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.

Dorwart (2375) - 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.

Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - MAR 17, 2004
Golden yellow elixer, snow white head that leads to beautiful lacing on the glass. Light, clean well balanced Pils aroma. Crisp, clean taste. Finally! A Lager I can drink.

DCopperfields (145) - Alabama, USA - MAR 11, 2004
Poured light gold, the color of straw. Good, fluffy head which dissipated over a couple of minutes, but left impressive lace as I consumed this. Aroma of malty grain and hop, just slight. Flavor of malt up front followed by a mild hop bitterness which jived well with the malt. A crisp, easy drinking beer. A very good pilsner. I will be drinking this again.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - MAR 3, 2004
Very thin, watery, somewhat honey taste to it. On the other hand it's easy to drink, but it almost seems to have like a good Macro taste or something?

Braudog (5748) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - FEB 29, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2012 Poured with a nice big white sticky head over clear golden goodness. Impressive hop-malt aroma. Velvety smooth. Citric bit over balanced continental pilsner.

On tap. Had a pale appearance with good lacing on the glass. A pretty crisp flavor, but a little bit bland.

This beer is a true pilsner with a typical and average taste/aroma/appearance. The beer lacks substance, something North Coast's other beer have. I felt bored and unmotivated to like it. Though on second thoughts, maybe i was just dissapointed and did not appreciate it is crisp and clean palate (as it claims). I gave it a couple of tries, some better than others depending on what i had eaten/drank before it. Still better than crappy Macro pilsners, but still a lackluster beer.

kujo9 (1093) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2004
Hazy gold w/ a thin white short lived head. Light malty aroma w/ diacetyl in the immediate nose, becomes more grainy malt as it warms and has no hop aroma that I can detect. Flavor is grainy malt, not really munich w/ a little green apple, but has hints of bitterness in the finish and a light hop flavor in the aftertaste. It's highly carbonated producing a biting carbonic bite, light bodied and not really smooth at all. Definitely not my favorite beer from North Coast as it's fairly lifeless overall, but has more character than most Am. lights. In it's defense, this might be past it's prime, but not oxidized yet so I'll re rate if I get a better bottle.

rudolf (2341) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2004
Light malt, lemon aroma. Almost a bit musty. Hazy with no real head. Light in taste, somewhat sour

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