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.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Pale amber, vaguely hazy from the yeasty sediment. A very lively head, but unfortunately it collapses rather fast. Lovely floral, hoppy aroma. Weakly caramelish and sweetish. The aroma hops don’t leave much bitterness. A nice - and organic - experience. 290703

oh6gdx (20217) - 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.

anders37 (16289) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2006

Golden color. Some malt, sugars, high ending bitterness, nothing special. Too sharp.

saxo (13796) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2007
Bottle. Small head with short duration. Color is light amber. Aroma is mainly hops, but also some barnyard malt. Taste is much better and real good balanced with a decent amount of hops. Nice bitter finish.
