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. Iím 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 wouldnít 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? Iíll 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 Iím looking forward to something different next.

Panzerfaust (762) - 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 doesnít show anything remarkable.

Scrimshaw is one that Iíve put off having for some strange reason. Itís one of North Coastís most accessible brews in terms of distribution. Having now tasted it, I can say thatís 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. Thatís sort of odd for whatís usually such a crisp, clean style, but I enjoyed it.

Draft pour to a schooner at Elliott bay pizza. Pours a clear golden color with a ton of fizz head and lace. Very high carb here. Light body, grain heavy flavor. High carb burn late. Odd beer for me. Too much carb, not enough flavor. There is likely a time and place for this beer, and I missed out on both. Will try again later.
