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.

On tap at a restaurant. Very clean crisp dry prototypical German style pilsner. Nice slightly sudsy mouthful and soft touch of hops in the finish.

Atom (1628) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2015
12oz bottle pours a clear golden with a large white head. Aroma of stale bready malt, pils yeast, and some grassy hop spice. Taste similar to aroma minus any hops.

Clean finish, and a nice, resiny taste. Not the best Pilsner I’ve had, but a good complement to a full meal. I could’ve used more of an aftertaste, but it got the job done. Recommended, if not heartily.

Pours yellow golden from bottle, decent white head. Minimal malty aroma. Taste is sweet on front end, light malt complexity, negligible hoppy bitterness. Light body with medium carbonation. Overall refreshing but not hoppy enough for a Pilsner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
