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.

Jamedra (750) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 3, 2014
Láhev 500 ml. Aroma je lehké chmelové s jemný sladovým nádechem. Pěna je jasně bílá, jemná, vysoká a pomalu mizící. Barva samotného piva je zlatá. Chuť je vcelku mdlá, je zde znát jen slad s opravdu slabým banánovým nádechem, který rychle přechází do držícího finiše který není příliš příjemný. Čekal jsem od tohoto piva trochu něco víc, postrádá pestrost.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2005
Pale hazy yellow. Thick white head, doesn´t last very long though. Citric, hoppy nose. Spicy flavour. Acidic, chemical taste. Fruity. Great bitterness. Refreshing with segments of herbs and yeast. Medium to full bodied.

bjakk (736) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - JAN 12, 2014
Yellow, cloudy, with white creamy head, that dosnt last. very mild sour fruit in the aroma. Mild taste malt, fruit metalic bitterness, The aftertaste grows little as you drink more. High in carbon.

shorlin (721) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - OCT 4, 2013
Aroma is a bit unpleasant at first. Some grassiness, but my first impression was cat fur (not kidding). Mellows out a bit with some maltiness, but not really good. Colour is standard amber, bit of a head that leaves some residual foam. Not much lace. Taste is non-existent at first, then changing to bad. Not bitter, but astringent. This is really not a good beer.

bottle from the LCBO Pours a medium pale orangey yellow Better then most macro beers but only average overall I think this is a Golden ale and not an ESB

sound67 (702) - Offenbach, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2009
50cl bottle, "Circlemaster". Slightly hazy, pale golden colour, small white head disappears quickly, minimal lacing. Intense aroma of apples and malt, some hops. Hoppy, sour citrus notes and bitterness dominate at first, but the finish is slightly sweet, with a wee touch of banana lurking through. The sour-and-sweet character makes Circlemaster a very refreshing pale ale (a premium esb it is NOT), though I’d marginally prefer the same company’s WychCraft blonde.

jgentgesdo (693) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 25, 2004
Pours yellow with thin white head with good lacing. Nose is slightly skunky. The front half of the taste is lost in skunk. The latter half is hoppy and might be pleasant if this beer had not been ruined by ultraviolet light. Sigh.

bluemeow76 (693) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - NOV 26, 2002
This had a terrible skunky smell, I could really hardly drink it. There was some hoppiness and the bottle art was cool - but the smell was just unbearable. If I have a chance, I may give this another try, it just seems like it should be better!

mabjork (692) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 7, 2006
Bottled. It’s pale yellow with minor white head. The aroma mainly consists of hops. The flavour is sweetish with hops and has a watery after taste.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 2, 2003
Light copper hue. Some carbonation. Pleasant enough looking head. Mild aroma of yeast, malt, and a little of hops. Reasonably bitter with a bit of malty aftertaste/residue in the mouth. Didn't taste a whole lot different than Fiddler's Elbow to me.
