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.

A quaffable pilsener. A bit creamy but not lacking as a crisp, refreshing brew. A bit of citrus in the nose that carries into the mouth with a little bit of cookie sweetness. Signature Cali hoppiness gives it a good bite.

Slightly sweet aroma of yeast and citrus. Pale golden and clear. Thin white head. Extra clean flavor with a good body and a little hop bite at the end. A bit fruity for the style and lacking in malt character. Very quenching however. I like to imagine the clean coastal water of Northern California.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Pale A nice smeller. Notes of peach and lemon, with herbal and grassy hops and malt of pale types. Very hoppy, especially considering its style and a mellow fruitiness throughout, mainly peach, pear and lemon. The hops are herbal, floral and well pronounced. The malts are toasted and biscuit-like. This is a great example of the style.

To me, this beer was completely tasteless. This could be good or bad ... if I was in college, this would definitely be good, because I could slam it in a minute. Yet, it’s expensive. So for the refined market, it is not complex enough to impress or warrant such a price. I have enjoyed some North Coast brews, this one was below average.

Frank (3128) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2004
Bottle at the Hopleaf in Chicago. Cloudy yellow, little head. Bright and fruity and a bit sweetness that lends sort of an iced tea character. I wouldn’t really call this a pilsener in any traditional sense but it is damn fine and underrated lager beer.

Pours golden with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma is lightly malty with some light hops. Taste has notes of lemon, grain and grassiness. Can use more malt backing, sweetness and hop "zing". Mouthfeel is round and crisp. Overall, not awful very boring. It's surprising they can make a brew as great as Old Stock Ale and release this.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2006 Not a bad pils... very dry to the taste. It pours a decent head (that soon fades away) over a bubbly golden body. Nice mild malt aroma. A clean drink.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 27, 2004
Golden color. Decent head, goes away though. Body is pretty malty for a pilsner, but they didn’t get as much taste out of the malt I feel. Lightly hopped. Not bad.

Nice grassy and slightly hoppy aromas form the initial pouring. The beer has a muted gold coloring and a large white head. Looks better than most pilseners The smell reminds me of clay, for some reason. The taste is light and refreshing. It has a saty taste with some potato chips? A decent example of the style, but I have had better.
