500ml bottle, the latest offering to reach Alberta's beer stores from this heretofore unknown, and still damned remote, brewer. The name is a tribute to the polar bear, a few of which adorn the glossy label.

This beer pours a glassy pale golden straw hue, with two fat fingers of thinly foamy, puffy white head, which leaves a decent low-lying seawall of sudsy lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of grainy cereal malt, stewing apples, a moderate metallic stoniness, and spicy, grassy hops. The taste is sweet, grainy, somewhat white bready malt, dry, aged white wine, mildly spoiled apple cider, and leafy, grassy, earthy hops.

The carbonation is average, just a slightly frothy edginess, the body medium-light in weight, with an adequate smoothness, just a wee blip from the wavering hops here and there. It finishes off-dry, the grape-y fruitiness kind of overshadowing the lingering cereal malts, and the grassy hops fading to dark.

A so-so pilsner, with quite a few promising tics, but the overall feel is one of plainness. However, there's nothing particularly offensive about this offering, perhaps it could be informative to those who are scared of those big Saaz hops, and need to be treated with Pils kid gloves.
