I grew Polestar few years ago and been the best one for me the taste was great, did not have many this year as slugs kept eating them - but I had a few nice ones STGeorge red and white flowering ones good long beans and nice taste can't get better than home grown Runner beans.
I tried Red Rum,Enorma,Scarlet Emperor,ST George and White Emergo all this year in small wigwams. I do think the bees go for the white flowers first they might stand out more for them.
I grew White lady last year nice white and yellow flowers grows well lots of beans. I must say my runner beans always seem to get black fly, they must pass other people's Runner beans just to get at mine (but nut sure they might have them as well as me)
