Named for the delicate engravings popularized by 19th century seafarers, Scrimshaw is a fresh tasting 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.

12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy copper / golden with a medium off-white head. Aroma brings out clean corn notes, grassy noble hops, pepper, and some biscuity malt. Flavour is pretty clean, with spicy grassy hop, some light peppery notes, and a biscuity malt backbone. Bone dry, with zero sweetness screaming through. Easy drinking, solidly made pils - nothing wrong with it at all, just not overly ambitious. Decent stuff.

Bottled: unk Yellow with white sheet of fine foam. Smells of grain, light herbal hops and some light white grapes. Taste is nice and inline with the style, grainy with straw and noble hop character. LIght bodied with low carb and a wet finish. Nice enough.

Bottle. Clear. Golden yellow. Aroma is bread, hay, grass, beer, earth. Taste is very bland. Faint flavors of caramel, cinnamon, honey. Light body, flat. Overall just average.

On tap at Avenue Pub in New Orleans. I had gotten a little drunk and decided to reach for the lower ABV option and found this. Really a nice beer, well done. Poured a clear gold with a little bit of white head. A bit straw-like, light on the hops but they’re there. Crisp and clean, a nice example of the style. Perhaps not a wild over-the-top beer, but I enjoyed it.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2013 Aroma of Euro pils malts and hops: grassy. Hay. Great head. Smooth flavor with hops hitting in the finish. Grass, hay, bitter. Malts. Love this sort of pils. Underrated. December update: got a six-pack of this after previously sampling it at a restaurant, and it is not wowing me as much this time. Aroma is still noble hops with a little bit of a floral presence I’m noticing this time - not changing the rating there - and the appearance is still solid, but the taste and palate are more pedestrian to me. It’s got decent bitterness and biscuits, but it’s not particularly long-lasting. A solid pils, but not one of the greatest.

It is a very simple and light body Pilsner. Great drinkability. It is very refreshing.

Came to me off tap in a 16oz pilsner glass, very lovely golden color with a nice bright white head. Aroma to me was filled with bread an malts with just a hint of an aromatic hop presence. Taste was good, again a crisp clean taste filled with that same malt and bread flavors the hopes were more present here than in the aroma. Very light and grassy but for me this finished very dry and at 4.4%abv I finished it very quickly.
