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.

I really enjoyed this brew, it was sweet but at the same time bitter, very balanced, I would LOVE to see this on draft!!

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2005
Pour is golden amber with a big dense off white head...smell is incredibly skunky and grassy...taste is bitter and metallic vegetable and absolutely undrinkable...

I was really disappointed with this, it lacked in all categories, as well as being unbalanced and harsh. Overall it is an unpleasant glass of ale...sorry! Bottle from Morrisons Wetherby.

Sigmund (5613) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 28, 2005
500 ml bottle, bought in Denmark. Golden colour, fluffy head diminishing rapidly. Moderate but pleasant hoppy aroma with citrussy elements and some toffee. Flavour is rather lager-like, with a grapefruity bitterness with some metallic notes in the finish. I started drinking it far too cold, improves a bit as it warms up, but not much. Reasonably refreshing, but no masterpiece.

Probably one of the worst craft beers I’ve tried. Too bad they have such nice labels, really suckered me in.

Looked a picture on a hot summer’s day. I even went so far as to chill it lightly. However the overwhelming fizzy taste masked most of what lay beneath and I ended feeling slightly disappointed.

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 13, 2005
Pours a clear amber color with an almost white head. Not much going on in the aroma department. Taste is yeasty and somewhat bitter. Not a great pale ale, but not bad either.

TBone (13707) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2005
Bottled (BB 12/2005)
Honey golden color, creamy off-white head. Flowery hops in the aroma. Hard metallic malt character, ashy flavor with flowery hops. Light hoppy bitter aftertaste. Unbalanced.

highlandlad (1434) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JUN 1, 2005
Summery English organic ale. Lager gold colour, quick-diminishing white head. Floral aroma with some citric hops. Lemony flavour and sweetish. Refreshing summer drinking.

Pleasing golden appearance with a fresh clean slightly citric taste. Pretty avarage though with nothing outstanding to write about.
