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.

weeicemon (126) - Lancaster, California, USA - OCT 11, 2008
Pours cloudy with cidery, pungent nose. More cider with initial mouthful that works into a sour bitterness. It’s almost like this beer was orginally made to be an IPA. but was changed at the last minute. The effort is there but overall a let down.

AleRider78 (672) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2016
aka Circle Master. Pours a huge bubbly white foamy head. Appearance is slight dark golden colours. Has thick lacing. Malty aromas as well as some grassy/earthy and floral scents. Pretty faint hops. Flavours are of light roasted malts. Some citrus like flavours as well, more hoppy in taste than aromas. Has a creamy mouthfeel. Smoothness on the palate. Average retention and medium carbonation. Not too bad, easy drinking.
