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.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2012 Poured with a nice big white sticky head over clear golden goodness. Impressive hop-malt aroma. Velvety smooth. Citric bit over balanced continental pilsner.

On tap. Had a pale appearance with good lacing on the glass. A pretty crisp flavor, but a little bit bland.

This beer is a true pilsner with a typical and average taste/aroma/appearance. The beer lacks substance, something North Coast's other beer have. I felt bored and unmotivated to like it. Though on second thoughts, maybe i was just dissapointed and did not appreciate it is crisp and clean palate (as it claims). I gave it a couple of tries, some better than others depending on what i had eaten/drank before it. Still better than crappy Macro pilsners, but still a lackluster beer.

Hazy gold w/ a thin white short lived head. Light malty aroma w/ diacetyl in the immediate nose, becomes more grainy malt as it warms and has no hop aroma that I can detect. Flavor is grainy malt, not really munich w/ a little green apple, but has hints of bitterness in the finish and a light hop flavor in the aftertaste. It's highly carbonated producing a biting carbonic bite, light bodied and not really smooth at all. Definitely not my favorite beer from North Coast as it's fairly lifeless overall, but has more character than most Am. lights. In it's defense, this might be past it's prime, but not oxidized yet so I'll re rate if I get a better bottle.

Light malt, lemon aroma. Almost a bit musty. Hazy with no real head. Light in taste, somewhat sour

Hazy gold. Light malt, some plasticy aromas. Grainy malt flavor, light hops. Lighter, a bit watery. Skip it.

Oakes (13270) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2004
Cloudy. Has some dirty diaper aroma, but also hints of pale malt. Tastes watery, empty. Like spent grain instead of malt, and mere shades of hops. Surprising to me, because North Coast beers are usually quite good.

jercraigs (8334) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2004 Goldish yellow colour with little head. Aroma is pretty funky... not entirely sure what was going on there. Bit light and watery, some nice fruit notes.

hershiser2 (1328) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2004
Paid $1.29 for a 12-oz single. Nice light golden yellow, decent head, but shrinks quickly. Nice, slightly sweet wheaty grass scent. Nice, flavorful mouthful of beer. Slightly grassy, this beer finishes with a nice, bitter dryness. Very nice tingly mouthfeel. This would make a good session beer if you enjoy pilsners. Not my favorite style, but this beer definitely makes for an enjoyable session.

This was a surprising treat..a light clear golden colored pilsner with a nice fruity/floral aroma...nice fruity taste too and very clean and refreshing. damn tasty i must say for being a lager.
