North Coast Brewing – Scrimshaw Pislner

HARDLY A STANDOUT in quite a robust lineup, but judged exclusively by its own merits is a perfectly respectable entry in the field. Crystalline golden pour, eager head with plenty of lacing, but not too durable. Mouthfeel is crisp, not watery, slightly floral nose and a little lemon in the flavor, followed by classic Munich pale malts. Noble hops equally traditional (Tettnang, Hallertau), and almost more aromatic than flavorful. Alcohol of 4.4% not to be discerned.
