Pilsner brewed in the finest European tradition from Munich and Klages malts, Hallertauer and Tettnang hops. Scrimshaw has a subtle hop character, a crisp, clean palate, and a dry finish.
light clean, refreshing. not to hoppy, good summer beer.

Scrimshaw is one that I’ve put off having for some strange reason. It’s one of North Coast’s most accessible brews in terms of distribution. Having now tasted it, I can say that’s true of the beer itself too. Nose is mild with bread and cereal grains. Flavor has smooth lager yeast and herbal hops. Feel is surprisingly sticky for the style. That’s sort of odd for what’s usually such a crisp, clean style, but I enjoyed it.

Bottle at Hog Island. Pale yellow with a low head. Lemony nose, a bit of pineapple. Flavor is quite fruity, with pineapple and oranges. Decent.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft pour to a schooner at Elliott bay pizza. Pours a clear golden color with a ton of fizz head and lace. Very high carb here. Light body, grain heavy flavor. High carb burn late. Odd beer for me. Too much carb, not enough flavor. There is likely a time and place for this beer, and I missed out on both. Will try again later.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden pour. Normal head volume, outstanding retention and lacing.
Light nose of noble hops over biscuit with a hint of lemon.
Light body that has a texture of water. Perfect carbonation with a burst of middle effervescence and rollicking finely bubbled prickly finish.
The flavor profile is quite good, but lacks the intensity and complexity to be outstanding. It begins pretty much as it ends. A light hop flavor over a light biscuit and mild bitterness. The finish is clean, dry and crisp.
