COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named for the delicate engravings popularized by 19th century seafarers, Scrimshaw is a fresh tasting Pilsner brewed in the finest European tradition from Munich and Klages malts, Hallertauer and Tettnang hops. Scrimshaw has a subtle hop character, a crisp, clean palate, and a dry finish.

North Coast has pleased my palate with both it Old Rasputin and Red Seal. But, in my world, a pilsener is a pilsener is a pilsener. It poured a clear golden body mounted by a white, soapy head. Very smooth in the mouth with a peppery, hay flavor. Finishes crisp and slightly dry.

Draught. Clear golden color with thin head. Moderate carbonation. Not much nose to speak of. Grainy flavor with a hint of spicy hops. Not much bitterness. No sweetness. A bit boring, but better than your macro pilsners by a long shot.

The 12 oz. stubby bottle this micro brewed Pilsner came in proclaimed its adherence to Reinheitsgebot, without actually uttering the word, by stating: Water, Barley, Hops, Yeast & Thatís All.

The look was classic Pilsner, with a pale clear yellow body, high level of carbonation, and a smallish white head. The brewer did not say bottle conditioned, but the carbonation looked natural to me. The aroma was pleasantly hoppy without being overbearingly so. Grassy, crisp, and little grainy, the aroma did a good job drawing me in.

The taste was clean, with neither the malt, nor the hops being clearly dominant, and a little lemon twist like tang. An embodiment of subtle refreshment, the beer did not attempt to break out of the quintessential mission statement of the style. It did however feel slightly blander than other American micro brewed Pilsners.

An above average Pilsner, made better by the fact that it is fresher stateside than the imports.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2005 Poured golden with a foamy white head. Aroma had floral hops, citrus and malts. Very German Pilsner taste with the malts working quite well. This was pretty good. Certainly a summer beer I would have again.

12 oz bottle pours golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is of light malts and floral hops. Flavor is grainy with a nice hop finish. On the palate this is light, crisp and clean as a goos pilsner should be. Great beer for a summer day.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2012 I like this brewer but am not a big fan of Pilseners in general. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a pale golden color with a medium sized white head that left good lacing. The aroma was lightly tangy and malty with a vague sweetness. The flavor is light sour malts with some bread and a hint of nut. The beer turns a bit sour on the finish. Not too bad for a Pilsener.

Couldnít really tell the difference between this and the wheat beer they make, but itís still a very good quality pilsner beer. Almost identical in taste to the blue star wheat, at least to me. But still worth trying one or the other on a hot day.

Bottle 12 oz. Light amber color with medium white head that lasted most of the brew. Medium balanced aroma. Medium body. Average flavor of malt and hops with a medium dry finish. Below average pilsner.

A lighter pilsner. Didnít taste a lot of hop. May seem a little tasteless, but drinkable. A little creamy too.
