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.

To me, this beer was completely tasteless. This could be good or bad ... if I was in college, this would definitely be good, because I could slam it in a minute. Yet, it’s expensive. So for the refined market, it is not complex enough to impress or warrant such a price. I have enjoyed some North Coast brews, this one was below average.

Bottle at the Hopleaf in Chicago. Cloudy yellow, little head. Bright and fruity and a bit sweetness that lends sort of an iced tea character. I wouldn’t really call this a pilsener in any traditional sense but it is damn fine and underrated lager beer.

Pours golden with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma is lightly malty with some light hops. Taste has notes of lemon, grain and grassiness. Can use more malt backing, sweetness and hop "zing". Mouthfeel is round and crisp. Overall, not awful very boring. It's surprising they can make a brew as great as Old Stock Ale and release this.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2006 Not a bad pils... very dry to the taste. It pours a decent head (that soon fades away) over a bubbly golden body. Nice mild malt aroma. A clean drink.

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.
