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.

50 cl bottle. Aroma has dough, barnyard, skunky. Color is amber, liquid is cloudy, head is frothy and minimal head. Taste has medium sweetness, edium bitterness, lightly sour, salty. Light body, slick feel, soft carbonation. All in all a good brew.

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 (48) - 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.

ejr (139) - Sarpsborg, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2014
Klar lys kobberfarge med et hvit skum. Aroma av malt, blomst, frukt og karamell. Smaken følger aroma, men her finner vi litt syrlig frukt og sitrus.

lesifflebiere (1249) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2014
Couleur ambre, avec une faible mousse soutenue par une effervescence retenue. Nez en sucre candi et en caramel. La bouche est sucrée, mais avec une finale relativement amère : le problème est que, malgré tout, elle est plutôt aqueuse. Sinon, les saveurs sont à peu près dans les tons. Il ne s’agit en fait que d’une timide bitter, trop timide même, mais pas méchante du tout.
