Oskar Blues Mama’s Little Yella Pils

Oskar Blues Mama’s Little Yella Pils: A Super Bowl party is to beer as the big game itself is to Roman numerals, so here’s some advice for what to keep in the cooler. While Oskar Blues was originally brewed in Colorado, they’ve got a spot in North Carolina now, too, so this beer will please fans with either rooting interest.

The clever name is a play on Pilsner, a classic German lager style that favors malt over hops flavors. So that makes this a light but far-from-lite beer, a pour that won’t bitterly break your taste buds but will still give you that pleasing beer feeling. At 5.3 percent ABV, it’s not really a session beer, but you can drink a few without falling over when you high-five a fellow fan.

Plus Oskar Blues was early on the microbrew can trend, so it’s easier to clean up, or mash an empty into your head in frustration if your team loses.
