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.

Not that bad, I could still taste the traditional north coast dark choco-roasted flav.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - APR 13, 2003
Pale golden hue. Big carbonation. Skunky hopped up nose. Sticky white head. Pale malts first, light bodied, resinous, floral. Nothing spectacular, but definately drinkable. Finishes clean and crisp, with a lingering bitterness.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2003 A good pilsner, but nothing special. Light taste with some hops on the finish.

Has a nice golden color and a malted smell. Taste was somewhat smooth and malted and finished pretty refreshing. Overall I would never have guessed this as a pilsner, but it was pretty good anyway.

Weak, for North Coast. Nothing special. Doesn't even really taste like pilsener.

kyzr (1147) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - MAR 23, 2003
Nice thick looking pils. Good head that leaves a little lace on the glass. Nice malt with good hop finsih. A good beer that welcomes the sole to drink.

Not much aroma. Nice color. Good original taste. Not a bad beer. Good amount of carbonation.

redlem (1301) - Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2003
Slightly hazy golden color with a thin white head that quickly disappeared, odd for a pils. Upon closer inspection the haze is from sedimentation. Nice carbonation. Not much aroma, maybe an old cardboard box. Not much taste either, a slight cookie dough. I could taste and smell more hops in their stout, which is an odd choice. A below average pils.

I picked this up because the name reminded me of my childhood trip out east to Boston and Nantucket Island, where scrimshaw is found everywhere, from museums to my relatives' homes.

Anyhoo, the beer poured a hazy golden color with a grand white head, lacing included. Aroma is flowery, but very bland. Finally, a pilsener that doesn't smell like a skunk! Very light bodied, buttery, and lightly malted. Low bitterness at the backend, and finish is watery and nearly non-existant. A rather inoffensive beer, especially for a pilsener, but it sadly doesn't live up to the memories from my vacation.
