Scrimshaw has a subtle hop character, a crisp, clean palate, and a dry finish.
Thar She blows - Water, malted barley, hops and yeast. "Who’s to doom, when the judge himself is dragged to the bar?" Imagine swilling this beer alongside Ishmael. Named for the delicate artform popularized by New England seafarers, when the whaling industry was at its peak, Scrimshaw is a fresh tasting Pilsner brewed using Munich malt, Hallertauer and Tettnang hops.
Like the intricate and delicate carving of bone and ivory by sailors on long voyages, this pilsner lends to the complex, yet subtle aromas and flavors of citrus, hops and spice. There is a strong, impressive level of citrus sweetness, perhaps tangerine peel. A veritable bouquet of hop aromas, it has a clear golden yellow body with a pillowy white head and good retention. The very end fades away in a slightly dry fashion leaving the drinker with a refreshing feeling...like getting splashed by a surge. Just as the Scrimshander carved pieces from bone or ivory as a product of their idle time, drink this refreshing pilsner while engaging in the act of loafing or singing bawdy sailor songs.
