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.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - APR 20, 2004
Clear light amber with a medium diminishing frothy white head. Aroma of honey, light bread, citrus - mostly lemon/lime, and pine. Light watery body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Slightly refreshing, but a little too light bodied for my tastes. Flavor of honey, light bread, allspice, pine and a hint of lime. Finishes bitter. Not balanced well, but still drinkable.

beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - APR 19, 2004
An excellent, well rounded beer. The pilsener flavors rise well as you drink it, and it has good darkened color. Hints of pepper, nuts? Definitely a beer to enjoy, and one I would have again.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2004
Pours straw, with not much head. Decent pils aroma. Tastes of hops, citrus, slightly dry. Smooth, crisp, clean finish. A worthy pils.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 5, 2004
Straw body, small white head, slight floral and mildly sweet nose. Crisp body, fruity, floral finish. Mild bitterness. Certainly drinkable, but not special.

invalid (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2004
Not bad. Very clear golden straw color that looked refreshing. Light head, some carbonation. Some Saaz like notes, but not too much going as far as malt and hop flavor.

NewYawker (15) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 29, 2004
A finely carbonated, effervescent yellowish beer. Crisp, hoppy smell, good body and smooth, dry finish. One of the best I have had.

jde123 (764) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 28, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2013 A fairly decent pilsener, one that I enjoyed quite a bit. Balanced hops/malts produces a nice but different taste and finish. moderate carbonation was a welcome surprise, although different from most pilseners. Good color.

desurfer (1219) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 27, 2004
Nice hoppy pils with a decent malty backbone. I could drink this a lot in warmer weather.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2004 Just what I like in a Pilsener, hops. Cloudy yellow color with nice sized, lasting white head As the temp goes up, so does the flavor with yeasty breadness.

Dorwart (2374) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 21, 2004
Good sized frothy head of large bubbles from the pour. Does not last long. Decent carbonation. Slightly skunky aroma and some grainy hops. Color is a bright gold. Almost glows in the glass. Flavor is light and crisp without much body or character. Finish is clean and leaves a slightly milky aftertaste in the mouth. A decent pilsner among many very bad pilsners.
