5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
I rated this beer so high because the ratings here were beyond unfair. Maybe many of the users should seek out a tap house that holds this beer on tap and try it that way before rating so harshly. The Aroma was clean, appearance was golden and the head was perfect. I think the head was great in part to the beer system being used at this restaurant. I asked the Owner about the great head and he said "Attivo Pizzeria and Bar is using a high quality chiller looping with the beer lines that keeps the beer in the lines cool so they pour at 35 degrees and the tech helped blend the beer co2 was one of the best." When considering Oskars other beers I can taste a similarity of a quality product & technique.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours yellow with a fluffy white head. Smells crisp, bitter, and lightly malted. Tastes sweet with a touch of lager bitterness. Medium-bodied with a slick, almost watery, texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Oskar Blues Mama’s Little Yella Pils finishes with a faint, lingering sweetness.

4.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Easily one of my favorite beers of all time. I would also argue to say that this may be the finest American Pilsner.
This beer was made for cans. Though I am drinking it in an area that isn’t known for frequent "Craft Pils" turnover, and is 2,000 miles away from their brewery, the beer always tastes fresh.
Not much for aroma, but I don’t expect too much from this style. Certainly more of an original Czech style, noble hops forward, but a firm grain presence.
This is shockingly reminiscent of Augustiner Brau’s Edelstoff malt bill. Not unlike a fine Alsacian Grand Cru Gawurztraminer with some age, the implication of sweet, round fruit is abound in the mid palate, only to finish dry, as if the sugar was never there.
That duality is the mark of a truly fine product. And mama’s is showing it in glorious form.

Not sure why this beer does not get better ratings. This is one of my favs. Easy drinking and smooth, with a bit of a hoppy bite after. Great everyday brew.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
*Appearance:* slightly hazy blond, with a nice, two-finger fluffy white head and decent lacing. *Aroma:* slightly sweet, slightly toasted cereal (golden grahams?), well-balanced by a waft of peppery, grassy hops. *Taste:* as the aroma indicates; flavors are excellently balanced between the appealing light sweetness of the malts, and the spicy and aromatic bitterness of the hops. *Finish:* smooth, crisp, clean, and lasting a respectably long time for the style. *Notes:* Absolutely wonderful example of the style. Palate was wonderful--carbonation was efffervescent and slightly prickly, yet somehow also restrained and smooth. Flavors, appearance, and aroma were also great. Could drink this every day and twice on Sundays.

A delicious version of the style, lots of corn, malted barley, and grassy flavor and aroma. Brilliant yellow body under a bright white thin head, Delicious.

can. Poured a nice, slightly golden yellow, with a very nice white frothy head on it. Smells of tree nuts, distinct yeast aromas, hints of grass and earthiness,along with hops, and malt. The beer really through me with the mouth feel, which was very full and almost creamy, but crisp and short like a pilsner should be. It had flavors of banana bread (as it warmed), some sort of nut, good malt and grain also. Because it was not as thin as most pils are i really enjoyed this beer.

This one reminds me of the Narragansett lager I had previously. It’s not as good but still a nice light beer. Very hoppy towards the finish.

I wish I understood raters talking about hops in this beer. I found this to be utterly malt-driven, hugely malty, in fact, and without any noticeable hop flavors or aromas. And that was fine. Frankly, this seemed a lot more like a Dortmunder, given its weight and malt focus. Great stuff.

In its style, I don’t think you’ll find a better beer. I do wish it had a little more aroma, but it has a decent complexity to its taste, while still having that great crisp/clean pilsner feel. Great on a hot day, this one goes down easy, one after another.
