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.

Clear and orange in color. Slightly bubbly with a grainy aroma. The flavor is mellow and sweet.

The aroma is a bit citrusy, like a mild IPA. There’s a hint of wheat in there, too. The brew is a pale gold, very typical of a pilsner. The head is white and takes a good while to settle. The taste is primarily that of wheat with a backbeat of light malt. It’s a wonderful balance. The palate is a little smacked down by carbonation burn, but it passes fairly fast, revealing a very light oily quality left on the tongue. Honestly, I could drink this all day and would choose it over other pilsners when I’m in a pilsner mood.

355ml bottle from Brewdog Online Shop (£2.50):
Coming through with what turned out to be quite a standard pilsner taste, this one was a decidedly average beer that started slightly sweet & was followed up by some pleasant caramel & bread malts but never really done enough to fully grab my attention. There was a nice balance to what was quite an easy beer to drink & the moderate bitter finish rounded things off well, it’s just not one that I thought was particularly interesting or memorable; a nice beer but definitely not one to hunt for.

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.

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.
