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.

Bottle. No nose. Grapefruit flavor with some hops. Very dry. Nasty finish. Blah.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Bright golden body and soapy white head that mostly faded away. Sweet citrus and berry aroma like Trix. Also has honey and light grassy notes. Aspartame-quality bitterness dominates the flavor. A very unimpressive offering from North Coast.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2004
Cloudy and golden in colour with a moderate head. Just doesn’t do it for me, too sweet at the opening and bitter in the finish. Good brewery, mediocre beer.

0o9i (438) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 19, 2004
On tap at brewery...surely a traditional pils and it is crisp and clean and dry...but overall a let down. Smelled good, looked good. Flavor was weak, no sweetness.

Falconseye8 (542) - Evans, Colorado, USA - JUN 15, 2004
Cleany citrusy flavor. Not too hoppy or malty, clean, crisp beer that isn’t trying to be anything but what it is. Its a very nice Pilsner and again another brewery whose beers impress me even more sip after sip after sip.

Bottle: Got this of the singles rack, so it mightr have been old. Good nose, lemon, straw, bready yeasty. Orange yellow color. Small head that disappeared quick. Sweet and bitter, though certainly not a big bitter. Fruity, lemon/orange, little metallic. Kinda creamy, oily. Smooth dry sour finish. Tasty, though I would think a tad fruity for a classic Pils. I suppose thats why they say a Pilsner style ale. Slowly I start to like Pilsners and Lagers

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - JUN 14, 2004
Poured a slightly hazy medium gold color with a moderate head and light but fairly durable lacing. Pleasant and mild yeasty hoppy aroma. Light bodied and tangy with a well balanced and slightly sweet lemon-pepper flavor that hit the spot. Dryish slightly fruity finish.

grat (433) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 11, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2005 I like this brew. There are way better pilseners out there. But this one has a different more refreshing hop bite than the more standard ones. Light yellow dead head. Smells like cascades to me even though there arent any in it. Taste is clean and refreshing, notes of lime, sea salt and hops. Very tasty grat

badgerben (4502) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 10, 2004
Pours a yellowish color with a thin head. Aroma is a bit musty, which seems to be the standard among pilsners. The taste wasn’t much different: a little malt, a little hops, nothing more, nothing less. Eh, it wasn’t offensive.

steview (1029) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 9, 2004
duvel tulip glass: dark straw body. thin white head. it’s got that german malt aroma. it’s crisp indeed, not quite clean, and trys to finish nicely. there's a medicinal cloy i don't enjoy. however, it’s good to wash down those greasy american foods with a cheap pils!
