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.

This beer tastes and smells exactly like Scrubbing Bubbles. Seriously. Next time you have it, spray some Scrubbing Bubbles on the counter and compare. Itís the same thing.

coldbrewky (1673) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2016
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 doesnít 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.
