Appearance: This beer is a deep golden yellow with slight orange highlights. There is a slight chill haze to the beer and a beautiful snowy white pure head.
Smell: This beer smells of rich bready malt. There is a slight caramel sweetness light a light soda or flat coke. Grains definitely are the dominate aroma in this beverage.
Taste: This beer taste of apricots and fresh milled grain. There is a slight hop bitterness but primarily it's a two note wonder with a battle between dried apricots and grain.
Mouthfeel: This beer has more body that I expect and fairly high carbonation. The carbonation is biting on the front of the tongue and is definitely felt after the swallow.
Drinkability: I could kick back a few of these, but it is honestly not as light or crisp as I would expect from a Pilsner.
OVERALL IMPRESSION: I was really expecting more from this beer. The beer though lack is complexity and truly lacks in the crisp fresh feeling I want from a nice Pils. I would say it's worth a try if you can find a single bottle. However, if you have to get a six pack look for another Pils out there.

Wow, just keep coming back to this one. Poured into a shorty. Has a lively pumpkin glow. Inviting for sure. But what really makes it special is the citrus aroma. It's outstanding with every sip (or gulp). Non of the mustyness that comes with many pills. And the taste is exceptional. Scrimshaw takes you on a nice bright flavor ride before pulling back to a clean satisfying finish. Could drink this one all the time -- wait, i do!
