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.

Sparkling golden colour with a persistent white head. Aromas of sweet malt and Irish whiskey, oddly enough. There is a chemical freshness along with peachy nectar. I’m undecided as to whether this is an asset or not. On the whole I have decided that I quite like the smell. In the mouth there is an enormous amount of carbonation that brings out slightly tart fruity juiciness and some of the more mellow malt characters. This is a pilsner, but not like I know it. It finishes with an almost Granny Smith apple crispness but I am left wondering about a few things. It wouldn’t slot nicely into the style, it is a curious creature but not without its charms. Does this oddness harm the overall response to the beer and should it be regarded along BJCP guidelines? I’ll prevaricate and judge it whether I liked it or not along with consideration for what it would do if judged more critically. I did quite like it, I have had less charming beers but I’m looking forward to something different next.

Pours a light, sparking yellow. The brief head is gone in an instant. There is no aroma at all. Water is as aromatic as this beer. The flavor still manages to taste like a pilsner. I’m not the world’s biggest pilsner fan, so that might not be a compliment. There is a little malt, on the flavor, some fruity yeast, and then mild hops. Goes down clean. Leaves no impression.

Decent enough pils, but nothing too sparkly. Pale gold color. Hay, malt on the nose. Body is a light creamy with grainy and hay body. Drinkable.

Listigovers (449) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2015
Nice smell for a pilsner, grainy with some hops. Creamy light and easy drinking, mild bitterness in aftertaste, a pilsner with a bit more while staying simple.

asheft (2680) - 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 (2607) - 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.
