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.

Looked a picture on a hot summerís 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.

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 (1431) - 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.

dwyerpg (4727) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 28, 2005
This is nice. Pretty similar to their Fiddlerís Elvow. Is hoppy but not very heavy. Slightly fruity but not too much. Easily drinkable, and not skunky in my opinion.

robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2005
Gold Coloring with White Head. Skunky Aroma..Lightly Grassy. Hops, Bitter Taste...a Bit Watery.... The Scarecrow is Effective in Keeping me Away.

badgerben (4540) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2005
Amber color with no head. Skunky, skunky, skunky... Itís the spawn of skunk with no redeeming factors. Iím sure if it wasnít shipped in a clear bottle it might be okay, but...

Parrothead (292) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2005
Nice white head, long lasting, slightly murkey yellow color. Grassy nose, well rounded mouthfeel. Not exactly sure what the target is, could take it or leave it.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 28, 2005
Very clear and golden with little head. Buttery aroma with a little caramel. Spritzy on the palate with an unpleasant bitter finish. Weak in flavor, astringent and grainy. Also, watery.
