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.

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.

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.

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.

Buukwurm (42) - California, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Golden color with foamy head. Fine lively bubbles. characteristic pilsner aroma although not as pronounced as others in the style. Less bitter than other pilsners. Also detected is a little bit of what I would call a cheap lager (Lucky Lager, Hams, Burgie). Medium, lively body. Short finish

Amarelo citrino com espuma branca persistente. Suave, com malte mais evidente que o amargor

Panzerfaust (785) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAR 7, 2016
12 fl. oz. bottle from Club de Cervezas. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is restrained with grain and hay dominating with soft herbal and flowery touches. Notes of lemongrass, bread, haystack, green garden herbs and some flowers. Quite weak. Taste has semi-bitter character, with biscuity flavors dominating hints of bread, grains, lemon and grass. Not bad but nothing outstanding here. Light bodied. Pretty dry finish, high carbonation. Crisp and refreshing. Drinkable. This is one efficient, by-the-book german-style Pils that doesn’t show anything remarkable.

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 clean, refreshing. not to hoppy, good summer beer.

Bottle, Brewdog Leicester. Golden with a white head. Cereal grain with mellow lemon and hints of apricot. Light grassiness with damp cardboard and an oily, butter palate. Dry finish. OK.

Scrimshaw is one that I’ve put off having for some strange reason. It’s one of North Coast’s most accessible brews in terms of distribution. Having now tasted it, I can say that’s true of the beer itself too. Nose is mild with bread and cereal grains. Flavor has smooth lager yeast and herbal hops. Feel is surprisingly sticky for the style. That’s sort of odd for what’s usually such a crisp, clean style, but I enjoyed it.
