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.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - FEB 19, 2007
Pours a piss yellow colour, with a short lived frothy head that bubbles down to a thin white film and white ring. Aroma of wet grass and grains. Flavour isn’t super interesting, malty flavors up front, give way to a toasted bread sort of flavor, with a hoppy mildly bitter finish. Nothing really complex, but not bad. This beer doesn’t really do anything wrong, it just lacks any sort of individuality.

Jamedra (754) - 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.

sound67 (731) - 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.

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.

ERB92 (706) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2013
Hay, bread and hops in the aroma. Clear golden looking with a white head. Medium sweet and quite bitter tasting, Light body with a medium carbonation. Overall an OK bitter.

terrybail (704) - London, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2014
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

jgentgesdo (694) - 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.
