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.

Pour to a medium bodied head, but it disappeared quickly. Golden in color. Not a strong smell to it. Not overly tasteful, but a decent beer. A slight more carbonation than other beers of the same style.

Lisowczyk (45) - 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.

MarcoDL (2134) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2014
Boring Britt beer. Watery body of malt and some modest hops. Bit like a pilsner actually.

ejr (118) - 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 (1242) - 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.

_BaR_ (18) - Padova, ITALY - JUN 22, 2014
Aroma scarso. In bocca appare per lo più il malto, ma resta leggera e ben bilanciata. Un po’ banale, può andar bene per mangiare una pizza.

stantheman (634) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
A 50 cl bottle from BCL stores. A pleasantly orange amber beer with a bit of whitish head. A trace of malt on the nose. A slightly hopped, slightly fruity-citrus, mostly malted beer, with a medium length malted finish. Pleasant summer drinking, but why anyone would bother to ship a beer like this all the way from England is rather beyond me. 2.8.
