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.

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.

VinegarStroke (289) - Napa, California, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Bottle: light haze, straw, very light head and lace. This has a funky yeasty, malty nose. Dominated by bottle condition and spice. Dry, not sour and moderate bitterness. Medium weight and flavor. Very traditional old world ale. Certainly like a cask beer from yesteryear. This beer reminds me of Coopers Pale Ale more than any beer I’ve ever taste. There’s a dank, yeasty profile. Honey, malt and spice. First time I’ve tasted this beer and its full of memories.

Calisky (1204) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JAN 28, 2015
Couleur dorée très légère mousse bouche. Nez Malt et caramel, typique premium bitter. Gout malté et leger caramel avec notes fruitéé, bien cremeux. Pas mal.

Dzhigga (162) - Kirov, RUSSIA - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle. Amber color with small disappearing head. Aroma is malty, some flower notes. Taste is medium bitter, some citrus notes. Medium-bodied beer. Finish is bitter and rather long. Good beer.

ILduce (215) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle LCBO: amber orange beer with small white head. Slightly cloudy. Grassy, herbal nose with some malt. Taste is much the same, but is imparted with a stale aftertaste. Bitter throughout and thin body. Not horrible by any stretch.

sinfull (930) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Good bitter . Maybe too much close to lager , but still good. Light amber color , medium white head. Malt , caramel, English hop and hint of fruits in aroma. Same notes in taste. Moderate bitterness in finish and aftertaste.

NallePalle (169) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle. Overall a pleasant bitter, though with features reminding about a pale ale, but without hoppiness and not too prominent citrus - good. Had this with mushroom soup.
