    Organic pale ale. Pale or bitter...either way the result was a resounding "meh". Thin and watery, lightly hopped and a little muddled. Nothing really stands out but for a bit of earthiness from the hops. The malt is pretty non-descript in this forgetable ale.

    500 ml capped bottle, as Scarecrow Organic Golden Pale Ale. Poured in an English tulip pint a light hazy and copper-brown coloured Pale Ale with a one finger light beige foamy head that has a mid-sized retention and tons of micro bubbles. Soft carbonation. Some lacing. The aroma is light roasted malts, caramel, faint grassy hops and fruity notes, citrussy. The flavour is toasted and caramel malts, sweety, faint fruity tones, apples and a light hoppy bitterness. The mouthfeel is light crispy, fizzy, smooth and quite thin. The texture is watery. This light bodied Pale Ale has a dry malty and a bit sticky finish. A drinkable Ale in which the bitterness is quite soft. I wonder about the term " E.S.B. ". Ist it really the best or right one for the brew ?

    Clear darker yellow with small white foam head, lacing to glass. Aroma is slighty malty, some earth. Taste is good British bitter, like it. Aftertaste is normal lasting. (Moscow 201305)

    Bottle says Scarecrow. Pours a huge bubbly white foamy head. Appearance is slight dark golden colours. Has thick lacing. Malty aromas as well as some grassy/earthy and floral scents. Pretty faint hops. Flavours are of light roasted malts. Some citrus like flavours as well, more hoppy in taste than aromas. Has a creamy mouthfeel. Smoothness on the palate. Average retention and medium carbonation. Not too bad, easy drinking.

    If I didn't know this was imported and organic, I would call it borderline swill. Labeled on the bottle as a golden ale, described here as ESB...I would best describe it as a pilsner. Flavor is grassy and corn. Kind of watery with a flatter feel. Mouthfeel is on the smoother side. Besides that, there is really nothing going on here.

    LCBO Outlet #255 (Milton, Ontario, Canada – Main / Bronte)
    500ml bottle
    4.7% ABV
    The beer is part of a Wychwood Variety Pack available at the LCBO for Christmas and I had the 'Scarecrow' version. The beer pours a translucent pale reddish gold colour with a short-lived half inch white head. The aroma is weak grains, some earthy hops, and butterscotch. Mouthfeel is light to medium-bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour is grass, muddy hops, and weak caramel sweetness.

    This one came in a 4-pack of different brews from Wychwood, under the name "Scarecrow" from the LCBO. This organic golden pale ale pours a slightly hazy, golden-amber colour, with a creamy-frothy head that has decent retention and thick lacing all around. Pretty good looking for a beer of this type. After the first pour, aromas of a fresh pilsner come out of this one. After breathing, cereal and caramel malts, alcohol join in. The taste is quite mild compared to the scent. Slick oily mouthfeel with a little dryness from the hop in the finish. Very light grain and cereal flavours. Still, not a bad golden ale, especially being an organic one (not as noticeable as some I have had).

    Very thin pour with a medium dense head. Looks nitrogenated but there's no widget. To call this a pale ale would be an overstatement. It's the palest ale I've ever seen. It has almost no aroma. Maybe a little mustiness. Delicate body. I think the term "eurolager" sums it up. The taste is not bad. Clean grain and more mustiness. Metallic finish. Not a horrible beer, just not good for the price

    This bottle was labeled Scarecrow. Aroma faintly smells of crackers. Great malt flavor--I don't know how to describe it except to say what it is not: not much caramel, no chocolate, just a nice counterweight to the brisk, light hop profile, which mostly consists of orange zest. some bitter orange flavor in the aftertaste. Another nice beer from Wychwood. And I love their labels.

    Pours moderately dark amber hazy in a glass. Kind of weak little follow through in the flavor department. A little too sweet for a pale ale, Not bad as far as body goes reasonably refreshing. Oh well on to the next one.
