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.

Shot (103) - Westerville, 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 (717) - 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.

Idiosynkrasie (3574) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2014
355ml bottle. Clear golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, barely lacing, white head. Grainy, slightly strawy aroma, flat bitter hoppy overtones. Taste is initially purely malty, minimally sweet, minimally grainy, later with floral hoppy overtones. Well, it’s a Pilsener.

chucklemation (404) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Pours a golden yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma is very faint, some wheat and caramel and malts. Flavor is even more faint, just some carbonated malts. Has a light body feel. Nothing makes this stand out. It’s a pretty bland beer, unfortunately.

Sample pour at a festival. Pours almost clear gold with a fizzy white head . tastes like musky grains, light sweet corn and hops. Smells like musky grains and light hops.
