It’s been awhile since I settled on a couple pilsners. I find most of them to be rather boring when you consider what the beer game has become. Some people argue that the pilsner is a classic method to brew beer and I shouldn’t dump on it, but this site is about opinions about beer and that just happens to be my opinion about the pilsner category. Collectively, let’s make it a challenge to the brewers out there to put out some more interesting pilsners and change that perception!
Now that I’ve cr@pped on the category, let’s dig in. Green Bench Brewing Co. has impressed me in the past so I grabbed their Postcard Pils as a change of pace for my taste buds. Up against it, I grabbed Oskar Blues Brewery’s Mama’s Little Yella Pils. Love the name guys, well done!

Tell us about it
As I suspected at the point of purchase, the pilsner still doesn’t do much for me. I’m open to new experiences, and no regrets about dueling these two beers, but that challenge to the brewers of the world stands.
As for the duel, the Oskar Blues Mama’s Little Yella Pils was slightly less bland than the Greenbench Postcard Pils. Nothing really exciting about either, but the taste through finish with Mama’s Little Yella Pils was slightly more flavorful. That’s about all I can say about it, moving on.
