Roughtail Little Blue Pils Review

Name: Roughtail Little Blue Pils
Style: Pilsner
ABV: 5%
IBUs: 26

Well I've finished up my Georgia craft beer package and now I'm moving another one! This time, I have a beer mail from Oklahoma that I got for a Bell's Beer package. So to start things off, I'm going to take a look at Little Blue Pils from Roughtail Brewing, based out of Midwest City, OK.

The label itself is kind of cleaver, with the music pairings for this beer include: You Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC, Let's Get It On by Marvin Gaye, and My Neck My Back by Khia. The tagline proclaims "Say Goodbye To A Reptile Dysfunction" and it goes on to say that there's some "stiff competition" for the attention of craft beer lovers and that this beer will make your palate "rise to new levels of excitement and will satisfy you for longer than 4 hours."


Appearance - Fairly clear yellow color with a mild amount of visible carbonation. The head is nice and foamy and the lacing is also quite abundant.

Aroma - Pilsner malts with some mild citrus/mango hoppiness and lager yeasts. Nothing terribly complex here but it smells good

Taste - Pilsner malts and lager yeasts on the front of the palate while the back opens up to some mild but noticeable citrus hops with just a touch of melon. The aftertaste is on the drier side, save for some light lager yeasts and citrus sweetness.

I can't really say this......excites my palate tenfold, but what we have here is a solid pilsner and one I can see being a crowd pleaser at the very least. As such, it certainly doesn't hurt to check this out as it's got a good flavor and a rather crisp feel.

Roughtail Little Blue Pils - 8/10
