12z bottle. Clear and golden hue. Two fingers of white head. Buttery, woody aroma. Body is light and crisp. Slight bubblegum note. Nice dry effervescent finish. Honey and apples. Quite refreshing. oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2005
Pours a nice golden yellow. Aromas of malts, hops. Crisp hop bitterness and dry finish. Tatses like a typical pilsner, I expected more from North Coast. Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2005
Pilseners are generally not my favorite beers, but this one was reasonably flavorful. The head left something to be desired. Not a ton of hops either which was kind of disappointing. I’ve gotta say, this is one of the cooler names for a beer though: "Scrimshaw." I actually have a friend at school who carves bones. bethmatt0421 (337) - Covington, Kentucky, USA - NOV 20, 2005
Very small hops. This reminds me wine. crisp and clean just like the commercial description says.Just doesn’t have that bite I enjoy. TrevorFloyd (309) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Better than their hefeweizen, but not by much. Fairly similar in fact, with nothing special or offensive to be found. I wouldn’t turn one down if it was offered, but I wouldn’t run out to buy one either.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2005 Bottle (12oz). Poured very bubbly clear gold with a good foamy white head. There was a frisson of hops in the air when I popped it, but when I sniffed the glass there was only a faint residue, as well as some slightly vegetal grainy malt (almost corny). Taste is a bit buttery, average mouthfeel, a bit fizzy, mild grains, dry hops, slightly sweet malt, with straw - finishes fairly dry, whisper-sweet. This is okay, but thee’s a weird touch of bleach about it. Ratman197 (14978) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 11, 2005
Bottle poured a clear golden amber with a small but lasting white head. Aromas of cereal, and a sweet fruity nose.Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, and a bit oh orange with a clean crisp finish. frankenkitty (2012) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - NOV 3, 2005
Appeared as a well-hazed golden/amber with a small head. Light aromas were sweet with tangerine, taffy and cereal malts. Balanced flavor found mild sweetness to start with citric hopping after. Medium-bodied, smooth & creamy with a light, mineral finish.

Golden orange color. Small creamy white head. Grainy malt and a slight floral hop character in the aroma. Clean malt flavors, some sweetness, and a slightly citrus hop component. Finish is crisp with residual grain flavor. Mouthfeel is fairly dry. jcwattsrugger (12471) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - OCT 27, 2005
12 oz bottle-pours an offwhite, fizzy head that reduces quickly. Color is slight hazy, bright yellow. Aroma is lime, grain. Taste is lots of effervescence then grain. A smooth, nice beer.
