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.

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.

MiP (15253) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JAN 27, 2006
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.

orange golden color. no head. malt and mild hop aroma. similar to the fiddler’s elbow but with even less flavor believe it or not. malty, caramel flavor. chewy and sweet.

larsga (7246) - 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 (25195) - 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 (10528) - 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 (9498) - 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.

Deep amber color with a slight cloudyness. Fizzy with a short head. Somewhat fruity flavor that sours quickly.
