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.

Fatehunter (1239) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 22, 2013
A thin head with no retention on a hazy, dirty straw colored body. The aroma is malty with apricot. The taste is watery overall, mild bitterness and lemon. The texture is smooth, moderate carbonation and medium body. A disappointment, particularly in the taste department.

3 finger head. some leaves lacing. pale clear carbinaded. smells of mass produced lager a little and citrus. Taste veary little watery and light with a heavy body. Grassy and citrus(lime,tangerine,grapefruit,(lot of lime)) Like a craft lime beer but ale style instead of lager. Not great, but is good. Easy drinking.

Shot (150) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2014
From a bottle. Pours golden with almost no head. Skunky aromas with faint smell of hops. Flavors are herbal with cut grass, biscuit and slight citrus tones. A rather unimpressive, herbal hop finish--almost unpleasant. Light, fizzy mouthfeel. What happened to this beer? I’ve had this in the past and it wasn’t this bland and uninteresting. This is the last time I waste my time with Scarecrow.

Raistlin (126) - London, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2014
Very smooth and easy drinking beer. Loved it. Has light texture with loads of taste packed into it. Average carbonation witch gives it a lively bite. Pleasant after taste that doesn’t;t linger.

Psytron (1325) - Turku, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2014
Smell of malt. Cloudy amber colour, high white foamy head. Aroma of herbs, malt, rubber. Bitter. Artificial taste. Flat carbon, mildly oily texture. Quite a disappointment.

Rated based on notes taken 15 Jul 2011 -- A good easy drinking beer, nothing in particular to keep me coming back for more, however.

A very pleasing aroma, with a taste of forest and wood with a somewhat roasty finish. Remains on your tongue, but not in an unpleasant way.

Lisowczyk (58) - POLAND - AUG 15, 2014
Butelka Barwa złota, pływają jakieś nieapetyczne farfocle. Piana niska, szybko redukuje się do kożucha. W zapachu kwiaty, owoce, nieco słodu - przyjemny. Smak to owoce, cytrusy, kwiaty, słód. Goryczka niska, lekko zalegająca. Lekkie, pijalne, ale nieco bez wyrazu.

Boring Britt beer. Watery body of malt and some modest hops. Bit like a pilsner actually.
