COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Couldnít really tell the difference between this and the wheat beer they make, but itís still a very good quality pilsner beer. Almost identical in taste to the blue star wheat, at least to me. But still worth trying one or the other on a hot day.

Bottle 12 oz. Light amber color with medium white head that lasted most of the brew. Medium balanced aroma. Medium body. Average flavor of malt and hops with a medium dry finish. Below average pilsner.

A lighter pilsner. Didnít taste a lot of hop. May seem a little tasteless, but drinkable. A little creamy too.

Pours a thin golden color with lots of carbonated bubbles rising to a thick foamy cream white head. Aromas of malts and hops blend together perfectly. THIS is a true Pilsner, take notes Miller. Smooth refreshing taste of malts that finishes with a slight bitter hop taste.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Somewhat strong hop aroma. Poured a little wimpy. Hard to get adecent head on the cloudy gold body. Weak tasting. Malt and some grainy sweatness and little else. Decent body for the style though. Drinkable, but not desirable.

Smells very hoppy for a pilsener. Not to similar to Czech pils, but in this case itís a good thing. Hops not very present in taste. Could drink this beer at almost any time.

Light yellow and malty on the nose. Bubbly head. Very light with a weak finish. Fine as a summer thirst quencher, but nothing memorable.

Pours golden with a white head. Flavor is light malt, slightly sweet, with some grassy hops. Nothing spectacular but a good summer session beer after mowing the lawn.

Typical Pilsner light golden hay color, thin and crispy pale white head of foam scarcely remains for any duration. Less then moderate lacing in thin strings. Solid aroma of Hallertauer and Noble hops bringing a nice crispy grassyness and keeps a slender sweet malt backing with slight hints of fresh grains. Flavors are about the same with a nice crispened snap to its appeal. Lightly sweet with a moderation of hopping adding some grassyness and a high point middle of grain action girth. Levels out quickly though as it flys right off the finish leaving tiny notes of high grain earthy sourness and tin. Some trickling sweetness and hop grass returns very late in the back end quarters of the palate. Feel is OK for a Pilsner, nice holding carbonation thats crisp right from the get go yet doesnít display any real staying power or length. The body is just shy of medium, but overall is quick to disperse. Finish lingers lightly with dry grainyness and watery deposits inbetween. Goes down easily enough, but doesnít maintain a whole lot of interest beyond one or two glassfulls.
