Our new canned good is a delicious, small-batch version of the beer that made Pilsen, Czechoslovakia famous. Mama’s is made with hearty amounts of pale malt, German specialty malts, and traditional (Saaz) and 21st century Bavarian hops. It’s the perfect antidote for the watered-down, cornfed versions of pilsner clogging America’s shelves. Our first canned lager, it’s also fermented at cool temperatures with a German yeast. While it’s rich with Czeched-out flavor, Mama’s gentle hopping (about 35 IBUs) and low ABV (just 5.3%) makes it a luxurious but low-dose beer. Look for our Gold Metal Winner on US shelves in March. Sadly, the Feds rejected our “Take Two and Call Us in the Morning” line on the can.

    355 ml can, from Vinmonopolet Jørpeland. ABV is 5.3%. Pale golden colour, moderate white head. Fairly nice grassy and herbal aroma. The flavour is a tad too sweet for my liking, but still fairly crisp due to decent hops. Hints of honey and herbs.

    Enjoyed at Todd English in Vegas. Pours a light golden colour with a white cap and good lacing. Hoppy nose aromas. Also hoppy tasting with some grain in the finish. Balanced bitterness and dryness. A nice American pils.

    Aroma is sazz hops with light citric and malty tones. Bright golden body topped off by a bubbly pure white head that left thin sheets of lace. Mouthfeel is crisp medium bodied. Flavor is grainy with some grassy and lemon coming through as well.

    Pours a typical, slightly hazy yellow with a nice, fluffy, barely off-white head. Normally this is a turn-off for me, but since this is a pilsner I’ll accept this as good. Aroma is malty and slightly fruity, not strong but still appealing. Rich flavor fills the mouth with malt, as well as hints of hops and pear. Lively, fizzy texture leaves behind a fairly persistent tingle. This is probably my favorite among all of the pilsners I have tried.

    I had this at the River & Rail Resturant in Roanoke, VA. This was a nice beer but it wasn't outstanding in any way. Big thing for me and pilsners is clarity and this particular can poured a beer with a slight haze. The flavors were grass and hops.

    Refreshing. Clean, crisp with a light malt profile and subtle hops. A little strong hop profile would have been welcomed. Nice beer.

    At first the nose (and the fact that its in a can) remind me of hot days in the late 50's when my dad would finish mowing the lawn and pop open a frosty can of Hamms, the Beer Refreshing. The nose soon mellows out its grassy, a touch of citrus and a hint of a sour note. True to its name this beer pours a pale, slightly fogged, yellow body with a decent head that is moderate-lasting and leaves decent lace and a nice skim coat. The mouth is medium and perhaps a hair under-carbonated. .... I was so hoping for a good flavor (yeah I bought a six.) The flavor is off. The finish is too sour and there is a hint of chalkiness to the finish. The middle is sweetish in a fruity way, flavoring hops I suspect although it could be the yeast. Another gulp, this would be an OK brew on a hot day if not for that finish, its a bit chemically as well, I almost taste the can. Better then macro-swill? Sure! Close to being an interesting and drinkable beer? Sure! Wrong for its supposed style? Absolutely! RERATE :7/25 2014 Maybe I got a bad can, I am liking this now. Flavor is a bit complex, grassy herbal notes, hint of lemon, clean finish, quite hoppy, not chemical as in first tasting.

    pours a pale gold color with a big bubbly, white head with decent retention and some patchy lacing. The aroma has a nice malt aroma with grainy, bready, and cereal notes. There are some spicy and somewhat floral hop aromas here, too. Really nice pilsner aroma. The taste is pretty much follows the aroma with sweet bready and grainy malts followed by smoothly bitter, spicy, and earthy hops. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with great carbonation, a slightly creamy but also refreshing and slightly bitter, spicy, and dry finish.

    About as "yella" as I've seen (truth in naming) with a good head on its shoulders. Lemon and honey aroma, hay and grass with a touch of bitter bread yeastiness. Corny sweet and yeasty bitter flavor: not unpleasant, not great. Wet at first and then drying. The carbonation is a little too big and sharp. I was hoping for more from OB, but it's decent overall.
