Served cool from 500ml bottle into pint mug.

A) Deepish amber colour, slight haze with a few bubbles. Tight white head.

S) Slightly metallic biscuity light malt. Let's be kind and say there is a hint of toffee in there.

T) Watery first, caramelish malt comes in second, then metallic hints. Weak English hops at the back.

M) Thin and watery. The aftertaste is not good, but doesn't linger too long.

O) Don't bother with this one, there are 30 better beers on the supermarket shelf.

Not impressive scent. but smooth and nice colour. Because it has only 4.7% alcohol by volume, I can drink it in a smooth way. Even though it is a kind of pale ale, it is more like larger taste to me.

Bottle poured into an English pub glass. On the light side of orange-amber, with quick breaking white head that dissolves into a halo of bubbles that ring the inside of the glass. Has a low key mellow aroma of lightly toasted malts (like shredded wheat cereal), dry herbal English hops, very subtle citrus peel (lemon and orange) ... I am inclined to compare this to the similar Fuller's Organic Honeydew and I think this compares favorably. The malt flavors are richer, the hops are quite floral and recall faint citrus and fragrant grass, and the finish is crisp, herbal, and slightly orchard fruity. The herbal flavors become more pronounced over time, almost a little sage or something, and the overall effect shifts from quite dry to sweet. There is a minor but noticeable metallic tang. I find these English blonde or summer ales to be a tad bland, and in my view these should not be lumped with other English pales. Aw well. This one probably ain't worth the price tag.

Im just going to assume they call it scarecrow because it will scare you away from ever buying it again.

Sampling right now on 8/16/14. Comes in a 500ml (16.09 ounce) bottle with a cool label that costs about $5.00. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a handled glass stein.

Pours a hazy golden in color with a very thin white head. Some light spotty lacing is seen that settles back down the sides of the glass when sipped. The aroma is nothing really special actually just of some musty herbal grains. The taste is pretty close to the aroma with lots of malts up from followed by a slight bitter hoppy dry crisp finish. Medium bodied and medium carbonation. Overall, it was just OK and a once try brew for me. Not a big fan of the 'Pale Ale' types as they are all over the board with MOST in the very average range, like this one.
