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.

Hazy gold. Light malt, some plasticy aromas. Grainy malt flavor, light hops. Lighter, a bit watery. Skip it.

Oakes (11770) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2004
Cloudy. Has some dirty diaper aroma, but also hints of pale malt. Tastes watery, empty. Like spent grain instead of malt, and mere shades of hops. Surprising to me, because North Coast beers are usually quite good.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2004 Goldish yellow colour with little head. Aroma is pretty funky... not entirely sure what was going on there. Bit light and watery, some nice fruit notes.

hershiser2 (1175) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2004
Paid $1.29 for a 12-oz single. Nice light golden yellow, decent head, but shrinks quickly. Nice, slightly sweet wheaty grass scent. Nice, flavorful mouthful of beer. Slightly grassy, this beer finishes with a nice, bitter dryness. Very nice tingly mouthfeel. This would make a good session beer if you enjoy pilsners. Not my favorite style, but this beer definitely makes for an enjoyable session.

This was a surprising treat..a light clear golden colored pilsner with a nice fruity/floral aroma...nice fruity taste too and very clean and refreshing. damn tasty i must say for being a lager.

elsberry (87) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 12, 2004
A cloudy gold pour with a thin white head. Aroma of malt, with a slight fruity smell. taste of hops and as others have said, bread. A slightly bitter finish, tart, then crisp and dry.

raymow (780) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2004
Light fruit nose and pale golden color. Tastes like a typical pilsner - crisp and clean with a somewhat dry finish. I'd say it's a bit above an average pilsner and I'd drink it again.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - JAN 9, 2004
Bright golden, modest head and lace, slight hoppy nose, decent body with mildly sweet pale malts, decent hop bitterness. Very straight forward pilsner, lacking style but a decent beer nonetheless.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Rather bland and boring. Pours a cloudy gold, with a very thin white head. Aroma is minimal. Mouthfeel is thin and watery. Some hops on the tongue. along with a dash of citrus fruits, and slightly bready. Not bad, not the best, good for a hot day.

Nice aroma. A dark golden appearance with a fair head. Very little hop presence but a very nice malt flavor. This has some character and its a nice thirst quencher. Good pilsner!
