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.

I find it hard to believe when breweries can simultaneously produce things with a reputation like Old Rasputin and drivel like this. It’s either market forces or something inherent in the style. Dense, regular lacing, almost completely diminishing. Bubbles in body were not clear streams but a chaos; curious. Strong yellow color. Sweet at the front, then replaced by a pair of curious flavors--floral and metallic. Palate was very disappointing--limp, thin, disgusting. I ended up pouring some of this out--it’s not worth the calories.

A pretty lively Pilsner. Good hop bitterness and flavor. Fairly clean, but sweeter than I was expecting in the finish. I’ll stick with Old Ras.

This is good American Pilsner. The progenitor of American Micro Pilsner family, of which St. George is a direct descendent and Victory and Tupper being hoppier cousins. Lovely hop nose with good malt and hop flavor. Easy drinking. While this is a fine beer, I can’t help prefer its progeny. Have had some rather awful samples in the past.

Smells weird. Doesn’t smell like the Hallertauer or Tettnang hops- and is generally weak on the hop presence. There is goodness here, but in strange places. Doesn’t taste like a "pilsener flavored" beer, but also doesn’t taste like a true pilsener beer either. Little watery, not a crisp finish, and generally floral but not bitter finish. Surely somebody accidentally dropped some Cascade in there or something. Smoothness as in a Czech beer, but not right on that either--lacks body and substance. Mediocre offer from a GREAT brewery. Maybe this one is for the bud light drinkers who "don’t like that dark stuff."

Weak pils. I expected better from Northcoast.

Not very impressed with this one. Pours golden with a white head. Has little hop flavor and is rather bland and tasteless.

Gold color, large head. Malty and mildly hoppy. Light and refreshing, Good hop to malt flavor. Somewhat fruity (orange) Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 3, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2011 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Too sweet for a pilsner. Ok aroma though.

Straw colored and a bit cloudy. Very strong taste at first fading into watery nothingness. Annoying aftertaste.
