3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Quite like this. Smell is vaguely citrussy but mainly a bit sharp and yeasty, albeit in a good way. Head is weak and colour is too lagery. Flavour is unchallenging but satisfying - starting sweet and malty and rounding out bitter and refreshing. A fine session beer I would imagine, and I’ll make a point of having a session on it to see!

1.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Whew, massive skunk! I can almost get some light clean malts beneath the mercaptan, but the skunking was heavy and I even made a point of taking a bottle from the back of the shelf. Like their othe beers, smooth with ideal carbonation. The lighter malts in this one make this beer more one dimensionally hoppy, with the rise of bitterness in the finish. Hop flavors minimal, though its hard to judge given the mercaptan flavors mask any sublteties here.

Pour is a cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is suprisingly hoppy for an English ale. Flavor is super sweet with some caramel malts up front with a nice hoppy backbone. Gets points for suprising me. I though this would be crap reading some of the other reviews.

Bottle. Straw color with small white head that was gone instantly with no lacing. Light sour aroma. Light body with thin texture. Medium malty flavor with short finish. Interesting looking weak brew.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A golden ale that starts with a rocky head and ends with some lacing. Not much in the way of aromatics. Trace amounts of orange and honey. Unremarkable in its taste. Ho-hum. Wets the palate well. Dry, semi-bitter finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brown bottle from Whole foods. Hazy golden yellow hued having average white diminishing head with good lacing. Soft carbonation. Soft flowery hop aroma. Light bodied that starts with dry, light nutty malt flavor and finishes dry with hint of bitterness. Unlike Wychwood’s Fiddler’s Elbow, I did not detect skunk in Scarecrow ale. A decent drinkable beer.

Bottle: Got it for the organic quality. Got more than I bargained for. It had some caramel and some hops to it. Was not excellent, but I was expecting a 1 or 2 out of 5... and it was slightly better to me.

Pale piss w/ minimal thin head.
Hm, smells like a wet locker room and corn accompanied by some hops and pine.
It tastes about the same, moderately sweet and cornish. No real bitterness or weight.
It’s a disappointment, but I could drink it for the alcohol.
