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.

Light gold in color, mildly sweet, not as much hop/dry character as in the best pilsener, but quite refreshing at times.

stevoj (3931) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Bottle at Kibroms.Average appearance, grainy aroma, comes off kind of the lager side. Lightly hopped, mild bite at the end, could use a bit more hops. Overall, not too bad, but pales in comparison to its German ancestors.

Draught at The Beer Trappe. I know I’ve had this but never rated it. The pils from North America. Crushable. Flavorful. Excellent.

Nice pilsner. Little multiprocessor and heavier in body than is traditional, but still very drinkable. I’ll have more.

This beer tastes and smells exactly like Scrubbing Bubbles. Seriously. Next time you have it, spray some Scrubbing Bubbles on the counter and compare. It’s the same thing.

coldbrewky (1687) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2016
Draft at the Spotty Dog: A pleasant and refreshing brew, yet it comes up lacking for my Pilsener loving self. Nose and body is Hay and grass. Body and finish could use more malt and hops. Some lemon notes that seem out of place.

BrewDragon (11) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 6, 2016
To me, this was a pretty balanced Pils. It pours a nice, foamy head, but dissipates quickly. A snort produced a very subtle nose of some of the domestic, corporate brews. Still, I found it to be a very palatable beer with a mild finish.
