque shiny gold color with a frothy slightly off-white head; sporadic lacing. Flavor: Good balance of of Pils malt and spicy and grassy hops, mild to moderate bitterness; slightly sweeter (slightly reminiscent of honey comb) than most Pils and not quite as crisp in the finish, but still really good. Palate: Medium-bodied, very smooth, soft mouthfeel, filling. Overall: I like it. This is a Pils that anybody could drink and enjoy... from a can!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can with born on date 8/2/09. pours hazed golden with white head. a sweet grainy aroma with some floral and herbal hop notes. the sweet grainy notes are present in the initial flavor but some pleasant herbal and spicy hops dry this out nicely. This tasted a bit better on tap at the brewery earlier today but it works on a hot summer day when you are just looking for something refreshing.
