COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: pasteurised.
Previously sold as Circle Master in the UK.
Traditionally craft brewed in Oxfordshire using organically grown English Barley Malt and Organic Target Hops. Scarecrow is a wonderfully refreshing Golden Ale evoking lazy, hazy days of summer in golden meadows & ripe barleyfields. A winning combination of tart citric fruit flavours perfectly balanced by a rich biscuity maltiness and rounded off with a spicy bittersweet finish.

Pours yellow with thin white head with good lacing. Nose is slightly skunky. The front half of the taste is lost in skunk. The latter half is hoppy and might be pleasant if this beer had not been ruined by ultraviolet light. Sigh.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 2, 2003
Light copper hue. Some carbonation. Pleasant enough looking head. Mild aroma of yeast, malt, and a little of hops. Reasonably bitter with a bit of malty aftertaste/residue in the mouth. Didn't taste a whole lot different than Fiddler's Elbow to me.

Otje (678) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2007
Huh, 19 percentile points? Maybe itís me, but i liked it, certainly after you drank Wieckse Rose. Brown 500ml. bottle. Nice pineapply and peachy hop aromas. Good bitter, hoppy taste with some more fruit and some grainy malt. Ends hopbitter and a little sweet. Nice and drinkable and no skunk in sight!!

aubreya (676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2007
The color was a light orange/golden. The head was creamy and white. The aroma was wet dog, corny, and macrobrewed. The flavor very light spice and some sweet malt. The palate was lively. The finish was abrupt.

Drink4Satan (676) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 8, 2007
Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a medium sized white head consisting of soapy bubbles that diminishes quickly. Faint hops in the aroma with a bit of corn/vegatable oil. Tastes BORING, and not only does it look soapy, but it tastes soapy, too. It isnít as bitter as it is bitter-sweet, with some light fruity notes. The hops are lemony and grassy and the malty backbone is bready/grainy and weak. At least the body wasnít really thin.
