Polestar has a thin, white head, a mostly clear, bubbly, straw appearance, with lots of tiny powdery sediment, and minimal glass lacing. Aroma is of sweet white bread (pale malt) and lemon. Taste is of those elements, with noticeable, yet mild, hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Polestar finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT

Dacrza (942) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - APR 2, 2017
DATE: April 2, 2017... OCCASION: a nice weekend ends with possibly a nice spring beer... GLASSWARE: Penn State pilsner... pours a crinkling, crispy crackle of effervescence, with large bubbles clinging to the glasss edge and rocketing up to form a diminishing, erratic display of lacing... sallow, clear body... begins with a sharp tick of Saaz and noble hops before entertaining lemon zest and malty cracker.... otherwise, light and suggesting of easy drinking... which it is, with a soft, smooth mouthfeel that only pauses at the teeth before tingling with a swift flourish at the throat... moderate aftertaste.... the flavor profile is lemony, with grass, cracker, spring flowers, a bit of earthiness, and sweet malts... a pilsner that is fine in a mix pack, but not one I would seek out by itself... slightly more affecting than a rinser, but not a German approximation...

Draft at Bru Craft. Clear golden yellow pour with a modest white head. Big carbonation. Strong toasty aroma with some plastic gloss. Tastes of cracker malts. Shortbread. Bruised lemons. Cardamom. Kumquat. Cereal grains. Not my style but would do in a pinch.

mcberko (16956) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2017
On tap at St. Augustines, pours a clear pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is pretty laid back, with light grassy notes and dry biscuity malt. Flavour is rather herbal, with light grass further back and dry biscuity malt. Too herbal, even a bit skunky in the off-flavour sense. Not feeling this.

Diablokev (180) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2016
The aroma is light, maybe some licorice. The appearance is a very plae gold with a thin white head. Again a hint of licorice in the taste. Super easy to drink. Okay beer overall.

Bottle. Pours clear straw golden with white lacing. Aroma of sweet bread, grass, and a hint of fruit. Medium sweet taste. Light body, dry light bitter finish. Good overall.

17Beer (324) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 9, 2016
Soft scents of malt and bread. Pours a very pale gold yellow with a thin fast dissipating white head. Nice sour hops and malt following the nose. Short crisp finish with soft carbonation and almost no lacing. Very creditable pilsner.

Aggiebob (1072) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 31, 2016
Bottle. Cloudy pale gold with a quickly dissipating white head. Malty aroma with notes of grain, hay, sourdough and hops.

AleJones (22) - Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2016
Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass. Easy drinking pilsner with a slightly bitter graininess that one would expect from the style. Clean, fresh, and crisp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
