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.

Golden color. Decent head, goes away though. Body is pretty malty for a pilsner, but they didn’t get as much taste out of the malt I feel. Lightly hopped. Not bad.

Nice grassy and slightly hoppy aromas form the initial pouring. The beer has a muted gold coloring and a large white head. Looks better than most pilseners The smell reminds me of clay, for some reason. The taste is light and refreshing. It has a saty taste with some potato chips? A decent example of the style, but I have had better.

12oz brown short neck bottle served into a hard ,clear plastic pilsner glass while camping . I like the look of this beer nice deep golden colour,slightly on the dark side for a typical pilsner,with a large creamy pure white head. A very substancial aroma for a pilsner, a varied mix of malt and good hoppiness..some lemon like scent, too weird. Taste..well i have to say its a strange taste for a pils, its got quite a bit of hop bitterness, but the hops appear to me to be cascade.,i also detected a slighly lemony taste this begins to taste like a pils/ american wheat cross..very odd . It has a pretty nice feel on the palate, with a semi-dry finish. Quite a drinkabke beer..but its far from being a pils..however I enjoyed it anyway and judged it from taste rather than style.

(12 oz bottle) Slightly cloudy and pale yellow in color, this mild flavored pilsener is lightly malty and mildly bitter, but there is a vague cardboard flavor; Perhaps a slight citrus flavor in the background, and the finish is rather weak; The flavor has very little sweetness, and the palate is dry and fairly clean, but could be more crisp with some more hops in the mix; The nose is on the light side, somewhat sweet with some light malt and hops aromas; Off-white head with retention, but supported by large and very lively carbonation bubbles; Large, patchy lacing is pretty solid; Overall, just kind of boring and uninspired

Golden in color, with a foamy white head. A subtle hop taste, with a little grain in the background. Has a little bit of sweetness as well. I think this is a pretty good little pilsner.

Straw color appearance with a small head and a modest aroma. Well carbonated with a hint of sweetness in the flavor. Light-bodied with a crisp, dry, refreshing uncomplicated taste that is exactly what you want sometimes.

shadey (2079) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 1, 2004
UPDATED: APR 12, 2005 Pour is golden with plenty of carbonation and a bubbly head that quickly disapeared. Not a strong aroma. Just a touch of hops. The flavor is weak. Just a touch of hops bitterness. Not a bad beer at all. Just not an award winner.

Beer pours medium golden with a dissipating egg white head. Aroma has much more malt presence than your typical pils. Flavor is also rather malt driven with a malty grainess and some decent hoppiness that finishes somewhat dry. Pretty tasty.
