Scrimshaw Pilsner

Brewery: North Coast Brewing Co.
Location: Fort Bragg, CA
Style: Pilsner
Brewery Website
Rating: B-

Up next for review we have the Scrimshaw Pilsner from North Coast Brewing Company. The Scrimshaw Pilsner is golden yellow in color with a very faint haze. There are some fine bubbles that rise in the glass. The nose is led by a lagery malt aroma with notes of herbal and piny hops.

On the palate, the Scrimshaw Pilsner has a light, wheaty lager malt flavor. There is a mild acidity and some citrus notes. There is a very mild hops bitter undertone. The Scrimshaw Pilsner has a light-to-medium body with a light foamy mouthfeel. The finish is rather short, with wheaty malt notes.

The Scrimshaw Pilsner is rather light in flavor for my tastes. There isn't much in the way of hops going on here. This is a beer best suited to hot summers and tailgating. If you're a Bud/Miller/Coors drinker looking for an upgrade then this would be a really good place to start.
