Breakfast Beer Tasting: Oskar Blues Mama's Little Yella Pils

This morning I’m in need of a pick me up. So we voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to the land of the free in search of inspiration. And who better than Oskar Blues to refresh the palate. The Colorado brewery is one of the stars of the American brewing scene and has a reputation for delivering well-rounded tasty brews. This Pils has been produced on their in-house experimental brew plant.
It’s a 12oz can and comes in at 5.3%. It poured a clean golden yellow with good carbonation and a large white head. The aroma was subtle but inviting.There’s a good mix of malt, lemon and floral grass in there. The beer itself was light-medium bodied with no hint of its strength. A very balanced combination of lemon, biscuit malt and just enough Saaz hop to give it a slightly dry edge.

Tyson says: Excellent. Shows that smooth doesn’t have to be a dirty word. Clean, crisp and satisfying.
