3.03/5  rDev -19.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours an above average looking deep golden colour that has a bit of haziness to it. Head is fairly small in size and once settled in leaves small amounts of residue on the glass.

The aroma is average at best, as it is quite faint: grainy, some floral hops and buttery notes are basically it here.

Flavour doesn't do much, if anything, more. Some grainy malt. Floral hops seem to be even more subdued here. That said, there is a bit more overall sweetness here, but even the buttery notes are held back to a slight note at the finish of each sip. Mouthfeel is light bodied and not as crisp as hoped for from the style.

I was disappointed by this one overall. North Coast generally puts out some good to very good stuff and the Scrimshaw just wasn't up to par with that or with the best from within the style. It just blends in as average amongst a sea of Pilsners.

3.99/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 FL. OZ. bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a beautiful clear light golden body with a fantastic thick billowy white head.

Smell: Rich European Munich/Pilsner malt aroma and lovely floral hop smell.

Taste: Very bready with soft subtle flavor from the Hallertauer and Tettnang hops. Full flavored yet light.

Mouthfeel: Appropriately full bodied yet very light and smooth.

Overall: Bordering more on Helles/Czech Pilsner territory than German Pilsner. More bready and floral than sharp and earthy. Listed as 4.7% ABV on North Coast Brewing website.

Serving type: bottle
