Wasn't immediately impressed with the look and smell of this Pilsner...but once I started drinking it improved greatly! Lot's of taste for a beer that, on the surface, doesn't appear much better than a Bud Light. Will definitely drink again if I see it on the menu

To be honest, Polestar comes out ofthe bottle not much better than a miller light, although with an much more impressive head; at it's peak, about 2 fingers deep of soapy foam. Very, very pale strw yellow and perfect clarity. Smell is an intoxicating bend of flowery hoppiness, spicy notes, and toasty cracker malt aromas. Smell is quite powerful, I can get some hints with the glass just on the table under my nose. Impressive!

Wow, that taste, true pilsner. Light, crisp, alive and very, very good. Lots of complex hops characteristics, with flower pedals, mild bitterness, faint white pepper and all on a firm base of high-quality malts of which I'm afraid I cannot name one by one. Very easy to drink, just begging to quaffed. Mouthfell is just about perfect. Smooth carbonation, with just the right amount of heft to avoid being too "lite" beer like.

Very impressive true pilsner from Left Hand. Tasty and easy to drink, what more to you want from the style??Two thumbs way up. Prost!

I've had this from tap several times. It tastes somewhere between a PA and a pils and it works really well. It's refreshing and full flavored. Try it.

Rather unique for an American Pilsner being that it is not pasteurized. It does give it a fresh flavor but its relatively iffy because its not that full flavored of a beer.

I had this poured into a Pilsner glass. The color was a straw-gold, transparent. Just the look you want from a Pilsner. I didn't get the fruit flavors that others have spoken of in here, found it a bit watery. Nose is nothing of note, mouthfeel wasn't too heavy, not a ton of carbonation. Slightly above average pils.

5/22/13 At Rattle N Hum, NYC, on tap. Hoppier than this un-hoppy guy likes, but not a total skeeve. Once is enough.
