2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Slightly cloudy, pale golden color, airy white head. Slight citric aroma. Bitter, metallic flavor with a dry finish. Medium body, medium carbonation. Weaker than I expected.
This was a truly disgusting experience. I dont get biscuits or honey or zest or any of the other BS I read on the other reviews on this upchuck lager. I get vomit, yeasty funky disgusting puke. I’ve never had anything from left hand I loved - especially not the milk stout everyone raves about. But this was truly horrible. I am not down with the traditional yeasty funk indicative of old German law and Belgian style beers. Pilsner huh?- Well I am, going to reach for a modelo to was h this puke out of my mouth and then go back into my variety pack. ...yuck Poobah (429) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - JUN 13, 2017
Clear gold with a meringue head and a somewhat lemony, bready nose. Crisp and well-carbonated with a somewhat dry, sweet, lightly bitter finish. Thechasm442 (1005) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2017
Bottle. Pour is a mostly clear straw with a thicker white head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is spicy floral hops. Grains, earth, and bread. Taste is grains, spicy, earthy hops, bread, and a tangy, slightly skunky finish. Crisp and quenching. ronaldtheriot (1920) - 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.

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 glass’s 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 (17339) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2017
On tap at St. Augustine’s, 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.

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. beerme31 (685) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - DEC 23, 2016
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 (343) - 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.
