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.

asheft (2677) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2015
On tap at Sugar, Peoria. Sweet pilsner malt and hay aroma with faint, spicy noble hops. Clear gold under white wisps. Clean and crisp pilsner flavour and feel with a moderate bitterness that leaves the balance a bit sweet. Medium body, medium carbonation.

maekchu (2602) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Light malty nose, with grain, small fruit, and very gentle hops. Clear medium gold color, thin head, good lace. Thin grainy initial, a light hit of malt sweetness, and bit bready. Thin body. Decent enough pils, but doesn’t have much character.

Pours very clear with sediments on the bottom. Aroma is malty with hints of yeast, normally i don´t like this but in this particular beer it was well done. Taste is crisp and nice as expected from a lager fermented beer. Well balanced bitterness. Great American craft pilsner! Bottle from SB.

Atom (1668) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2015
12oz bottle pours a clear golden with a large white head. Aroma of stale bready malt, pils yeast, and some grassy hop spice. Taste similar to aroma minus any hops.

tubafatness (19) - Bowling Green, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Clean finish, and a nice, resiny taste. Not the best Pilsner I’ve had, but a good complement to a full meal. I could’ve used more of an aftertaste, but it got the job done. Recommended, if not heartily.
