Left Hand Polestar Lager
A good part of Polestar’s authentic appeal comes from the award-winning Weyermann Pilsner Malt that Left Hand uses. This beer has also has a great blend of Perle, Vanguard and Saaz hops. Very pale golden-yellow hue. Clarity is perfect, with lots of tiny bubbles racing to the top. Impeccable head retention, as two fingers froth stick all the way down to the bottom of the glass. Light and fluffy biscuity malt aroma, as well as spicy, grassy hops in the nose. The crispness is so embedded and the smoothness so laid-back, it’s incredibly refreshing. Fresh, biscuity malt flavor throughout.
