Welcome to The Beer Is Good!


North Coast Scrimshaw Pilsner

Style: Pilsner
Brewery: North Coast Brewing Company
Package: Bottle into Pint Glass
ABV: 4.4%
Gravity: Unknown
IBU: 22
Location: Citywide Liquors (Downtown South Bend) & The Mark Restaurant

Aroma: Light citrus, slight toasty aroma.

Appearance: Pale, golden with a light white head.

Taste: Light citrus and sweet toasty malt.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and clean, finishes dry.

Drinkability: This is a beer that entices you to work outside all day just to quench your thirst with one of these. At 4.4% ABV, you can enjoy a few quite easily.

Notes: With Pilsner like this, there is certainly no reason to drink beer from Miller, Budweiser, Coors, etc. Unlike some of the aforementioned mega-breweries, North Coast brews this with just four ingredients; Water, Yeast, Barley (Munich Malt) and Hops (Hallertauer & Tettnang). When introducing people to the world of craft beer, I often start with this.

Food Pairing: Pizza, Burgers, Seafood, Barbecue, etc. Pilsner goes quite well with a wide variety of food!
