I'm still in the midst of my Whole 30 (woohoo day 17!), but I tried this beer back at the end of April. Oddly enough, my co-host Sarah tried out an Oscar Blues beer for her first Food & Beer Friday! I love a good pilsner! My first featured beer was Victory Prima Pils (which also means I'm quickly approaching the one year birthday of Food & Beer Friday!). Spring is finally peaking through, which means we're on the brink pilsner season!
Oscar Blues Mama's Little Yellow Pils is a smooth pilsner. It's brewed like a traditional Czech pilsner with German malts and hops. Unlike Prima Pils, it's not very hoppy but still lends some of the hop bittnerness that comes with the beer style. It's definitely a light beer that I would suggest for those who want to transition from those boring "lite" beers to something in the craft beer realm (read: with flavor!).
If I was drinking while doing Whole 30, I would have paired this beer with these Paleo/Whole 30 Asian Meatballs (I subbed venison since it works for my flexitarian rules). They're not spicy, and Mama's Little Yellow Pils would wash them down perfectly!
Tell me, do you have a favorite pilsner? Then head on over and check out what beer Sarah has picked for today! (And don't forget to link up any beer, drink, or food post from the week!)
