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.

Tsekouratos (197) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - FEB 17, 2014
500 ml bottle shared with Calm_Dreamer. Golden body with a soapy white head. Aromas of malts??? Maybe some earthy hops. Taste was malts? Nothing too prominent so couldn’t really understand. No aftertaste. Light body with way too much carbonation. Bad!!

zgaier (1365) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Pours a clear orange with a white head and malty, grainy aroma. Taste is similar, malty and grainy with caramel and biscuit bread notes with not a lot of flavor.

Jamedra (447) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 3, 2014
Láhev 500 ml. Aroma je lehké chmelové s jemný sladovým nádechem. Pěna je jasně bílá, jemná, vysoká a pomalu mizící. Barva samotného piva je zlatá. Chuť je vcelku mdlá, je zde znát jen slad s opravdu slabým banánovým nádechem, který rychle přechází do držícího finiše který není příliš příjemný. Čekal jsem od tohoto piva trochu něco víc, postrádá pestrost.

Melkart (285) - Porto Alegre, BRAZIL - FEB 2, 2014
Very light and good drinkability. Herbal aroma and light biscuit sweet taste. Light body and light carbonation.

500 mL bottle. Pours a light golden colour with a very thin head. Very mild flavour, with light bitter notes.

probstblueribbon (2892) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2014
500 mL bottle from LCBO served cool in a tulip glass. Clear deep golden with a decent white head. Smells like a decent Pilsner, Pils malt, peppery, grassy hops, light sulphur note, a touch fruity, quite pleasant, hardly an ESB. Medium body, gentle carbonation, feels soft. Pils malt, grassy, hay, straw, a hint of fruitiness, a decent Pils; dry with pretty good bitterness and a clean, Pilsner finish. On an hedonic scale, this tastes well for me. Style-wise, it would fail miserably.

16.9 oz bottle pours golden with a white head. Aroma of malts, grass and a hint of pine. Taste is malts and grain. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
