Beer of the Week 21: Scrimshaw

North Coast Brewing Company's Scrimshaw

From the bottle:

Named for the delicate engravings of nineteenth century seafarers, this is a fresh-tasting pilsner-style beer brewed in the finest European tradition, with a subtle hop character, a clean, crisp palate and a dry finish.

Water, malted barley, hops, yeast & that’s all.

From my notes:

 Pours a beautiful straw color, with very little head that quickly dissipated, no lacing. Smells of citrus, cut grass and malt. Has a pleasant, almost subtle, floral taste with a very mild hop finish. Light bodied and very dry.

One of my favorite Pilsners

 

Great example of what a Pilsner beer is supposed to be. A light and very refreshing beer. And, that isn’t a surprise  as it has  won a number of awards. If you’ve never had it you should definitely give Scrimshaw a try.

Doesn’t mix well with polite company; his two favorite topics being politics and religion. Would rather be out cycling, swimming, running, or camping. Misspent his youth reading genre-fiction; today, he is making up for it by reading large quantities of non-fiction literature. The fact that truth, in every way, is more fascinating than fiction still tickles him.
