A very warm day is a good day for pilsners. Here goes:

A: Pours a clear gold (maybe a little coppery, though) with a three-fingered head that leaves some lacing. The head is nice and fluffy and the beer looks like a pilsner. Great. 4.5/5

S: Good. None of the corn smell that is present in many American adjunct lagers - this one is solid barley (maybe some wheat, too) and hops. The malt is rather mild and grainy, but the hops are readily apparent. I can smell lemon, grass, pepper and lighter spices - very European and not robust like in American beers. Some drawbacks, but good.

Overall, the smell is rather simple: grainy malt and lemony hops. This is great for a pilsner, however. 4/5

T: Taste follows the nose except the malt is more apparent. Can still detect lemon, grass and lighter spices from the hops, and the malt has a rather distinct grainy taste. Simple but good. 4/5

M: Very clean and crisp. Glides down the throat. Great. 4.5/5.0

O: Proof that beers don't have to be complex to be very good. 4.25/5.00

Scrimshaw Pilsner brewed by North Coast Brewing Co, with an ABV of 4.40% This brew pours out a nice amber color with a nice white head. The smell is nice with some grains and malts. There is nothing over powering so far. The taste is nice with some malts and grains. The mouthfeel is nice and clean. Scrimshaw Pilsner has a smooth finish. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4 out 5. I would buy this brew again.
