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.

lesifflebiere (1380) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2014
Couleur ambre, avec une faible mousse soutenue par une effervescence retenue. Nez en sucre candi et en caramel. La bouche est sucrée, mais avec une finale relativement amère : le problème est que, malgré tout, elle est plutôt aqueuse. Sinon, les saveurs sont à peu près dans les tons. Il ne s’agit en fait que d’une timide bitter, trop timide même, mais pas méchante du tout.

_BaR_ (20) - Padova, ITALY - JUN 22, 2014
Aroma scarso. In bocca appare per lo più il malto, ma resta leggera e ben bilanciata. Un po’ banale, può andar bene per mangiare una pizza.

stantheman (680) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
A 50 cl bottle from BCL stores. A pleasantly orange amber beer with a bit of whitish head. A trace of malt on the nose. A slightly hopped, slightly fruity-citrus, mostly malted beer, with a medium length malted finish. Pleasant summer drinking, but why anyone would bother to ship a beer like this all the way from England is rather beyond me. 2.8.

Vighals (1540) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2014
Mørk gylden klar brun med beige skum. Humle, lett karamell og blomsterlukt. Smaker bitter humle og brent karamell. Minimalt med kullsyre. Fin bitter ettersmak.

Holmen2 (1434) - NORWAY - JUN 2, 2014
Dark golden, little head. Metallic and sugary aroma with grass, hay, straw and a hint of citrus. Also metallic taste and bitterness, balanced with sweetness. Decent aftertaste.

Gurthnar (2374) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle. Aroma has some vomit, metallic, really bad. Clear golden colour. Taste is really vomity, thin, bitter. One of those that stimulate the antiperistaltic reflex. Really bad.

Flasa - Miro. Tmavo hneda zlata farba, pena biela, okamzite padla. Prilis sladka, zelezita vona, ako zvratky. Chut prilis sladovo sladka, zelezita, jemne karamel, opat zvratky.

Nice pale color but not very flavorful, very dry finish. Certainly smells better than it tastes -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

50 cl bottle Golden colour, white foam. Nose is light and bad. Too carbonated, light mouthfeel. Pale malt, some hops. Bleah!
