Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine July 2007.

A good part of Polestar's authentic appeal comes from the award-winning Weyermann Pilsner Malt that Left Hand uses. This beer has also has a great blend of Perle, Vanguard and Saaz hops. Very pale golden-yellow hue. Clarity is perfect, with lots of tiny bubbles racing to the top. Impeccable head retention, as two fingers froth stick all the way down to the bottom of the glass. Light and fluffy biscuity malt aroma, as well as spicy, grassy hops in the nose. The crispness is so embedded and the smoothness so laid-back, it's incredibly refreshing. Fresh, biscuity malt flavor throughout--simple yet perfect. The grassy hop bitterness is not abrasive in any way, actually comple- menting and balancing out the beer very well. Suggestions of grape skin appear, minimal but persistent. Dry finish with a spicy hop and a clean graininess that lingers.

By far one of the best and most drinkable lagers brewed in the US today; one that gives the German Pilsners a real run for their money--and not on freshness alone. A heaping bowl of piping-hot chili verde will do the trick for a pairing.
