Left Hand Polestar Pilsner

The Left Hand Brewing Company is in Longmont, Colorado. This is their 5.5% ABV pilsner. The side of the bottle has a glassware selection. I have a pretty good idea what glass will work with or is appropriate for many styles of beer, but I still do like it when the brewery puts their suggestion on their bottle. Only a handful of breweries do it.

The beer pours a very pale yellow, golden in color. There is a tall, thick, foamy head of white. The aroma is lagery funk, bread dough, honey, floral, citrus. The taste is grassy, bread dough, straw, with a very bitter finish. The beer drinks crisp, dry, and refreshingly carbonated. This is a top notch American pilsner!
