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.

Caramel malts, with grassy hops in aroma. Taste is simialr an quite drinkable, and quite balanced also. Minimal wychwood burntish taste which can only be a good thing.

This 500 ml bottle is labeled: Wychwood Scarecrow Golden Pale Ale Pours a dark, cloudy straw color with a smaller than average head and a little bit of lacing. Smell is citrus with a hint of malt. Feels a bit more carbonated than it acts. Taste is malt / citrus with a bit of bitterness. Aftertaste is a bit metallic. A pretty smooth, very drinkable ale - this is from a mainly pilsner drinker. Would buy again.

This was an all organic beer. The 500 ml. bottle poured a sparkling clear golden colored beverage with a small smooth white head that was mostly diminishing but left some lacing on the glass. The aroma had a rich roasted malt character with nice undertones of floral hops. The body was medium to full with lively carbonation and a dry, clean texture. The initial flavor was slightly bitter with a sweet background. The finish was long and brought out a bit of an alcohol warmth to accompany the nice bitter end.

Bottle. Nice hop aroma of sweet fruit. Almost clear copper colour. Stable white head. Thin mouthfeel. Flavour is yeasty with some aromatic hoppiness. Slightly above medium bitterness. Watery aftertaste.

larsga (7292) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2006
Big, offwhite, coarse-laced head which shrinks quickly. Very faintly hazy golden body with a tiny amount of carbonation going on. Faint, sweet, apple-like aroma. Sourish, apple-like taste with faintly dry aftertaste. Mouthfeel, and indeed taste, is quite watery, as like apple juice that’s been watered down a little too much. Some spice lingering in the aftertaste. Ok, quite refreshing, but nothing special, and a minus for the wateriness.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 7, 2006
Bottled. Golden, weakly hazy, color with mediumsized white head which disappears quite fast. Aroma of skunked flowery hops. Flavour is smooth hops, but quite watery. Not bad, but a bit too "one-dimensional" and boring.

mabjork (691) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 7, 2006
Bottled. Itís pale yellow with minor white head. The aroma mainly consists of hops. The flavour is sweetish with hops and has a watery after taste.

shrubber85 (10669) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2005
Bottle. Nice barley malt aroma (smelled a little skunky in the bottle but that seemed to all but disappear after pouring into a glass). Orangish-amber color with nice head. Sour barley malt flavor with mild but long lingering hops finish. Moderate carbonation especially for the style. Not an ale for those who like draughts but overall a nice tasty beer.

Aroma is not particularly distinctive, or pleasing for that matter. Hazy aspect to the colour. As with the aroma, did not find the taste very distinctive either and found it a bit thin. Not bad, but would not recommend.
