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.

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!

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 19, 2003
Floral, furity hop aroma. Clear golden body with a small white head. Crisp hop flavors up front, followed by fruity malty flavors. Decent pils.

Clear sparkling golden yellow. Head is rocky and white. Lacing is just OK. Aroma is slightly malty, kind of salty, and not very hoppy at all. Flavor is bready and clean. Hops come out more in the mouth then in the nose. Body is quite nice, medium with a tangy bitterness and a very clean and crisp finish. Pretty nice pilsner.

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2003
A pale yellow beer with very a very weak aroma. A nice flavor but a thin mouthfeel and weak flavor. OK, but not real good.

I love the hayfield smell of this beer. A well made domestic lager is a thing not oft explored in these USA parts. Sure it's subtle, but that doesn't mean it's watered down, which it isn't. Smells earthy and spicy-hoppy, not at all flowery or citric. The taste washes across the tongue with biscuity maltiness followed by a mild hoppy bitterness. Put down the Avery 10 anniversary for a week before tasting this beer and you will come away appreciative. Drink it from an earthenware crock.

BBB63 (5746) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2003
Golden hue with a initial large frothy head which did stay around for awhile and produced good lace. Aroma was that of buttery toffee, cookie dough, aromatic hops, hay field, and earthy esters. Slighty clean taste except for a papery finish. Smooth malt sweetness with just a touch bitterness for balance. Quaffable thin-bodied brew which is still better than many American pilsners on the market.

Pretty decent pilsner - not as good as the urquell, by a long shot, but I'd probably take it over most other pils's. Bland, watered-down tasting, of course.

The last couple beers I've tried from NCBC have failed to impress. They have been too watered down, and scrimshaw is no exception. I was looking for a more assertive character from this one.

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 14, 2003
A fizzy golden body supports a dense three finger white cumulonimbus like head. The flavor is lightly malty, some hints of caramel, kind of sweet, a few traces of honey; the nose has a nip of sweet aromatic hops. The finish is exceptionally crisp and smooth, nice palate for a pils.
A great beer for the Florida heat, not to complex but certainly not a brew that will contribute to boredom.

a good lager, much better than most. really does have a dry finish like it says. i think this is almost as good as heineken, but heineken is probably my favorite lager beer. yet to have a bad beer by this company
