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.

The texture of this beer is really off. Aroma almost nonexistent. There’s hardly any head, but that might be excusable with this style. However, carbonation is hardly present, leaving a waxy finish. Flavorwise, it’s average - the hops and malt do alternate well. I respect a company that makes a "simple brew" along with the others; however, the result in this case is something like stale Maypo without much sugar. By the way, their site states ABV 4.4%.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 1, 2004
Pours hazy golden-straw color with a good fizzy white head that doesn’t last long, not much lacing, light grassy and flowery aromas. Bready and grainy mild sweetness turns hoppy and bitter with some dryness in the finish. Light bodied with a soft but crisp carbonated mouthfeel, very clean and crisp, very nice.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - APR 21, 2004
Bottle 04.21.04. Pours a medium gold color, slightly clouded, pilsnerish head that fades quickly. Malt aromas are immediately evident, biscuity. Hops remind of canned mixed citrus fruits, band-aids(?). Flavor is lackluster, not nearly bitter enough to call a pilsner IMO. Watered down texture - sweet, not at all dry yet a citric acid finish. Re-thinking this beer as something other than a pils it becomes pretty tasty and quaffable in a lackluster PNW beer way.

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 (8054) - 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.

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.
