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.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - SEP 25, 2012
500ml Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium amber with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that reduced to a thick film with a medium collar and good streaky lacing. The aroma was of a light grain malt, floral hops and a mild sweet yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (orange) and a mild fruity ester. The taste was light sweet and malty with a mild hint of caramel throughout and a light hoppy citrus bitterness towards the end. The flavor was short lived, with pretty much all flavor disappearing rather quickly. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a somewhat moderate carbonation. Overall this brew does offer a good drinkability, but is kind of light in flavor...

Pours clear golden, big offwhite head, little lacing. Nose of light malts, some citrusy/spicy/herbal notes and a hint of honey. Tastes light sour and light sweet upfront, very light bitterness gets more prominent on finish. High carbonation, somewhat sticky finish. A light refreshing summer golden ale, somewhat overcarbonated.

This beer was average at best it didn't have good malts to hop flavors. It was light on the pour and had a light head! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
