UPDATED: NOV 29, 2011 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of DMS and soap. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. A somewhat dirty example that isn’t much above swill. Obviously made for Coors drinkers, nothing more. Sad. Gusler (2652) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 30, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2006 The beer as it sets in its Pilsner glass after pouring from the 12-ounce brown bottle is a luminous gold, with a modest bright white head which is creamy in texture, after its erosion, the lace forms a velum like curtain upon the glass. Nose is the prototypical Pilsner malt; sweet and clean, start is lightly sweet with a nice grain presence, the top light in its feel to the palate. Finish is light to moderate in acidity, the hops pleasingly mild and the aftertaste dry and long lasting. Personally, Lagers/Pilsners are not my favorite style, but I must say that I don’t think there’s a prettier sight than a Pilsner in its own glass, covered with condensation and the drops running down the glass, clearing a path so you can see that perfect gold body with its bright white head, to me this say’s “BEER”! ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - AUG 26, 2002
Mouth watering, uber-fresh flowery and nutty aroma. Pours a clear light golden. The average white head is mostly diminishing, frothy, and has good lacing. The very well balanced flavor is solid and refreshing. This brew has a good bitter finish that feels very clean. The lively creamy body is medium. This brew has much more body than I would expect from a visual; reminding me of Great Lakes Dortmunder. A great offering.

A little darker than an average pilsner. Thin head dissipates quickly with minimal lacing. This beer does have some hoppy flavor and a fair amount of bitterness. It's an above average pils. Thanks to a friend in Co. for sending this one my way. Oakes (19013) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 28, 2002
Crap, I think I aliased this backwards. Either that or I scored a really, really old bottle. Lively amber colour, light but balanced palate. Kind of bland, but has a refreshing character. I know that sounds like what some people write about Coors Light, but this is a bit more than that.

nice copper color, buttery nose and toffee flavors with a mild hop presence. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 3, 2001
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2005 Very clear, very golden, and very heady. Clean, refreshing, and quite tasty. Goes down light and easy, with a surprising amount of flavor. Rerate Polestar Pilsner: Clear straw. Light body; crisp and clean. Big, snappy bitterness (flowers mostly). Mild sweetness, perhaps just enough to balance things out. Hops slightly outweighed sweetness.
