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.

GaltScat (195) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 19, 2008
Pours a hazy honey color with only a slight head that quickly reduces to a thin white ring. Lacing is sparse but fine and even. Aroma is standard pilsner, light grain, and slightly sweet. A bit-o-honey hint as well. Flavor is very light, but slightly tart and a little hoppy. Carbonation is moderate to soft and the fel is light and a bit thin. Aftertaste is a cardboard and honey flavor.

Gold with lacy thin white head; aroma is lightly malty and grainy; Flava is malty notes of honey; feels light and fizzy; finishes dry slightly tart and hint of hops.

Reimer96 (1171) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
Not a huge fan of the style but it’s to style. Pours a clear golden yellow with a frothy white head. Aroma of sweet pil malts, yeast and crisp nobel and German hops. Taste is pil malts, grassy, earthy German hops and some spicy nobel bitterness. Finish is crisp and clean like a pilsner should be.

Meh- tastes like a pilsner. Pours light, tastes light- biscuit and malt dominate- and not much memorable about it. Might do in a pinch, ice cold, after mowing the lawn. Just average.

Shot (114) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2014
On tap. Golden color with thin white head which dissipates completely. No lacing. Aromas are faint--sweet malt and muted hops. Flavors are light, but well balanced. Slight citrusy and biscuity notes. No pronounced hop aroma or bite, which is disappointing for a pilsener. This drinks more like a golden ale. Not bad, but not very memorable.

On tap @GarricksHeadPub. Mild, mellow, light, easy, unassuming -- leaning toward bland.

ryecatcher (735) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy pale straw color, thin white head with average retention and lacing. Nose smells like... well, a Pilsner. Noble hops, mildly malty. Mouth is clean and mildly malty, balanced with hop bitterness.Finishes clean. A very basic interpretation of the style. Average, but drinkable.

TATE (285) - Lubec, Maine, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a thin white head. Minimal floral aroma. Fairly good balance between malt and hops though pretty light on flavor. It does have a nice dry finish and easy drinking but nothing really stands out.

Bottle pour at Edmonton Craft Beer Fest ’14. Golden and clear with a light white cap. Grainy aroma, toasty. Taste has grains and bready sweetness and a grassy dry finish. Pretty basic pils, easy drinker.
