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.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2005 Poured golden with a foamy white head. Aroma had floral hops, citrus and malts. Very German Pilsner taste with the malts working quite well. This was pretty good. Certainly a summer beer I would have again.

12 oz bottle pours golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is of light malts and floral hops. Flavor is grainy with a nice hop finish. On the palate this is light, crisp and clean as a goos pilsner should be. Great beer for a summer day.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6537) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2012 I like this brewer but am not a big fan of Pilseners in general. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a pale golden color with a medium sized white head that left good lacing. The aroma was lightly tangy and malty with a vague sweetness. The flavor is light sour malts with some bread and a hint of nut. The beer turns a bit sour on the finish. Not too bad for a Pilsener.

Couldn’t really tell the difference between this and the wheat beer they make, but it’s 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.

Tmoney99 (13245) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2005
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. Didn’t taste a lot of hop. May seem a little tasteless, but drinkable. A little creamy too.

novedyarg (55) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 5, 2005
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 it’s 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.
