North Coast Scrimshaw ....

Today I will have a Scrimshaw, Pilsner Style Beer, from North Coast Brewing Company.  Twelve ounce bottle.  Their web site shows 4.4% ABV and 22 IBUs.

Scrimshaw poured with a small, off-white head.  Beer color is a medium yellow.  The aroma is milder, with some grains, and a little citrus/fruit.  Though not usually a big fan of pilsners, I like this.  It has some nice malt and grain up front, then some citrus.  It thins out towards the finish, but doesn't seem to get "grassy" like some other milder beers.  There is a little bitterness, but it balances with everything else and doesn't really make you think "bitter".  A very mild grain and bitterness in the aftertaste.  For a milder beer, I could drink several of these.
