999. Mama's Little Yella Pils

I 'm not sure if this is a new release from Oskar Blues, or one I just haven't seen before. I bought a six-pack at Downtown Wine & Spirits earlier this week, and I had this beer on Saturday (April 4th). I served it in my Cambridge Brewing Company pint glass.

Pours a lightly hazed golden color. Topped by a fluffy, bright white head that fades to a film, leaving patchy lace. The aroma is a bit light overall, but there are notes of graininess and a bit of leafy hops.

Lightly sweet pilsner malts appear upfront and persist through the center of this beer. The finish has a good bit of leafy, hop bitterness, especially as the beer warms. A hint of apple fruitiness also appears towards the finish as the beer warms. Light-bodied and moderately carbonated with a crisp, dry finish.

A bit disappointing, especially from this brewery, but overall a drinkable pilsner with a good amount of bitterness. This beer definitely got better as it warmed.
