Wow…after today’s beer I will be in the home stretch with just 20 beers to go. So let us crest that hill and begin that long, fun (hopefully), and fast downhill section (mountain biking reference) towards the finish line.
Beer #345 is Polestar Pilsner by Left Hand Brewing Company brewed in Colorado in the town of Longmont. Their version of a German Pilsner has an ABV of 5.5%.
This beer had a slightly cloudy golden color to it with just a small white head. There was some really nice bubble action going in here also…it is kind of cool to stare at. I took a whiff, the nose was very bready and grassy. Mix in a bit of citrus…lemon I believe…and there you have it. It was a bit sweeter than I expected in the taste department. Malts are upfront with a very grain like and bread like flavor. Towards the back end was where I found the lemony goodness, much bigger here than in any other German Pilsner I have had. It had a bit of bitterness and was quite crisp. The body was smack dab in the middle of light and medium and it had average amounts of carbonation. This was actually quite smooth and super easy to drink.
This reminded me of summertime…it was quite refreshing and quite good. I liked it quite a bit…can I say quite anymore? Oh yeah…Happy Election Day everyone!!! Get out there and vote…it is your duty as an American citizen (if you are an American citizen that is…if not ignore this) and your right.
