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.

A metalic aroma and flavor to this beer. A weak watery palate with an off bitter flavor. If there is malt here I sure can’t identify it. Not much. If the beer was as good as the bottle and label looked it would be killer but it’s not.

Had this at a beer and cheese tasting. It was paired with Lord of the Hundreds - Sussex - Raw Ewe’s milk cheese. Decent enough beer with a nice floral hop aroma. Not a whole lot of malt in the aroma or the taste. Nothing really makes this stand out as an ESB. My gold standard for this style is Fuller’s ESB on cask - in London.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2006
Caramel malts, with grassy hops in aroma. Taste is simialr an quite drinkable, and quite balanced also. Minimal wychwood burntish taste which can only be a good thing.

dhshool (22) - Richmond, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2006
This 500 ml bottle is labeled: Wychwood Scarecrow Golden Pale Ale Pours a dark, cloudy straw color with a smaller than average head and a little bit of lacing. Smell is citrus with a hint of malt. Feels a bit more carbonated than it acts. Taste is malt / citrus with a bit of bitterness. Aftertaste is a bit metallic. A pretty smooth, very drinkable ale - this is from a mainly pilsner drinker. Would buy again.

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - FEB 18, 2006
This was an all organic beer. The 500 ml. bottle poured a sparkling clear golden colored beverage with a small smooth white head that was mostly diminishing but left some lacing on the glass. The aroma had a rich roasted malt character with nice undertones of floral hops. The body was medium to full with lively carbonation and a dry, clean texture. The initial flavor was slightly bitter with a sweet background. The finish was long and brought out a bit of an alcohol warmth to accompany the nice bitter end.

Bottle. Nice hop aroma of sweet fruit. Almost clear copper colour. Stable white head. Thin mouthfeel. Flavour is yeasty with some aromatic hoppiness. Slightly above medium bitterness. Watery aftertaste.
