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.

oh6gdx (24852) - 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 (690) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 7, 2006
Bottled. It’s 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 (10351) - 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.

Tyler*Durden (72) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 30, 2005
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.

DuffMan (9201) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 30, 2005
Hazy orange-yellow, small head, no lace. Malty aroma, a little yeast, and a little orange peel. Palate has a strange shortbread flavour, sweet malt, fruity hops, and a moderately bitter finish. Thin bodied overall, but I thought it was okay.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2005
Deep amber color with a slight cloudyness. Fizzy with a short head. Somewhat fruity flavor that sours quickly.

progrock (21) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 29, 2005
Pours straw-yellow with little to no head. Neither hoppy nor malty in aroma or flavor. Thin, grassy, slightly cardboardy and uninspired. Dry, clean finish. Pleasant but forgettable.

thebeertourist (5175) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 29, 2005
Hazy golden with a quickly disappearing head. Nice hoppy aroma, but also some malty sweetness.Citrus. The initial taste is sweet, but there is some bitterness as well. Caramel and citrus. Short aftertaste and light body. Medium carbonated. Nice session beer, but not a lot of character.

oldrtybastrd (4951) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2005
Pours a nice light golden yellow. Aromas of hops, grass, and maybe corn. Taste is crisp with a nice mellow hop flavor.

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - DEC 25, 2005
Golden. A white head not lasting long at all. Aroma from grass and citrus. Flavor is little malty and sweet. Fruity but comes of bitter in the end.
