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.

Nice deep yellow nearly orange colored brew with a fizzy layer of a head that left laces on top. Grape and hops nose - medium to light intense. Grape medium taste with kind of a nearly apricot like undertone. Very round but all in all weak. Still a nice summer beer - lawnmower beer - I could drink it while pivo is mowing the lawn- hehe!

pivo (2657) - GERMANY - MAR 22, 2005
Doughy malt nose with some hops, hazy pale gold color, low scumy head. Toasted matl effect initially - usual for a pils. Low broad bitter - wanted more hop flavor. Medium body. Reserved and well-balanced. Reflects sophisticated brewing.

sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2005
Light orange/golden; small, white, bubbly head. Aroma floral and citrusy. Flavor bready/malty up front with a light hop bitterness and excellent grassiness in the finish. Thin. Fairly bland but, at least, drinkable. At first I didn’t care for this but it’s actually not bad.

Slighty cloudy golden color with a white head. Slight malt aroma. Flavor is sweet, crisp and malty.

Jon wants this beer rated higher, and I’ll give in to some extent. It looks nice and tastes thin. Still, an easy to drink pilsner that (I suppose) is better than average. Drink fast.

Jonathan3584 (323) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Nice golden color under a pure white head that dissipated quickly and left some nice lacing. Flavor is a little simple, but hoppier than most pilsners I’ve had. Incredibly easy drinking, but a little wanting of flavor.

Tejas (973) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Almost no aroma. Somewhat hoppy. Leaves a slight tingle on the tongue. Crisp & clean. OK everyday beer but that’s it. One & done.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - FEB 24, 2005
Copper gold, not much head. Nose lightly hoppy, some bready malts. Crisp and hoppy, somewhat sweet, some berry fruitiness. A nondescript but reasonably refreshing pils.

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2005
Yellow color with little white head. Not much smell or taste to speak of. Not much more to say about this beer other than to fill up the space in this box.....Done!

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Pale yellow pour with a very thin white head. Nice malty aroma with the slightest hint of hops. Very mild flavor, mainly of malt with a slight hop bite at the end and the faintest of aftertastes. A bit watery in the body though. I could definitely drink a bunch of these though.
