North Coast Brewing - Scrimshaw Pilsner
You may know North Coast Brewing from such beers as Old Rasputin and Red Seal but today we are drinking the Scrimshaw Pilsner. "What is a scrimshaw?" I have no fucking clue. But after a quick wikipedia search, it turns out a scrimshaw is an engraved whale tooth or bone. This makes sense because that is what is on the bottle. Now we can both feel stupid together. In any case this beer is good, I guess. It is nothing special, just another pilsner. If you cannot tell I am pretty ambivalent about this brew. I would definitely drink the Bayern Pilsener over the North Coast Scrimshaw, but Scrimshaw is a pretty good beer nonetheless. 3.5 out of 5. Drink it, I guess.
