Oskar Blues Lil’ Yella’ Pils

Are all pilsners the same? Definitely NO! Oskar Blues breaks the mold on pilsner and makes a bold Bohemian-style brew called Oskar Blues Mama’s Little Yella Pils. This gently hopped (35 IBU) pilsner has been around in cans since early 2009 and dares you to think that this is a common lager.

Oskar Blues’ Mama’s Little Yella Pils is an uncompromising, small-batch version of the beer that made Pilsen, Czech Republic, famous. Unlike mass market “pilsners” diluted with corn & rice, Mama’s is built with 100% pale malt, German specialty malts, and Saaz hops. While its rich with Czeched-out flavor, its gentle hopping (35 IBUs) and low ABV (just 5.3%) make it a luxurious but low-dose (by Oskar Blues standards) refresher.

Mama’s Little Yella Pils pours a clear bright yellow color with a nice big white head. A rich aroma of lemon, grass and biscuity malts is where Mama’s Little Yella Pils distinguishes itself from a normal pilsner. The Bavarian hops leave a fresh scent in the glass. The beer is medium bodied with a lot of bitter sweet malts up front on the tongue followed by a lemony pilsner taste.


ABV: 5.3%
Bitterness (IBUs): 35
