Wow, very nice and refreshing. Perfect for when you just want a cold beer on a hot day. AnokaBrewer (201) - Anoka, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2014
This is the best American made German Pilsner that I have ever had. Very true to style. Bright yellow in color, very nice head and some Brussels Lace, but not a lot. Slight hop aroma. Great mouthfeel, slight bitter finish. ronaldtheriot (1918) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - APR 18, 2017
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.

Bottled on 1/30/08, sampled on 2/14/08.
Pale yellow straw color with a white 1-finger head that quickly fades to small patches and clumps. Ultra-fine bubbles lace well. Very grainy Pils malt aroma with a definite noble hop accent. Some carbonic whiffs. Taste mirrors the aroma. Lots of grainy Pils malt taste witha good spicy Saaz bite on the dry bittering finish. Some stingy carbonation, but not completely out of line for the style. Great American Pilsener in a more traditional style that say, Prima Pils. Get a fresh sample to rate people! Underrated.

aroma: sweet pilsner malt, saaz hops.
taste: sweet pilsner malt, floral saaz hops.
simple and clean, with very nice flavors. hops come across as fresh and delicate. may not be an exact replica of the traditional style, seeming to have more body and alcohol, but what’s not to like about that.
Easy drinkin pilsner, with a flavorful, but extremely easy finish. Thumbs up! BeerKurve (520) - - MAY 29, 2012
Unique flavor which is a blend of yeasts, floral hops and cider; All of which blends together very nicely. Finishes smoothly, overall a great Pilsener! Splitenz (368) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2014
I had this excellent American craft pilsner in Helsinki, where I reacted by saying "see, you CAN have hops in a lager!" (As most Finnish lagers seemed to be devoid of such). A rare treat this, a well made, fine tasting American CRAFT lager. I enjoyed the German taste notes being handled with such love and not caked in too many "new world" punk style flavors.
A joy of a beer. mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - APR 3, 2015
Nice. Something to write home about? No. But a very good malt backbone. Recommended.
