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.

Neither the most exciting nor complex of beers, but very satisfying, clean and with a very pleasant bitterness. Easily drinkable.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Very good while ice cold, but as it warmed it wasn’t the best. Decent, but there are plenty of great pilsners out there.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Slightly hazy golden body with white head. Aroma is unimpressive malt and yeast. Medium to light bodied. Flavor was tolerable but unremarkable. Probably good cold after mowing the lawn.

Aggie80 (785) - Michigan, USA - MAY 8, 2004
White fluffy head and nice lacing. Golden yellow color with a touch of cloudiness. Very smooth, but lacking in any distinctive flavoring.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Very light nose that has a very slight hoppiness. The beer is a very light gold with a steady carbonation. The palate is light and dry, without much bitterness. The finish is quick and malty. This beer isn’t very pils like at all, more like a continental style than a pils or a helles. Well made, but simple. My guess is that the klages malt screws things up a bit.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 2, 2004
The texture of this beer is really off. Aroma almost nonexistent. There’s hardly any head, but that might be excusable with this style. However, carbonation is hardly present, leaving a waxy finish. Flavorwise, it’s average - the hops and malt do alternate well. I respect a company that makes a "simple brew" along with the others; however, the result in this case is something like stale Maypo without much sugar. By the way, their site states ABV 4.4%.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 1, 2004
Pours hazy golden-straw color with a good fizzy white head that doesn’t last long, not much lacing, light grassy and flowery aromas. Bready and grainy mild sweetness turns hoppy and bitter with some dryness in the finish. Light bodied with a soft but crisp carbonated mouthfeel, very clean and crisp, very nice.

willblake (2652) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - APR 21, 2004
Bottle 04.21.04. Pours a medium gold color, slightly clouded, pilsnerish head that fades quickly. Malt aromas are immediately evident, biscuity. Hops remind of canned mixed citrus fruits, band-aids(?). Flavor is lackluster, not nearly bitter enough to call a pilsner IMO. Watered down texture - sweet, not at all dry yet a citric acid finish. Re-thinking this beer as something other than a pils it becomes pretty tasty and quaffable in a lackluster PNW beer way.
