If God himself were to drink a beer, it would be this one. It has the light, drinkable texture, all of the alcohol content, and no nasty aftertaste. I can drink this while i eat dinner, or I can come in after mowing my grass and this beer is absolutely amazing. I have had it semi warm and ice cold. Of course Ice cold is the best. The one thing that I truly admire about this beers flavor is that is goes great with any food you make. I truly love it best with a big plate of fried Cod, Fried chips and hush puppies!

Twelve ounce bottle into bicentennial Mason jar.
A: Beautiful golden color with three finger white head that has good lace on tip and some round spot left here and there.
S: Nice fresh grains and floral hops. Sweet clover honeycomb. The smell of a fresh bale of hay in the barn when you break it open.
T: Munich malt, Hallertauer, und Tettnang hops. Das ist gut beir. The grassy flower nectar hops complement the sweet malt perfectly. Nice crisp dry finish. German Pilsners und Kolsch beirs are hitting my tastebuds much more square as I learn more and more about beir. This is an incredible working in the hot sun summer beir. Try a few on they will fit you nicely.
M: Crisp light-medium body an A+ for this style.
D: When I shock wheat this summer I will bring several cases of this and will drink till its gone.

pours a not-quite transparent golden, tiny bubbles moving through the middle a bit, with an almost-white thick smooth head, could last a bit longer but nice lacing.
smell is relatively clean but nice sweet malt in there with a touch of hop, notable lack of DMS.
taste is all clean pilsner - nice sweet malt balanced with a nice dose of hops. once again, a very notable lack of DMS.. it's almost confusing. i keep going back and looking for it, but it's just not there.
mouthfeel is beautiful - a little less carbonated than a lot of pilsners, but plenty to leave a nice refreshing spark.
drinkability is perhaps the highest i've ever drank.. tastes great, goes down smooth, just a touch of hop on the clean finish just asks for another taste.

This is my favorite Pilsner. This beer will forever have a place in my heart as one of the most fantastic sessionable beers one can drink.
It has a beautiful straw color and is crystal in appearance.
I have consumed this from the bottle as well as in a glass and I have to say the hops really come out best in a glass. Unlike many pilsners this one has a firm hop profile but not so much in the aroma, however as far as hops go if you're looking for a well balanced lager this is the one for you. This beer has been around for years and it has outsold the BIG THREE on the North Coast year after year.
North Coast local and loyal drinker forever thanks to fantastic beers like this one.

Appearance - Light golden color, with a good white head. Some beer lace.
Smell - Clean, crisp. It has that characteristic lager small, and maybe just a hint of hops.
Taste - Even cleaner and crisper. It is a greast thing to drink a pilsner that is not skunked. This is a great beer to start you macro drinkin' buddies on. It is not too imposing, but the flavor is so very good.
Mouthfeel - Light on the palate, but not watery. I dream about tasting beers like this.
Drinkability - Highly drinkable. This stuff is so smooth it's scary. It finishes clean. Truly an excellent pilsner.
Comments - This is the best pilsner I've ever had. Have you had too many skunked pilsners in green bottles? This is the beer for you. All hail the folks at North Coast Brewing!

Wow, just keep coming back to this one. Poured into a shorty. Has a lively pumpkin glow. Inviting for sure. But what really makes it special is the citrus aroma. It's outstanding with every sip (or gulp). Non of the mustyness that comes with many pills. And the taste is exceptional. Scrimshaw takes you on a nice bright flavor ride before pulling back to a clean satisfying finish. Could drink this one all the time -- wait, i do!
