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.

DenverLogan (940) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2015 From a 12oz bottle into a Mad Elf tulip glass. Pours gold with head and lace. Aroma of grains, light pepper, malts, hay. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of grains, wheat, amber malts, light herbs, minerals, slight tropical fruit rind sweetness. Overall flavorful, refreshing, zesty.

Bottle. Citrus, grainy barley malt, and straw aroma. Golden yellow with giant white head. Sweet lemon, barley malt, and mildly bitter hay flavor. Decent body.

On tap at Bethesda Food and Beverage. Straw body with little head. Nose is rather bland, some wheat. Taste is malts, dry, straw. Somer carbonation. Dry again in the finish.

beer_rookie (179) - Arkansas, USA - AUG 11, 2015
Glass bottle. No expiry date. So who knows.

Pours a honey color. About one finger head. Doesn’t last long. Does leave a little around the edge of the surface. No lacing.

Aroma is light. Not a lot of anything. Breadiness. Lemon zest. That’s about all.

I might as well be drinking bread. That’s about all I can taste. Again there is some citrus or lemon in there. It tastes pretty good but there’s not much to say about it.

Mouthfeel is medium. It tastes light. It finishes slightly bitter but smooth.

Overall its okay. I think its slightly off for a pilsner. Not as good as I expected or hoped for, but still not bad.

ALLOVATE (2683) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 7, 2015
Into a tulip chilled. Pastel orange and hazy with a lot of protein caught in suspension. Nose hints at gooseberries and blackbutt honey, pot pourri, leavened dough and a hint of cough medicine that is just a little leftfield. Buttery, caramel and soapy on the palate saying that this sample is a little over ’consume by’. Prickly carbonation lets way to a soft finish that hints at pepper and stale hops. Diacetyl slick with a hint of sherry that builds, I’m guessing maybe two years or more in the bottle. Need a fresh one..., quick like! (12fl.Oz, no date stamp, Int’l Beer Shop, Leederville)

What exactly do you compare this to? Honestly it doesn’t have much of a taste or smell. It vaguely is sweetness balanced with crisp and maybe some cereal or wheat basics. Very light carbonation, I poured it from a glass bottle. Very light alcohol, I didn’t feel it. I’d drink this on a warm day or maybe just casually. But I wouldn’t buy it, it doesn’t taste like anything.

mmmbeer (1335) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2015
12 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a transparent solid yellow color, 1.5mm white head formed but did not lace at all. Aroma of cigarette butts (the cheap ones, trust me on that) and light malt. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt tastes like it has some wheat in it which makes it a little refreshing more than normal, middle has that same cigarette butt taste as I smelt in the aroma, finish is only partly clean and still retains that same damn cigarette butt taste. Can’t tell if it’s Pall Mall Blue 100’s, Camel Filter, or Viceroy’s- still, a little disgusting, even for a smoker like me!

Your basic, refreshing American Craft Beer. Maybe even the Budweiser of Craft? Meant it as a compliment but take it how you like.
