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.

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2005
Yellow color with little white head. Not much smell or taste to speak of. Not much more to say about this beer other than to fill up the space in this box.....Done!

glider (57) - Shrub Oak, New York, USA - JAN 19, 2005
Nice pouring, low/small head. Color was cloudy & fairly yellow, head did not sustain. Flavor was not hoppy so much - more malty. A little rough, not too smooth

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 28, 2004
Ya know, I liked this more than my rating will show, very drinkable and overall quite good. Thin body, thin yellow colour with a thin white head. The nose is copper, very slight hops, and the taste is pilsnerish. Quite good, one of the better pilsners out there. Had it on tap at the blind pig in champaign illinois

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Appearance: clear, golden hue, with a fine film of bright white foam, swiftly settling. Aroma: bright, shiny hops stands tall against sweetish malty tones. Taste: smooth and light on the palate, hops playing it mild here, but with each returning sip they recur again and again. Light and tasty, a near-perfect pilsener, from one of my favorite American brewers. I like it, I like it.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - DEC 3, 2004
This is the beer that all those mass-produced idiots like to think theirs resembles. This is a fine example of an easy drinkin’ pilsner.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - NOV 19, 2004
Out of the bottle this brew pours a light straw color with a small white head. A nice wheaty clean aroma falls off the top of the glass, a bit grassy, very subtle light malt, and some floral hops. Taste is very light and crisp. Clean grains hit the palate with just the lightest touch. A light bitterness finishes this brew off with mellow flavors.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2004
Very big aroma for a pilsner, full of barley and typical lager muskiness. A purely "beer" character all throughout. Nice mouthfeel with a surprisingly mellow mouthfeel and nice finish. Very drinkable, perhaps a tad too simple all around but solid as can be; plus we aren’t kidding anyone, this beer was intended to be simple - just a very well crafted pilsener.

Jine (900) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2005
12 oz bottle. New Year’s Eve. This was a really good Pils. I sucked it right up and it brought a smile to my face. Not of any exceptional quality, but I could drink a 6 of this easily. Fine fine session brew.

thedm (5034) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 29, 2004
This bottled brew poured a medium sized head of frothy fine to large sized mostly lasting white colored bubbles that left behind an unnoted lacing. The body contained average carbonation, was transparent and light orange brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of grasses and malts . Its mouth feel is initially tingly off tasting and bubbly with a smooth aftertaste. Its flavor contained weird off tasting grassy notes. Not one I would buy again.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Pale yellow pour with a very thin white head. Nice malty aroma with the slightest hint of hops. Very mild flavor, mainly of malt with a slight hop bite at the end and the faintest of aftertastes. A bit watery in the body though. I could definitely drink a bunch of these though.
